Several leaks have indicated that BlackBerry is working on a followup to the Z10, thought to be called the A10, but CrackBerry believes the new device will be known as the Z30 instead. The site has served up a picture of BlackBerry’s latest handset next to other BB OS 10 devices, including the Z10 and Q5, giving us a good size comparison in the process.
Otherwise, this looks to be the same handset that we’ve seen in several leaked pictures already. The only notable difference in terms of software seems to be the number of apps displayed on that larger screen. The BlackBerry Z10 currently displays four rows of apps in a grid, whereas the Z30 looks to increase that to five.
Specifications for the Z30 are said to include a 5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.7Ghz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and LTE connectivity along with a 2,800mAh battery. The phone will reportedly ship with the latest version of BlackBerry OS, with CNET previously suggesting that the handset will be released in the United States around November. It’s not yet clear, however, if BlackBerry intends to bring the phone to Europe.
