The BlackBerry Leap Goes Official

The BlackBerry Leap is latest member of the BlackBerry 10 family. It is a midrange offering with looks eerily similar to the BlackBerry Z3. Specs-wise, it comes with a 5-inch 720p HD display resulting in a pixel density of 294 ppi. It packs an outdated Snapdragon S4 Plus chip (same as that of the BlackBerry Q10 and Classic) with a 1.5GHz dual-core Krait CPU and 2GB RAM. There is also 16GB of expandable internal storage.

Imaging-wise, the BlackBerry Leap features an 8-MP auto-focus camera with LED flash and up to 5x digital zoom. It can record videos up to 1080p Full HD resolution at 30 fps. Measuring 144 mm x 72.8 mm x 9.5 mm and weighing 170 grams, this smartphone is rather heavy. The battery under its textured soft back cover is 2,800 mAh and isn't removable. BlackBerry says it can last up to 25 hours of heavy use. The smartphone runs BlackBerry OS 10.3.1 out of the box and comes with BlackBerry Blend, BlackBerry Assistant, access to Android apps via the Amazon App Store, and more. It will launch in April 2015 for the price of $275, which is rather expensive for what it offers. Check out its promo video below:
