John Chen’s foot print on BlackBerry is beginning to show itself, dedicated fans of the brand now have a handful of products with a decent bragging right.
BlackBerry Classic has been talked about on the internet; it is even widely regarded as the phone with the best QWERTY. BlackBerry is really enjoying the recent fame and I’m sure they wouldn’t want it to slip.
The company has teased a new BlackBerry with a codename “Rio,” some believe the device would finally be called Z50. Judging by the specs below, it wouldn’t make any sense to think Z50 fits nicely into the phone. Z5 would make more sense and does not destroy the number scheme. The reason of this is because; the new all-touch device isn’t more powerful than the Z30, but slightly more powerful than the Z3.
It is basically the bridge between BlackBerry Z3 and BlackBerry Z30. Why not name it BlackBerry Z5 afterall? Your guess is as good as mine.
|Display||5” (1280 x 720)|
|Processor||Dual Core 1.5 GHz|
|OS||BlackBerry OS 10.3|
|Memory||2 GB RAM + 8 GB Internal memory, microSD Slot (up to 32 GB)|
|Camera||Primary (Rear): 8.0 MP, (Front): 2 MP (FHD), LED Flash|
I was disappointed with what’s on table, however. It’s a shame BlackBerry Z30 is still the most powerful all-touch BlackBerry device, despite being out in the wild for long.
An all-touch BlackBerry device in the like of the Passport would definitely be jaw-breaking. It’s one step at a time, and I do understand BlackBerry’s new business model. There are simply giving people a choice which is pretty much a step in the right direction.
The highlight of BlackBerry Rio would be the price. There is no official word yet on pricing but anything above $300 would be a slap on the face.
