The feeling of disappointment is taking toll on Canadian-based BlackBerry. For the past few months, we haven't seen any new ‘Wow' handset coming from the stable of once iconic entity.
The failure of BlackBerry 10 OS powered BlackBerry Z10, Q10 and Q5 have forced us to say BlackBerry as a "sunking brand". It's like BlackBerry has lot direction. BlackBerry was in fact even more confident about its updated BlackBerry 10 OS. Unfortunately, BlackBerry has failed to create a movement with BlackBerry 10 OS powered devices. Lack of developer support should be seen as a important factor why BlackBerry's turnaround strategy misfired.
But the makers behind BlackBerry Bold are still optimistic about next wave of handsets to arrive in the coming months. The latest BlackBerry 10 OS powered BB Z30 has a 5-inch HD display, 1.7Ghz dual-core Qualcomm processor , 2GB RAM, 8MP rear facing camera and a 2,880 Li Ion battery.
The internal specifications of the device are not that bad. Nonetheless, BlackBerry has at least tried to be competitive, so that its brand name should be seen and heard in the industry. Now it seems that BlackBerry India is planning to launch the BlackBerry Z30 in India soon. Popular online shopping website Saholic has listed BB Z30 under "Coming Soon "tag.
As per our estimate, the BlackBerry Z30 should be priced around Rs 38,000 in India. Recently, BlackBerry India has slashed the pricing of BlackBerry Z10 in India. Thus it's an indication that BlackBerry is looking to launch BB Z30 in India very soon.
BlackBerry Z30 - Highlighted specifications
The BlackBerry Z30 has a 5-inch Super AMOLED display having resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The phablet is powered by a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with Adreno 32- quad-core graphics.
Moreover, the phablet should be fast and zippy, thanks to 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM, which can be further expanded up to 64GB via a microSD card slot. There's an 8-mega pixel camera with Auto Focus, LED Flash, 5x digital zoom and ability to record videos in Full HD format. Also add a 2-mega pixel front facing camera with 3x digital zoom and 720p HD video recording facility.
The makers have added a 2,880mAh Li Ion non-removable battery. BlackBerry says the battery lasts up to 25 hours. Other connectivity features include: 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, NFC, microHDMI, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and preloaded BlackBerry Apps. The Canadian tech vendor also announced an updated version of BlackBerry 10 OS (v10.2) alongside the much hyped Z30.
In India, BlackBerry Z30 has to face tough competition from Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2, Sony Xperia Z and LG Optimus G Pro. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates.
