Blackberry Classic officially announced, goes on sale

Canadian handset manufacturer Blackberry may have teased us with a pre-order of its new device a month ago, and now the company goes back to roots as it officially launches the Blackberry Classic to the public today.


The Classic is believed to be the successor to the Blackberry Bold 9900 and it features the classic and iconic QWERTY mobile keyboard and trackpad every corporate user loves, along with a slew of other features we’ve seen before during the pre-order sale. It will run on its native Blackberry 10.3 OS, and can support installation of Android apps via the Amazon AppStore.

Blackberry Classic specs:

3.5-inch Touchscreen display, 720×720 @294ppi
Corning Gorilla Glass 3
1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 dual-core processor
16GB internal storage
expandable up to 128GB via microSD card
8MP autofocus rear camera with LED Flash
2MP front camera
Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0 LE with A2DP
2515mAh Li-Ion battery (non-removable)
Blackberry OS 10.3.1

The new Blackberry device goes on sale worldwide for $449, or roughly around Php 20,100 when it arrives on our shores.

    and worldwide? No! For NA and Canada regions only, as for now. If only we have Amazon Philippines then it will do.

      Goes on sale = ibenta sa publiko, NOT cut prices

      Lol I didn’t say we’re included, kaya nga USD yung first currency ng price, and may estimate pag dumating na satin. Haha

    goes on sale ibig sabihin ibebenta di “sale” na bargain…

  4. aki says:

    Kapag “Sale” may discount agad?? Di ba pwedeng ibebenta lang?? Ayos din mag-analyse itong sila Jhay at Khay eh.. Haha!

  5. ROB says:

    Sale = binebenta. Hindi “with discount/or bargain”

    Yung Jhay at Khay mga jejemon ata na walang alam kundi maghintay ng “sale”. Poor and low-life folks.

    Im actually glad that there is still a phone manufacturer that produces phones with a physical keyboard. I hope Globe or Smart offers this phone (or the Blackberry Passport) this year. I’ll be happy to ugradr from my BlackBerry Q10.
