We have been hearing about the BlackBerry Jakarta for a while now. The handset is said to be the first of many devices to be made under the BlackBerry-Foxconn banner and is expected to be a budget device aimed at emerging markets, although how exactly it will look like remains to be seen, but what we do know is that it will not feature BlackBerry’s trademark physical QWERTY keyboard, but rather a full touchscreen which is surprising, a good surprise to be honest. That being said, that folks at N4BB have managed to get their hands on what is allegedly the rendering of the BlackBerry Jakarta, which might be known as the BlackBerry Z3 commercially.
As you can seen from the rendering above, the design of the handset looks pretty straightforward and while we cannot confirm the specs of the BlackBerry Z3, we can tell based on its render that it will sport a front-facing and back-facing camera with what appears to be an LED flash. It will also most likely run on the latest version of BlackBerry 10, which at the moment is the recently released BlackBerry 10.2.1. There’s no telling if this is the real deal, but according to the rumors, BlackBerry is expected to make an announcement at MWC 2014, so if you’d like to learn more about the Jakarta/Z3, be sure to check back with us then for the details. In the meantime what do you guys think of the phone? Pretty nicely designed for a supposed budget device, don’t you think?
