The BlackBerry Windermere is a handset that we have been hearing about lately. It’s an interesting device since it features a display with an aspect ratio of 1:1, making the phone appear to be very oddly shaped. Now thanks to photos obtained by the folks at N4BB, we now have another look at the Windermere along with some of its rumored specs.
Now we should note that the device has yet to be made official, so do take these specs with a grain of salt for now. For starters the display of the Windermere is said to be at least 4-inches. It will feature a resolution of 1440×1440, with N4BB confirming that it will have 480 DPI, which is pretty impressive, although kind of expected when you have such a small screen with a high resolution.
They also claim that the Windermere will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8974 processor and will be accompanied by 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 OpenGL GPU. The phone will also sport a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, microSD card support, and a gesture-based keyboard.
One of the interesting aspects of the Windermere was its gesture-based keyboard. This will allow users to swipe over it instead of pressing on it. This will allow for more functionality without actually needing extra buttons of additional screen space. It’s a unique idea although we have to wonder if it will pay off. No word on when BlackBerry plans on announcing the Windermere, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for it.
