BlackBerry to launch 64-bit octacore smartphone this year

BlackBerry will launch its rumoured 64-bit octacore smartphone this year, according to reports.

BlackBerry has been quiet on the smartphone front since it confirmed it would not be launching any new devices until at least April.

However, according to a source speaking to Pocket-Lint, BlackBerry is preparing to end that smartphone drought with the launch of its much-rumoured octacore smartphone before the end of this year.

It had been thought the phone wouldn’t see the light of day until 2015 at the earliest. However, according to the source, it will instead be unveiled in September at a currently unconfirmed event.

The source also confirmed that the smartphone would come with support for 64-bit, suggesting that it will come with at least 4GB of RAM. The smartphone will also come with support for OpenGL3 as well.

Previous rumours have claimed that the octacore processor that will make an appearance in the smartphone is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM8994. It has been claimed to run at 2.5GHz per core.
BlackBerry is rumoured to be working on several mid-range phones. There is no indication when the company will be unveiling them.

It isn’t thought to be making an appearance at Mobile World Congress. It has also confirmed it will not be holding its previously-annual BlackBerry World conference in 2014.
