BlackBerry’s affordable touch screen phone, the BlackBerry Leap is finally here with a retail price of RM 1,089 (with GST of course).
The BlackBerry Leap is heading for Malaysia and it is now available for pre-orders through 11street. With the retail price tag of RM1,089 (inclusive of GST), the Leap is quite pricey the entry-level specs it offer. According to the listing, the BlackBerry Leap would start shipping on 19th May. As a special promo, they are giving out 11street shopping coupon worth RM150 and the first 100 buyers will also get BlackBerry merchandises including a cap and a leather phone pouch.
Announced during MWC 2015, the Leap is BlackBerry’s new affordable full touch screen phone that’s seen as an upgrade of the BlackBerry Z3. It features a similar sized 5″ HD 720p display and under the hood it runs on a rather dated dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus processor with 2GB of RAM. On-board it has 16GB of storage which is expandable with microSD.
Just when you thought BlackBerry is keeping quiet, its new Leap could be making its way into Malaysia. Announced during MWC 2015, the Leap is an affordable new smart phone that’s a notch above its current BlackBerry Z3.

BlackBerry is trying to make its mark at MWC 2015 by introducing its new BlackBerry Leap. This is yet another affordable BlackBerry full touch screen device targeted at youths and it sits right above the current entry-level BlackBerry Z3. It gets a similar sized 5″ display but pushes a higher HD 720p resolution, which gives it a pixel density of 294ppi.
Under the hood, it gets a dated dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus (Is Qualcomm still making these?) that’s also powering the old BlackBerry Z10 and it is mated to 2GB of RAM. On-board there’s 16GB of storage that can be expanded with microSD up to 128GB.
