On Wednesday, we told you about a BlackBerry road map that had leaked. Actually, considering that the road map consisted of just two phones, it wasn't much of a map after all. One of the two handsets, the BlackBerry 9720, is a BlackBerry OS 7 powered device for emerging markets. The more intriguing model is the one that BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins says gets him excited. That model is the BlackBerry A10 Aristo.

The model is supposed to be the most powerful 'Berry ever, but still will only feature a dual-core processor. And the resolution of the 5 inch Super AMOLED screen is pegged by those in the know as being 720 x 1280 compared to the 1080 x 1920 seen on many high end Android models. This is going to result in a pixel density well below the industry leading 468ppi pixel density seen on the HTC One. As we noted yesterday, BlackBerry can't seem to shake the habit of offering devices with specs that trail behind iOS and Android models.

Meanwhile, a picture of the BlackBerry A10 Aristo has leaked and the picture shows a more rounded handset than the BlackBerry Z10. Speculation calls for a back cover that is similar to the one on the BlackBerry Q10 with its weaved glass. The A10 is supposedly going to launch in November and Sprint is rumored to be one of the U.S. carriers involved.

If you're interested in seeing a picture of what is believed to be the phone that puts an extra spring in Thorsten Heins' step, check out the slideshow below.
