BlackBerry 10 L-Series Handset Gets A Tear-Down


So far this month, we’ve had a pair of opportunities to check out upcoming BlackBerry 10 hardware, and in both cases got a look at RIM’s L-series design, the BB10 launch handset that will arrive without the manufacturer’s iconic hardware keyboard. It seems that we’ve seen all there is to of the phone’s exterior, so let’s dive in a little deeper, with the arrival of the first images of the phone’s internals.

The source of this imagery, which surfaced on a Vietnamese BlackBerry forum, confirms that NFC antenna we suspected from yesterday’s shot of the battery cover. He also mentions an 1800mAh battery, plastic-feeling construction, and dual-core processor. There are supposed to be at least black and white color options available. A burst mode is described for the phone’s camera, as well as video chat capabilities.

The QWERTY BB10 launch model, the N-series, is supposed to arrive within a month of this hardware’s debut. Before that happens, we’re hoping to get a close look at that model, too.
