BlackBerry Curve Refresh Specs and Picture Leaked! 800Mhz CPU!

BlackBerry Curve Refresh

The good news keeps on rolling in. We now have the specs and a picture of an upcoming BlackBerry Curve series refresh that finally brings something new. No longer is the classic Curve hampered with a 320×240 resolution screen. According to BGR it will pack a 480×360 display along with a ton of other upgrades. IT ALSO HAS A 800Mhz CPU!!!! The other nice thing is it is coming wit Tri-Band UMTS/HSPA which means we will finally see 7.2Mbps possible speeds on a BlackBerry!

Here are the specs we know for you to drool over!

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Tri-band UMTS/HSPA 7.2Mbps
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n
  • GPS
  • NFC
  • 512MB of eMMC, 512MB of RAM
  • 5-megapixel camera with flash
  • HVGA 480 x 360 display
  • 1050 mAh battery
  • Tavor MG-1 800MHz CPU
  • BlackBerry OS 6.1
  • 11mm thin

Sadly there is no Bluetooth upgrade with the new low power spec but the 800Mhz CPU is HUGE! Anybody else now wondering if the Bold Dakota will have a 1Ghz CPU? Though the weird thing is that this Curve has a 1050mAh battery which might be tight on battery life.

  1. The lack of leaked phones was starting to worry me a bit. No longer…

  2. Okay…notice how the phone/menu icons aren’t buttons……..

  3. New phones! nice.. if this is 800mhz.. then the Dakota has to be AT LEAST that, so at least we know its not the same old 624mhz

  4. When is this baby supposed to be released?? Papa needs a new Blackberry… BAD!

  5. It’s very impressive with Tavor MG-1 (800MHz CPU)

  6. I still laugh when I see 512MB. Haha! *sigh*

  7. As dated as these specs seem, we all know its for the lower-end market which will probably eat it up.

  8. so isn’t this basically a better 9780? if they’re able to price these at like 29.99-49.99 on contract, i think people would buy these in huge numbers.

  9. Now, I’m gona get this too

  10. Well, before you guys drool, just keep in mind the current Marvell PXA-930 chipset in Torch, 9780 and many others (which was released in 2008) is originally clocked to 800Mhz and its codename is Tavor.

    RIM chose to underclock it to 624Mhz, if I recall correctly. So the CPU does not look like a new one to me.

  11. Looks like RIM is finally pushing on the gas pedal to get out of the ditch.

  12. Looks like a great entry level device for BB
