New photos of BlackBerry 10 L-Series phone show sleek drool-worthy device

New photos of BlackBerry 10 L-Series phone show sleek drool-worthy device
We've seen some leaked pictures before of the BlackBerry 10 L-Series, but not like these. A series of photographs taken by someone who knows how to use a camera, reveal sharp and clear photos of the all-touch BlackBerry 10 handset. It is unknown if this is the final build, but the texture on the back cover matches perfectly the picture of the phone on the updated landing page for BlackBerry 10.

The design looks sleek and there is not a home button in sight. There appears to be a front-facing shooter and NFC technology is embedded into the rear cover. The battery is 1800mAh although BlackBerry has traditionally been able to squeeze more battery life out of its power cells. And the earphone jack is on top.

This is the clearest photos we've seen yet of the BlackBerry handset that is expected to launch in March, according to a recent report by a brokerage house analyst. So what is the consensus out there? Does RIM have a phone that will turn heads?

that looks more like wireless charging equipment than NFC on the back cover.

that phone looks very nice and elegant. in the first pic it looks like the screen doesnt go all the way to the edge, if it did i think that would make it stand out even more. but this phone has a rectangular shape with rounded corners, will apple sue or be content to let it slide?

No dedicated camera button. I hope the screen is at least 4.5".

"...it should make the people that just need a Blackberry very happy." That is about all that remains of the BlackBerry community at this point.... ;-)

Same here, except I could make do with a 720p display. Also, I hope the battery capacity/ life will be good on this thing and that this phone makes its way to Verizon.

Everything is there, except maybe the 1080p screen. We'll find out for sure on 01/30/2013.

I'm hoping some of those specs change seeing as there's still some time left. Most notably a larger battery capacity. 2000 - 2300 would be nice.

The front looks like a Motorola phone, and the back looks a little iphoneish

design looks amazing..

but the bezel is too big imo :( should be 100% screen on glass ...

That was my first thought. Screen to bezel ratio is kinda eh. But when powered off anyway the phone looks sexy. Ha

this probably uses the bezel for gestures like the playbook did. And its really not that big, it looks to be a smaller overall bezel than something like the Iphone.

uuummmm.... wendy... the BB10 will use pure gestures! and the bezel is necessary... and besides its not that horrible!!! its quite normal ya know!
