BlackBerry has been getting some buzz for quite some time after its latest flagship smartphone, the BlackBerry KEYone, was launch at the 2017 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. But with all the rave that it received from the launch, various reports said that the company has ordered a new low-end device that would be manufactured to the Indonesian market.

There are new live photos of an unnamed low to mid-end BlackBerry device that leaked on the internet. GSM Arena has reported that the lower end device has been ordered by BlackBerry from a company based in Indonesia named PT BB Merah Putih.

Apparently, the company has been giving all the leeway to build and design new BlackBerry smartphones in a specific market. In a tweet by The Android Soul, the photos of BlackBerry with the model number BBC100-1 were posted.

A similar update reported by CrackBerry was posted, revealing that the new low-end BlackBerry smartphone was already certified in Indonesia and has been in development for quite some time now. There is still no suggestion for now if the new alleged device would be making its away abroad. There are no reports yet if there would be an international version.

The BlackBerry BBC100-1's specs will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset running at 1.4 GHz. It would be paired with a 4G of RAM, a surprisingly large RAM for this model.

It would also come up with a 5.5-inch 720p display and 32 GB of internal memory storage. There would be an ample 3,000 mAh battery that would be more than enough given its low-resolution display.

It is also suggested that the new BlackBerry device would be the first of many low to mid-end Blackberry smartphones that will be released this year. It has to be noted though that Blackberry is already offering the TCL-built DTEK50 and DTEK60 smartphones to other markets. This indicates that the model BBC100-1 might for Indonesia or Asia only.
