Hint of 1080p resolution device shows up in BlackBerry 10.3
A 1080 x 1920 FHD screen has not yet been seen on a BlackBerry device. Under CEO John Chen, BlackBerry promises to catch-up to the higher spec'd Android and Windows Phone models. And while most top-shelf Android models are still sticking with a 1080p display for now, Oppo has kicked off the QHD generation by launching the 1440 x 2560 resolution Oppo Find 7.
CEO John Chen has alluded to a super spec'd 'Berry with a 64-bit octa-core chip. Originally rumored to be released in 2015, the most recent rumor has the device coming to market by this September. This could be the Windermere, which is believed to use a unique QWERTY keyboard that combines the pressing of keys like on a physical QWERTY, and the slight tapping on keys like on a touchscreen.

I really wish that BlackBerry's flagship (not the QWERTY one) will come quicker, I want to see what they will bring to the table.

The problem of BB is not low screen resolution, but the OS. No 3rd party developer want to support the BB OS 10 because no user using it.
This is like the chicken and egg problem.... No user bring no developer/apps. No developer/apps bring no user.
It seems to me BB were caught in their p@nts down with this situation.

So BlackBerry will produce only two phones this year?
Only Z3 and Q20?
Common, they should have another high end full touch screen model after Z10 and Z30

BB could not afford to have high end specs anymore, since 99% of their user right now were low end user. Those who can afford high end already moved on to Android device.

The question is WHO'S GONNA BUY IT? You need to know there is less than 2 million BB10 user right now. BIG Developer were not interested at all in bringin apps for BB.

BlackBerry? Who gives a $#!T? Maybe I'll check my email on my BB while I watch a movie on my Beta Max or HD DVD, drink my New Coke or Crystal Pepsi, and drive my Pontiac Aztec.

I agree.. They are no longer relevant in the market anymore. Really 1080p screens BlackBerry that is all you have. Android has even doing it for years. Just go away

And here's another troll. The iPhone doesn't offer a 1080p screen, I don't see you bashing Apple.
