Rapid Berry just posted some specs for an upcoming device codenamed 'Aristo'.
Hardware wise it's quite a beast. Qualcomm APQ 8064 quad core SOC with LTE. The 8064 has 4 Krait cores (the LTE Galaxy S III has 2 Krait cores) along with an Adreno 320 GPU. 4.65" 1280x720 OCTA Glass OLED display. I wonder if it's the display from the Galaxy Nexus.
There will be North American and Euro versions both of which support LTE. A CDMA version for Verizon wasn't mentioned.
There's a 8MP rear facing camera along with a 2MP in front, 16GB of storage with a MicroSD card slot. 802.11abgn with Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and DLNA. As far as connectors goes there are microUSB and micro HDMI ports.
I'm pretty excited that there are going to be stereo speakers along with a non-removable 2800mAh battery.
Size wise it's 136 x 68 x 88.5mm. To compare the Galaxy S III is 136.6 x 70.6 x 86 mm.
Of course it will be running Blackberry 10.
Monster indeed. Hopefully Blackberry can get this device out as quickly as possible. If not there are going to be a number of Android devices with similar specifications when it comes out.
On the mark the spot app, AT&T just told me they plan to launch "our faster LTE network in your area in about 60 days". What does this mean? Downtown wvu campus is the problem, speeds usually 0-5 mbs...
