Blackberry introduced the Blackberry Leap during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. However, reactions are generally towards the negative side for the Leap.
It’s a 5-inch smartphone running on an outdated Snapdragon S4 Plus processor and Blackberry OS version 10.3.1. It does have 2GB of RAM and 4G LTE connectivity.
The Blackberry Leap doesn’t have the physical keyboard of the Classic or Passport but uses the touchscreen input of the Z10.
It will be available in the US by April. Local availability here in the Philippines is yet to be confirmed.
