BlackBerry has unveiled a new touchscreen handset which is set to roll-out to UK networks from next week.
Described as the firm’s “biggest, fastest and most advanced smartphone” the new BlackBerry Z30 offers a 5” AMOLED display and the latest version of the Blackberry 10 operating system.
It also includes a 2880 mAh battery, the largest battery ever built into a BlackBerry smartphone, which the company claims will give up to 25 hours of “mixed use”.
There’s also a 1.7 GHz processor with quadcore graphics and stereo speakers.
“The new BlackBerry Z30 smartphone builds on the solid foundation and engaging user experience of the BlackBerry 10 platform with features like the powerful BlackBerry Hub, its exceptional touchscreen keyboard and industry leading browser,” said Carlo Chiarello, Executive Vice President for Products at BlackBerry.
“The smartphone rounds out the BlackBerry 10 portfolio and is designed for people looking for a smartphone that excels at communications, messaging and productivity. Having apps like the full Documents To Go suite that comes preinstalled, together with its 5” touch display, the BlackBerry Z30 smartphone gives you a best in class productivity experience on the go.”
