The Blackberry London powered by Blackberry 10 (BB10) leaked another time, but in a video this time.
Wired reports a RIM (Research In Motion) employee was spotted showing a demo of the Blackberry London running BB10 in Mexico. The video gives us a better idea on what the handset will look like running the next generation software of RIM.
The handset shown in the video resembles previously leaked photos of the London. The handset in the video is shown sporting curved edges similar to the leaked images previously seen in past reports.
At approximately a minute, the Blackberry London finally is shown. Although the person recording seems to bed experiencing issues focusing, Blackberry 10 is still clearly seen running on the handset. It shows the RIM employee seamlessly flicking in between home screens.
The phone is seen connecting to Blackberry’s App World. However, a sign pops up on the screen that says, “Connected For Demonstration Purposes Only.” This hints the Curve 9360 maker has not finished working on Blackberry 10, which means this is not the finished version.
The camera on the Blackberry London is also demoed. It features a shot selection mode that allows the user to run his finger around in search of the best looking picture taken. This can also be used with group shots, which allows users to choose the best looking snap.
Weeks ago, the specs of the Blackberry London surfaced on the internet, which revealed notably powerful hardware. According to the leak, the London will sport a 4.2-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1,280×768 pixels, which bests the iPhone 5’s retina display resolution. Other specs include an 8-megapixel primary camera and a 2-megapixel secondary camera.
