BlackBerry R10 Goes Up Against Q10 in New Leaked Pics

Last week brought us a fresh look at a not-yet-announced BlackBerry 10 model, the hardware QWERTY-packing R10. This wasn’t the first time we saw that guy pop up, and from what we know about it, it was sounding like it could be a future budget-priced alternative to the higher-end Q10. Just what kind of cuts could BlackBerry make to bring the price down? We get somewhat of an idea today, upon a leak delivering not just some new BlackBerry R10 pics next to a Q10, but a run-down on the model’s specs.

Make no mistake, even if the R10 is to be a cheaper option than the Q10, it could still have some higher-end specs. Look for it to keep the Q10’s 2GB of RAM, for example. It should also have the same 720 x 720 resolution, though given what we’ve heard of BlackBerry’s plans for its lineup, that’s not really surprising.

Still, the R10 takes a few hits; it could have only a five-megapixel main camera, versus the Q10’s eight, max-out its internal storage at 8GB, and get a smaller 1800mAh battery that doesn’t appear to be removable. As you can see from the image above, it also looks much more plasticy than the Q10, and isn’t quite so compact.
