BlackBerry Storm 3 shows up, specs revealed

If the folks at BGR are revealing the truth, then the Blackberry Storm 3 is quite an impressive phone.

The Blackberry Storm 3 will feature the highest resolution display to ever ship on a BlackBerry smartphone — a 800 x 480-pixel display. The phone has a trackpad but not sure whether it will feature the SurePress display or not.

Based on the leaked details, BGR believes that RIM will change the Storm branding on the device — codenames are Monaco and Monza for the global devices.

Specification of the Blackberry Storm 3:

  • 1.2GHz processor
  • BlackBerry OS 6.1(with 3G mobile hotspot feature)
  • 3.7-inch 800 x 480 capacitive display
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Tri-band UMTS/HSPA
  • 5-megapixel camera with 720p video recording
  • 8GB eMMC (storage for apps and data), 512MB of RAM
  • microSD slot
  • Magnetometer
  • Proximity sensor
  • Accelerometer
  • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
  • 2.4GHz b/g/n and 5GHz a/n Wi-Fi + UMA
  • 3G Mobile hotspot
  • Optical trackpad
  • 1230 mAh battery
  • OpenGL ES 2.0

The only disappointment is- the Blackberry Storm 3 will only be available sometime September this year which is like 7-9 months down the road.
