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?

this design is good but does not stand out like One S or Nexus 4. It now all depends on specs and software.

"It now all depends on specs and software." Software was the reason for the delay to March, 2013. Spec-wise, I think the BB10 devices are 2012-era (dual core, maybe 720p display). I hope RIM gets it right, 'cause I don't think they get a second chance if they biff this one. The problem is that Android flagship phones are setting expectations for 2013 of quad cores, 2 Gb of RAM, 5 inch 1080p display, 13 Mp+BSI sensor cameras and LTE.

The only OS winning the plain specs race is Android.

Wow - another example of putting out year-old technology. In 2014 S4 Pro will be replaced by something newer and more capable. The playbook of releasing year-old technology as 'new' has already been discredited. I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same at RIM.

Premium enough. But consider having 1080p, 1900MaH in the picture shown, is it enough?

Yep.. The back looks grippy and stylish which is good. I looks like a mini Playbook, especially with those side volume buttons. I'm liking what I see so far.. Now, RIM has to price this one right..

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.

if it had a 1080 screen, at least 8 mp camera and 2 mp front facing camera, LTE , worldwide gsm capability i might consider getting it i always liked bb.

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.

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