BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983

Apart from the Blackberry Passport, which drew some serious excitement after its specs leaked last week, it appears that the company is working on another smartphone.

Dubbed the BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983, this premium smartphone could be launched along side the BlackBerry Passport this September, according to PhoneArena, who have now published leaked specs of the smartphone. Check them out below.

The latest dose of rumors endow the BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983 with a 3.1" OLED touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 720 pixels (square-shaped display, similar to the one of the Passport), a dual-core, 1.5GHz SoC of unknown make, 2GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage.

The rear camera will be an 8MP one and will come with autofocus, as well as some sort of image stabilization; a 2MP front-facing snapper also completes the picture. The rear of the premium device will house a 2,100mAh battery. As far as connectivity is regarded, the Porsche Design P'9983 will be an LTE-enabled device and will support several bands (2,4,5,17). Unsurprisingly, the OS of choice will be BB OS 10.3.

It looks like Blackberry might have an exciting month this September with two high profile releases under its new CEO, John Chen, who has for long been regarded as turnaround specialist.

For the uninitiated, the Blackberry passport is a flagship device that the company is planning to launch in September. Leaked specs reveal that it will house a quad-core 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 with an Adreno 330 GPU for graphics. There will be 3GB of RAM on board with 32GB of native storage.
