BlackBerry Torch 2 Running BlackBerry OS7 Pictures Leak

At the beginning of this month, Research In Motion (RIM) had unveiled the next generation BlackBerry Touch a.k.a BlackBerry 9900. The new Touch will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor from Qualcomm, and run on BlackBerry OS 7.

Today, the leaked pictures of another BlackBerry handset the Torch 2 have surfaced on the Internet.


The Torch 2 has similar internals to the BlackBerry 9900. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor from Snapdragon, and packs 768MB of RAM along with 8GB of internal memory. The resolution of the 3.2-inch capacitive unit has also been bumped to VGA (640×480).

The leaked picture also suggests that the back of the phone will sport a 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording capability. Other key features include GPS with A-GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth and NFC. The back of the phone will also have a metallic back cover.

I am guessing the Torch 2 will run on the next generation BlackBerry OS 7, which has an all new web browser and is much faster than its predecessors. Expect RIM to announce the Torch 2 officially and reveal more information about the handset in the next few weeks.
