Rumors are already rife regarding RIM's soon-to-be-unveiled BlackBerry 10-powered 'London' smartphone, powered by the new BB10 OS and also that the series will be released in two variants including BlackBerry 10 L-Series and N-Series.
Following the image leak of a N series handset a few days back, the Canada based handset maker RIM is again in talks among the tech gossipers as another image of the L series smartphone based on BB10 OS has been leaked.
The latest image leak reveals that the handset will have a removable back cover and a NFC module, similar to the Android smartphones of today. Unfortunately, all the image leaks show the serial numbers, which suggest that they are under testing and not the final versions that are ready to launch.
As per a report from Ubergizmo, after the image leak comes the image render, which is self-made by a BlackBerry fan @Gustavitt. This render looks like it is the complete version of the L series smartphone. Of course, it is created on the lines of the leaked images.
From the earlier rumors and reports, the L-series smartphone will have a 4.3 inch display with 1280 x 768 pixel resolution, dual core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, micro SD card slot supporting up to 32GB expandable memory, 8MP rear camera, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and NFC.
Talking about the release date of the new offerings, the CEO of Research in Motion (RIM), Thorsten Heins revealed that BlackBerry 10 will be released in the later half of 2012. And, according to the past reports, the L series smartphones will be released in October while the N series handsets will be released in Q1 2013.
