BlackBerry could be preparing an alternative to its strong-selling Q10
to add to its BlackBerry OS 10-compatible range. Images and leaked specifications suggest that the phone maker is creating another QWERTY keyboard-based smartphone dubbed the R10, one that has appeared in both black and red-colored casings.
The red version, spotted by CrackBerry
and now removed from Instagram
, and the black variant, shown by BBIN.in
, is relatively similar to the Q10, in physical appearances at least. Specifications that have also surfaced claim it has the same 2GB of RAM and 3.1-inch 720x720 display as the Q10, but the R10 has a five-megapixel rear camera, 8GB of storage and a lower-capacity 1800mAh non-removable battery.
It is possible that the R10 is more of an entry-level device compared to the Q10 and Z10
, considering its lesser specifications. Some reports suggest it will be revealed in the third quarter of this year.
