BlackBerry R10 to last longer, spotted with a larger, 2180mAh battery

The BlackBerry R10 has not even become official yet, but it’s already leaked out multiple times and basically all of its specs have been revealed. Now, one more piece of the puzzle has been confirmed and that’s its massive 2180mAh battery that should allow it to last a couple of days on a single charge.

That’s actually a change from earlier rumors for the BlackBerry R10. Early prototypes were said to have a non user removable 1800mAh battery, and now while it is still not easy for users to remove the battery, its actual capacity turns out to be larger.

This huge battery for its screen size should give the R10 an edge over the BlackBerry Q10 in terms of battery longevity. Here are the rest of the specs of the R10 as per earlier leaks:

  • 3.1-inch display, 720 x 720 resolution
  • 5MP rear camera, front camera
  • Support to shoot up to 2560 x 1920 resolution photos
  • 2G of RAM
  • 8G internal storage

Battery to last longer. The battery will outlast the company. Blackberry is dead

Disagree. Don't call it a comeback quite yet, but BB is doing quite well with its 2 new devices, especially in the UK.

It is done on purpose by bb they're giving each store an inconsiderable amount of stock in order to make it look as if it was selling well when in reality it's not.

Battery to last longer. The battery will boost the company. BlackBerry is still alive.

absolute disagree with your comment. Maybe u've never gotten a feeling in-hand a product of BB? This's a differently with the rest, that's what exactly keep BB alive till now. the real feeling when u use a real mobiphone. Sr i'm not a BBfan, i'm using HTC with Android but BB OS is never die.

2 grams of ram and 8 grams of storage? sorry to troll but please edit the article and display the proper units.

Actually, you're wrong. While GB is standard for gigabyte, G is also an accepted abbreviation. Grams is g or gr. The capitalization or lack thereof makes a big difference. http://englishplus.com/grammar/00000058.htm

They will never ever regain the sales in the United States. People have moved on to much superior platforms.

The only superior os right now is android. ios only strong point is app but is a outdated os today in my opinion bb 10 is more superior than ios and only time will tell but if BB keep doing what they doing now they will take third placed

the s**t that comes out of your mouth.... makes stupid people seem smart! There are millions of people still using old BB devices 2 + years old. If BB was so dead why are there still so many in use? And keep in mind most of these are people who have jobs that are good enough to afford any phone they want, but they still stick to BB. Thats because they are not dead, and stop saying they are dead. When they go Bankrupt, maybe then you can say they are dead. But in the mean time STFU about whos dead and whos not. You act like Lazardis and Balsille pulled a train on your mom and now you hate the company.

I dont know, but i bet he would beat your ass just cause... lets get something straight here. This is a tech site. Not consumer reports. I have used BB, iOS, WP, and Android. Guess what my phone of preference is? None. They all work. They all make calls. They all stream radio. They all have a calendar. They all handle email just fine. Work phone is ios personal is z10 tablet is android Gave my ipad to my mom Sold my lumia 920 for a Note Had a Galaxy Nexus Had a TITAN1 and TITAN2 Had both BB Storms Recently sold my note for the z10 I think im overly qualified on what works, they all do. I dont have anyone to impress with any phone/tablet and those who rely on such things to impress are just plain retarded. If you didnt think you had to impress people, your opinion on what sucks and what doesnt would never leave your mouth.

You sold your note for the Z10. Yeah you really know what your talking about your fool!

Yep I did. I got tired of lag, waiting for ATT to update to JB while 2 year old hardware was already updated, which they finally did, and home screen lag was gone, but it didnt speed up anything else. I do know what im talking about, "your fool!" Nice grammar chief.

Another day another berry. Useless though, It looks as if it was tailored for toddlers. Blackberry has less than a quarter slice of pie in The United States Of America and doesn't stand a chance of regaining sales

I wonder why are you so bitter about blackberry... If you where funny it could be forgiven but since you're not it's just sad. And by the way, I would love to check the phones of people that call this R10 ugly, really, I'm quite sure I would have a good laugh.

The R10 is not ugly for a low end QWERTY keyboard smartphone. Those people who said the R10 is ugly because they have a bad taste.

Nikolas, do you know what is a low end? So, you want a low end smartphone with unibody design?

R10 is such a FUGLY phone why aint you all realize ? just look at the keyboard alone makes me gag. it is reminiscent of the HTC ChaCha BB will be f*cked up if this phone sells for $300 or more

I don't understand why people want Blackberry to fail. Once they're gone, other companies don't need to innovate as much due to less competition.

15. apiskula

Posts: 578; Member since: Jan 25, 2013

Because they do not innovate anything

wait what ? blackberry doesn't inovate anything bro, tell me one thing that blackberry has invented / re-invented / game-changing ? nothing

I think they've changed something very personal to you. Your attitude. Unless you're always immature and hate all things you don't agree with. Also, compare phones to cars. What car are you driving? Are you screaming and putting down ALL the other cars on the road? Probably not. Stop being a chickens**t hater and man-up or shut up. If you don't like something, so be it. If BB has done something to you, personally, take it to a lawyer. BB will survive in the US of A because we should support our neighbors. Or are you thriving on a phone owned by the asian corps? You decide lil man if you're going to continue your pointless tirade for a monopoly or shut up and troll somewhere else.

Does that mean we should support Apple as well since it is an american company? I'm not trolling at all... Every time i say something it is always preceded by a fact No i dont hate all the things i don't agree with. I only hate bb and that's about it, i neither hate wp nor apple.
