There’s some good news following the terrible situation that Blackberry is experiencing right now. The company has been struggling to reach its sales rate that it will come to a point that it will be laying-off some of its workers before the year ends.
However, it doesn’t mean that this is the end for the once successful company. Blackberry has just revealed its newest flagship that will compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note Series and the recently launched iPhone 5S.
The Blackberry Z30 used to be known as the Blackberry A10 when it wasn’t released yet. It was named as the A10 before when the company was still in the middle of finalizing the specifications and features of the smartphone.
Design, Build and Specifications
It’s the first time that Blackberry is releasing a smartphone model that has a wider screen. It’s the first five-inch screen that the company is releasing to its consumers. It’s obvious that the company is trying to compete and catch the attention of the existing users of Samsung Galaxy and iPhone devices.
The Blackberry Z30 is so different from the previous Blackberry handsets that were released during the first quarter of this year. Blackberry is now trying to reach a bigger market that is being dominated by the Android King, which is Samsung Electronics.
This is probably the reason why the new Blackberry Z30 is also sporting a Super AMOLED screen display, which is something that the Samsung handsets already have. It’s powered by a quad-core processor with a power of 1.7 GHz. It’s also the first time that Blackberry is confidently investing a battery with lots of power in a single handset.
The Z30 is equipped with a battery of 2,880 mAh battery power. The company is confident that it will make the handset last more than 24 hours even if all of the applications are used at the same time.
It Comes With Updated Software
We are all hoping that Blackberry will soon venture in partnering with Google’s Android operating system. But, it seems to be a bad idea as it will literally kill the Blackberry operating system.
The company stays firm in making its own operating system stronger. The Z30 is running the latest system, which is the Blackberry 10.2. There are also lots of applications that have been updated in this system. The Blackberry Messenger has improved and the notifications are a lot easier to access this time.
Some of the icons are also placed in the lock screen area so that the users will not have a hard time in accessing the notifications and reminders.
The Blackberry Z30 is set to be released come October 2013. It’s expected to be made available starting the middle of the said month. However, there are no reports as to when it will be released in the United States. But, it is going to be launched first in the Middle East and the United Kingdom. Its hometown, Canada will also soon experience the power and beauty of the Blackberry Z30.
