Can Blackberry make a comeback?Advertisement
The years and the market have been tough on Blackberry, but it appears that the company has not given up yet. The company is slated to release BlackBerry Hamburg sometime soon, with some reports saying even within the week.
According to iTechPost, the device comes via the model name STH100-2 (RJD211LW) and was just revealed through the Federal Communications Commission, indicating it will be reaching the market soon. According to the report, the device will be manufactured by TCL. It will also feature a 2610mAh battery and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset.
The chipset, however, could be a turn-off for some, because it is not the most powerful. Nonetheless, other features of the product include 3GB of RAM and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It will also feature 16GB of internal memory, which is not a lot, thus the expandable feature through a microSD card. The Harmburg will sport Bluetooth 4.2, LTE bands 2, 7, 38, and 41, 3G and 2G and Wi-Fi ac.
BlackBerry DTEK 50
On the other side of the spectrum, BlackBerry will also releasing the BlackBerry DTEK 50 sometime in August. According to Trusted Reviews, some of the key features include:
- 2-inch 1080p display
- Snapdragon 617 CPU
- 3GB RAM
- 16GB storage + microSD slot
- Android 6.0.1
- DTEK security app
- 13MP rear, 8MP front cameras
- Manufacturer: BlackBerry
According to the report, people may find it easier to warm up to the DTEK 50 as compared to the previous offerings of the company. However, it is not clear yet whether the offerings will be enough to put Blackberry on the map again.
