With only five days remaining before Research In Motion takes the stage and officially spills all the details regarding BlackBerry 10, it's no surprise that the leaks regarding the hardware are starting to come a lot quicker. The BlackBerry Z10, the new handset that's set to be unveiled on January 30, is seeing the light of day yet again, but this time in a rendered fashion, with multiple angles under the microscope of the consumer's eye.
As far as the visuals go, there's nothing here that we haven't seen before. We're still looking at a smartphone that is rumored to feature a 4.2-inch display, with a resolution pegged at 1280x768. There is supposedly an 8MP camera on the back, with a 2 megapixel shooter on the front. As far as built-in storage goes, it's said that this handset will come pre-loaded with 16GB. Unfortunately, that's all we know about the Z10, even unofficially, at this point. RIM has indeed kept a pretty good lid on the bucket of rumors.
While we inch ever closer to the announcement date, where we should learn when people will be able to buy BlackBerry 10 devices, I'm sure we're going to start seeing even more leaks, coupled with a few more rumors. We should be able to get a grasp as to what kind of internals the new BlackBerry-branded devices will have before the official announcement. Unless RIM can keep those rumor mills squarely focused on images, that is.
It would be nice if the Waterloo-based company could keep some of the excitement saved for their event, truth be told. Then again, most of the excitement for some customers will come from a launch date and pricing.
