BlackBerry Leap has the highest standard of security
The BlackBerry Leap is powered by the latest 10.3.1 operating system, and sports a brilliant edge-to-edge five-inch HD display. The smartphone’s battery lasts more than 24 hours of heavy use.
One of the primary features of the BlackBerry Leap is high security to maintain privacy. According to BlackBerry, the smartphone is designed with the highest standard of security. It includes encryption, built-in malware protection and back-up as well as wipe & restore to help users secure their data and protect them from cyberattacks.
The BlackBerry Leap touchscreen keyboard allows users to type faster and more accurately as it learns their writing style. It is equipped with superior error correction, multi-language support and customized adaption and flow.
In addition, the Blackberry Leap allows users to access their content and messaging from other devices such as a computer or tablet using BlackBerry Blend. The feature is compatible with Mac OS X 10.7+, Windows 7+ and Android tablets running Android 4.4+ via cellular, USB or Wi-Fi connections.
In addition, the BlackBerry Leap is integrated with BlackBerry Assistant. It allows users to use voice and text commands to manage their work and personal email, contacts, calendar and other native BlackBerry 10 applications.
The BlackBerry Assistant is the first smartphone assistant available in the market with the ability to access both personal and work content within the user’s work perimeter.
According to the BlackBerry, its digital assistant intelligently determines how to respond to users based on how they interact with it. It will respond silently if the user types.
It speaks back when the user talks to it. When a user activates the digital assistant using Bluetooth, it speaks back with additional context as it assumes that he or she may not have access to the screen.
