The BalackBerry Leap is official now, announced at the company’s MWC 2015 press conference and if you value productivity, communication, and on the same time security seriously, then you have to review the newly announced handset.
The latest member of the BlackBerry smartphone family, dubbed BlackBerry Leap is a budget friendly and mid-range offering from the Canadian firm. The BlackBerry Leap has a 5-inch HD display with a pixel density of 294ppi. Under the hood, there’s rather outdated Snapdragon S4 Plus SoC clocked at 1.5GHz dual-core Krait CPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage but further it can be expandable via microSD card slot that supports up to 128GB.
The BlackBerry‘s Leap brings 8-megapixel auto-focus rear camera with LED flash out of the box, which is capable to record full HD (1080px) videos at 30fps and has a 5x digital zoom. In my thought, zooming on a smartphone is waste and considering it is nonsense. The battery package under the texture soft back cover is powered by a 2,800mAh unit and unfortunately it’s removable. BlackBerry rates the leap can last up to 25 hours of heavy usage. BlackBerry Messenger for the sake!
The Leap runs BlackBerry 10.3.1 out of the box and for your satisfaction you can check the company’s promo video below.
The BlackBerry Leap is priced at $275 which is a contract free rate and will launch in April this year. Unlocked!
