Little new is revealed about the next-gen Bold, but BGR claims that it “most certainly looks better in person compared to the product renders”. Considering how good those renders looked, we’re already getting excited.
They also reveal that the Blackberry Bold Touch is an “extremely solid” device, packing a “very spacious” QWERTY keyboard alongside a “very responsive” 2.8-inch touchscreen. The forthcoming Blackberry will also arrive housing a brand-new battery from RIM, which we hope has been boosted to cope with the addition of a capacious display.
According to previous rumours, the Blackberry Bold Touch 9330 will arrive running Blackberry OS 6.1, offering a touch-friendly UI and an all-new Blackberry PIN login. The handset is also likely to feature a 5 megapixel camera with HD video capture, HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, NFC smarts and 8GB of internal storage, expandable to 32GB.
The sequel to the Blackberry Bold 9700 is expected to be unveiled at RIM’s Blackberry World conference in May, with a June/July release to follow. It’s pricing and network support however, is still to be confirmed.
