BlackBerry has been in the news quite a lot today, primarily because of their Live 2013 conference where they made a number of interesting announcements. This story, however, is about a rumored variant of the BlackBerry Z10 that has a 5 inch display and is currently being tested by the company in Canada. It is said to replace the current Z10 as BlackBerry’s flagship high-end BB10 smartphone.
Rumor has it that the display proportions will be similar to that of Samsung Galaxy S4. If true, this would certainly mean that BlackBerry wants to present a challenge to the likes of S4 and HTC One, though only upping the display won’t be enough. These smartphones have a far better hardware package that the Z10’s dualcore processor with 2GB of RAM can’t match. So it is being said that the new Z10 will not only have a bigger display and a bigger battery, it may also have a better processor such as the Snapdragon 600 or the currently unreleased Snapdragon 800 by Qualcomm. The device is reportedly going to be released in the next couple of months.
