In the past few weeks, we have seen a number of leaks that point towards a new Blackberry device dubbed as A10, which is also expected to be the next flagship smartphone for the Canadian manufacturer. We have seen it in leaked videos and a number of images. We have also seen what specifications this device would bring at the table. However, it seems as there might be no A-series phone after all. A new rumor suggests that the upcoming Blackberry flagship would be named Z30 instead of A10.
The last BB10 device was Z10 which was the high-end smartphone by the Canadian manufacturer. The only thing that didn’t make sense when all these A10 rumors started popping up was how can a company choose a totally different name for its flagship smartphone, as the earlier one came under the Z-Series. The name Z30 makes more sense – that it would be the next Z series model, not to mention that they are skipping Z20 or Z15 directly to Z30 etc.
There is a whole discussion taking place in the Crackberry forums where one of the members identified this from a recently leaked firmware that points towards the next device being Z30. Let me just tell you one thing, it’s just a rumor so take it as a rumor. No matter what it’s called, Z30 or A10 or Z50, it would only be true when it’s announced by Blackberry.
The so called A10 or Z30 – whatever it will be named – is expected to feature a 5-inch display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, dual-core 1.7GHz processor with 2GB RAM. To me, these specifications doesn’t look attractive at all considering the fact that majority of flagships from other manufacturers come with a quad-core processor with high-end specifications. If these are the original specifications, there is a very high probability that the company will keep following the downward trend in terms of sales. What do you think?
