New reports, courtesy of CNET, of the next-generation BlackBerry have rushed online today. The report indicates that BlackBerry will be releasing a “higher-quality design” device called the A10. This will be their new flagship BlackBerry 10 smartphone and will sport an all-touchscreen display. CNET noted that “the A10 will occupy the highest tier, moving the Z10 and keyboard-equipped Q10 to the midtier.”
The A10, previously rumoured to have the code name of Aritso, is targeting “to keep up with the likes of the next iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S4.” This is expected to hit the market in November. Rumoured specs of the A10 are that it’ll come with a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display (1080×1920 resolution), 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm processor, 3000mAh battery, and 2GB RAM.
BlackBerry declined to comment on the rumour, but Thorsten Heins BlackBerry’s CEO previously stated that “There’s one new product I’m really excited about, but I can’t really share it… It takes BlackBerry 10 to another level in terms of the user experience.”
