Earlier today some photos of the BlackBerry Bold 9790 got leaked out by BGR. This time we see the device side by side next to the latest BlackBerry Bold 9900 so you can see the size difference clearly. As far as specs go, the Bold 9790 is expected to have a 5 megapixel camera, 8GB built in storage, NFC, GPS, WiFi, and a rumored 1.2GHz processor. It’s touchscreen as well just like the Bold 9900, so it won’t be a hard transition into it after having QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen luxury. The Bold 9790 is expected to launch before the end of the year, but you never know.
Something cool to notice is that the Bold 9790 gets the same battery as the Bold 9900/9930 and Torch 9850/9860 – the JM-1. So far battery life is so-so on the Bold 9900 and isn’t nearly as strong as the Bold 9700 series had. Maybe we’ll see it work better with the smaller screen.
On a nother note, it’s scary seeing these new BlackBerry devices launching so late when QNX devices are due in early 2012.
