    Here are some updates for the Blackberry Classic

    "According to Value Walk, the Classic will come in a 3.5-inch display and will be installed with a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. It will also have a built-in 2 GB Ram and an expandable card slot that could accommodate up to 64 GB. The phone will run using the latest BlackBerry 10.3 operating system. Also, several reports said that it will be the thinnest BlackBerry phone that will be released in the market.

    But unlike the earlier BlackBerry phones, the Classic will allegedly come with a powerful 13-megapixel camera that can compete with the other leading smartphones in the market today."

    "The Blackberry Q20, also known as the Blackberry Classic, will be launched in November, bringing back the physical navigation keys and trackpad just like its forerunners. It is said to appear much bigger and squarer than the previous Blackberry series. It takes back the "belt," just above the QWERTY keyboard, because users of the Q10 were looking for this feature. The keyboard stretches from edge to edge along the bottom of the phone which makes the typing experience way better as the keyboard is now easier to use. It has a 3.5 inch screen that will also be square, with 1,440 x 1,440 pixels screen resolution and a 582 ppi pixel density."

    "It gives a wide display of 60 characters, making the webpage viewing pleasurable and reading documents much easier. It has a dual core processor at 1.5 GHz with a 2GB RAM, and a long lasting 2,525 mAh battery. It can now support NFC and 4G LTE. It is rumored to be running Blackberry 10.3 OS, supposedly an unreleased OS. The new Blackberry Classic is believed to be the thinnest handset Blackberry has ever produced having a dimension of 130 x 72 x 9mm.Based on the leaked prototype images, it appears to have stereo speakers and external nano-SIM or microSD card slots. No information has been made to date regarding the front/ back camera specifications and the HDMI port inclusion.
    The new device is positioned as a mid-range smartphone and is going to cost at around $235 to $250 with contract.
    Interestingly, Blackberry has not released any pictures of the device yet. Different speculations surround Blackberry Classic's released date, but are rumored to hit the shelves in November or December."

    Enjoy guys!

    This is 100% correct. Unfortunately with BBRY's mobile market share decline, fewer news sites kept up writing about Blackberry. Scams, trolls and sites hunting for easy ad $'s by posting clickbait have filled in the gap for leaks we all so desperately search for. It's a shame, and in many ways that misinformation devalues the Blackberry brand and pushes the general public away from looking at BBRY as a serious mobile phone company.

    We should all be more careful before posting articles and avoid feeding these clickbait machines.

    2 more devices should be launching in the next 6 months excluding Classic
    The 2 are both all touch devices. It makes sense because both Classic (when it launches. I'm not sure the date is correct ) and Passport are keyboard
