BlackBerry, even around 5-7 years ago, used to be a force to reckon with, as far as the BlackBerry trend was concerned. Even with the likes of Nokia around, owning a BlackBerry was something of a dream for most. But that was way before the likes of iOS and Android came around.
However, the Canadian phone maker is still keeping itself in the hunt and has now officially outed the brand new BlackBerry Z3 budget phone. And the device will now look to fight it out in the budget category in the market.
However, the BlackBerry Z3 comes in at a very crucial juncture in the Indian smartphone domain. According to International Data Corporation, smartphone sales in India grew almost three-fold to over 44 million in 2013. And in fact, that number was helped by affordable devices made by local firms like Micromax and Karbonn.
Doing a recap on the available specs for the device, the BlackBerry Z3, officially available at Rs. 15,999 and for a lesser Rs. 15,850 via Flipkart, has a 5-inch qHD display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. It is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor, coupled with 1.5GB of RAM.
The Z3 comes with 8GB of on-board storage, which can be later expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card slot. The Z3 runs on the latest version of BlackBerry 10.2.1 OS.
On the camera front, there's a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.1-megapixel front-facing camera. Connectivity options of the smartphone include 3G, GPRS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and more. The makers have added a 2,500mAh battery fitted inside.
