BlackBerry cuts 200 jobs
Hardware specification for BlackBerry Hamburg leaked Reuters

An Android powered BlackBerry handset bearing model number STH100-x and codenamed Hamburg has been spotted at the GFXBench site with all its hardware details. Considering the specs, the device seems to fit in the mid-range segment of the smartphone market. But specs could alter anytime and the final product could be very different from what has been listed.

Recently, BlackBerry CEO John Chen revealed the company has plans for two more Android devices coming by the end of 2016, without providing further details about them. These two handsets are said to be codenamed Hamburg and Rome. Thanks to GFXBench we now have some idea about the features the BlackBerry Hamburg is equipped with.

The operating system for BlackBerry Hamburg noted in the GFXBench is the latest Android Marshmallow version 6.0.1. It would sport a 5.2in screen with full HD resolution at 1920 x 1080 pixels. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 615 chip featuring an octa-core processor would be a powerhouse for the handset. The octa-core processor would be coupled with the Adreno 405 graphics unit.

Other key features are 3GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. There would be a 12 megapixel rear camera at the back and a seven megapixel (or more likely eight megapixel) front-facing camera for clicking selfies.

If you want to know how the Hamburg looks like here is some good news. BlackBerries.ru has posted a render of the smartphone. Note that this is not a leak, but a render only.
