BlackBerry is likely to launch its latest smartphone – BlackBerry Classic – in India on January 15. The company has already sent out invitations to the media for a January 15 event, teasing “the unveiling of the new BlackBerry 10”.

BlackBerry recently unveiled the Classic smartphone featuring full QWERTY keyboard, physical navigation keys and design language of the BlackBerry Bold 9900.

The BlackBerry Classic runs BlackBerry OS 10.3.1 and is powered by a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor along with 2GB of RAM. The BlackBerry Classic has a 3.5-inch touch display, 294 dpi HD resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

It sports an 8MP rear facing camera and 2MP front facing camera. It has 16GB of device storage (expandable by up to another 128GB via Micro SD card).

Other important features of the Classic include BlackBerry Blend, digital assistant BlackBerry Assistant, dual app storefronts – BlackBerry World and Amazon Appstore, and BlackBerry Hub.

BlackBerry's latest smartphone is available in the US for $449 which is roughly Rs. 28,392.51 .  There's no word on the India pricing of the smartphone yet. We hope BlackBerry to price the smartphone competitively in order to give a tougher competition in the budget or perhaps mid-range smartphone segment.
