BlackBerry 10 R-Series Rumors Bring Hardware Specs


Well, the BlackBerry 10 roadmap from last week may have turned out to be a big fake, but that doesn’t mean that all the upcoming devices on it are just as bogus. Take that R10, for instance; there was talk going around last year of an R-series of BlackBerry 10 phones. Now we get some new info on just how that R device could arrive.

Supposedly, the R phone (which we’re guessing would be the R10, though that’s still unconfirmed) is pretty much a lower-end Q10. It could have a non-removable 1800 mAh battery and be constructed from lightweight plastic. The phone would support microSD expansion, and offer 8GB of internal storage. For connectivity, there’d be micro USB but no HDMI-out.

Camera quality is reportedly less than great, especially in low-light environments. The design of the phone should be largely similar to the Q10, with a screen that’s nearly the same size, though the whole thing could be slightly smaller.

All told, this doesn’t have us very excited, but if a more budget-focused phone can help keep BlackBerry in the game, more power to it.
