Specifications concerning the upcoming BlackBerry 10 powered 'London' smartphone are apparently revealed on the BlackBerry news site N4BB.  

Soon to be unveiled in August, the new line of the all-touch smartphones branded as L-Series are tipped to feature a higher screen resolution than that of Apple's own iPhone 4S. However it may be difficult to notice the difference. The L-Series all-touch handset, which is expected to measure 55mm in width, is said to come with a 768×1280 screen resolution which would either be OLED or an LCD display based on production, with 356 ppi pixel density. The iPhone 4S, in comparison, measures 58.6 mm in width, and sports a 640 x 960 pixels resolution screen with 330 pp pixel density.

Moreover, the QWERTY based BlackBerry N-Series is going to feature 720×720 resolution display with 330 ppi pixel density support that's placed between 52 - 53mm width.

Earlier, Thorsten Heins, CEO of Research in Motion (RIM), had informed that BlackBerry 10 will be released by the 'later half of 2012.' The Blackberry maker will reportedly unveil the device around mid-August whereas the handset is projected to be released in the first half of October. Meanwhile, Blackberry's N-series which includes the physical QWERTY keyboard is reportedly being prepped for a Q1 2013 release.

Previous reports concerning leaked images suggested that the device looked thinner than iPhone 4S, which features a display close to 4.3-inch. It was also reported that RIM is believed to be testing TI OMAP5 and Qualcomm processors both of which are going to come with 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The other rumored specifications, BlackBerry London smartphone may include are 1 GB RAM, internal storage expandable up to 32 GB via microSD card, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, and Wi-Fi range 2.4 GHZ b/g/n - 5GHz a/n.

Just like most Android and iPhone devices, the anticipated BlackBerry 10 is expected to offer multimedia, Internet browsing and apps experience for which consumers have voiced a strong demand these days.
