The BlackBerry Storm 2 will feature a 3.2 megapixel camera and HSDPA support for fast downloads, it has been reported.
Specifications for the new mobile phone have been publicised by Boy Genius, which claims to have uncovered some “new info” about the handset but has yet to disclose its source.
According to the technology site, the phone will also be home to a 360×480 capacitive touchscreen and will run on OS version 5.0.
The mobile is expected to go on sale in the US in September on the Verizon network. However, a UK launch date and network carrier has yet to be confirmed.
BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion’s other key handset launch for this year is the much-touted BlackBerry 9360 Tour, which features a candybar form factor and a full slide-out Qwerty keyboard.
Other standout specifications of the BlackBerry Tour include 3G support and the option to use the mobile phone as a mobile broadband dongle by harnessing its tethering function.
Meanwhile, last month the BlackBerry Curve 8900 arrived on Orange on a pay as you go plan, marking the increasing appeal of BlackBerry mobile phones outside their core market of business users.
