Blackberry unleashes 5-inch Z30

Written by Fudzilla staff

Blackberry’s last hoorah?

Blackberry introduced its latest handset yesterday and it looks like a very impressive piece of kit.

The Z30 features a spacious 5-inch AMOLED display, but it’s a 720p job, not 1080p. It is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro with Adreno 320 graphics and it has 2GB of RAM. It also has an impressive 2,880mAh battery, which will be appreciated by road warriors who tend to have a love affair with all things Blackberry. However, many of them won’t appreciate the fact that the battery is not user-replaceable.

It’s quite bit though, 140x72mm, but at least it’s relatively thin at 9.4mm. Of course, 4G support is on board, along with abgn WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. It’s got an 8-megapixel rear camera along with a 2-megapixel front facing unit. The OS has been tweaked as well. Version 10.2 brings a few new features, like message previews on the lock screen.

All in all it looks like a very nice phone indeed. There is still no word on pricing or availability, but it is expected to appear in major markets next week.

The trouble is that it’s just too late, but hopefully Blackberry will probably find a niche to fill, or a strategic investor to prop it up a bit, but sadly it's best days are behind it.
