As expected, the much awaited BlackBerry Leap smartphone has been launched for the Indian consumers, today. The highlight specifications of the device are 2GB of RAM, LTE connectivity, and 5inch HD display screen.
The device was expected to be launched in the country as BlackBerry Z3 was a good success here, which was launched last year. Now, looking at the specifications and the design, Leap is also looking a good contender but as always, the rest depends on it’s pricing.
At this moment, there is no word on BlackBerry Leap price in India. But, the device is going to be available from the next week, so we don’t have to wait long to know the exact pricing.
In the US, where it is already available, it holds a price tag of $275, that fairly converts to approximately 17k INR. Now, keeping that price tag in mind, let’s take a look at complete specifications and features offered by the device.
Before starting with the specifications, this device does offer a high level of security to each and every user data within. It helps in keeping your personal or business data completely private, which isn’t the case with Android OS, since it’s open-source.
Also, BlackBerry has pre-loaded it with lots of business standard applications and features which are definitely going to make it easy for the business persons to like it. No doubt, this brand is still very popular among productive users.
Here are your specifications now,
- Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus chipset
- Dual-core 1.5GHz processor
- Adreno 305 GPU
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB of internal storage

With 2GB of RAM, multitasking will be charming and the battery life offered by the device is claimed to be up to 25 hours, which is really impressive.
So, is this looking a good deal to you? Personally, I’m still a BlackBerry fan. So, I am always looking forward to the devices they are coming with. This device is also a good one and it is better than all other Android smartphones in the competition in two areas, Security and Business related productivity focus.
