BlackBerry announces new Z30 smartphone with 5-inch screen

BlackBerry has announced a new handset that’s equipped with the company’s biggest-ever smartphone screen.

The BlackBerry Z30 has a 5-inch AMOLED display and runs version 10.2 of the BlackBerry 10 OS on a 1.7GHz processor. Other notable features include stereo speakers, a 2880mAh battery, a quad-core graphic chip and a ‘Paratek’ antenna for better connections in low signal areas.

Carlo Chiarello, Executive Vice President for Products at BlackBerry, said “The new BlackBerry Z30 smartphone builds on the solid foundation and engaging user experience of the BlackBerry 10 platform with features like the powerful BlackBerry Hub, its exceptional touchscreen keyboard and industry leading browser. The smartphone rounds out the BlackBerry 10 portfolio and is designed for people looking for a smartphone that excels at communications, messaging and productivity. Having apps like the full Documents To Go suite that comes preinstalled, together with its 5” touch display, the BlackBerry Z30 smartphone gives you a best in class productivity experience on the go.”

UK availability is expected from next week.

Version 10.2 of the BlackBerry OS is expected to be available for the company’s other compatible handsets - the BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Q10 and BlackBerry Q5 smartphones - from mid-October.
