Its been long since mobile maker BlackBerry had a hit device to its credit for the longest time possible. The company's last flagship handset, the Z30, is also struggling to place a strong foothold in the competitive smartphone market, at least, in terms of sales. But looks like the company is planning a solid phone to overcome the losses and surpass its rivals.
No, we are not talking about BlackBerry Passport, which is said to release in September 2014. Rather, the talk is about the successor of BlackBerry Z30. Yes, you heard that right!
From some trusted company sources GizBot has learnt that the ailing firm is prepping to introduce a big (phablet) all-touch device by March 2015. They are calling it BlackBerry Z50 and the codename for the smartphone is "Manitoba."
The highlight part is that this phone will come incorporating a big 8GB RAM and would feature more than 5-inch (probably 6-inch) Full HD display. Further, the source also confirmed that BlackBerry Manitoba will run the latest BlackBerry 10 OS and will come powered by a quad core processor.
Well, this is not the first time we've heard about the "Manitoba". The BlackBerry-made handset had been in the news as early as January 2014. In fact, last month, a German-based website BB10QNX.de reported that the sequel to the BlackBerry Z30 will come with 8GB of RAM, alongside a 64-bit quad-core processor and more.
So far no more details around the Z50 (Manitoba) have been shared with us. Nonetheless, we promise more exciting inside scoops in respect to the BlackBerry Manitoba with our readers shortly.
