A hefty profile
With its 0.31-inch profile (7.8mm), we noticed that the Leap felt thick. However, it had solid build quality.

Running BlackBerry 10 OS
It will run BlackBerry 10.3.1 and have encryption services, built-in malware protection, and options to back-up and wipe the handset.

No QWERTY keyboard
Though it won't have a physical QWERTY keyboard, user's will be able to peck out messages and emails with a digital on-screen keyboard.
The front-facing camera
In addition to a front-facing camera, it will also have an 8-megapixel rear shooter than can shoot 1,080p HD video.
It packs 16GB of storage for firmware and for your movies and music, apps and snaps. However, if you find yourself needing more memory, it does include a microSD card slot on its left edge.
