News & Reviews: BlackBerry Aristo
Last Updated: Aug 28, 2013
The BlackBerry Z30 remains the company's last big device to appear and may or may not be the saviour that BlackBerry are hoping it will be. The BlackBerry Z30 or formerly known as the Aristo recently made an appearance in a video, showing it off complete with what appears to be a kevlar backside. The video indicates that we may soon see the BlackBerry Z30 being announced or launched soon. Other tech specs and features for the Z30 include:
- 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
- 5-inch display (720 x 1280 pixels, 296ppi)
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB storage + up to 64GB microSD (hot swappable)
- 8MP rear camera + 2MP front camera
- 2800 mAh battery
- BlackBerry 10.2

While we've been wondering about the BlackBerry Aristo's name, apparently some new renders of the upcoming A10 or Z30 have appeared, along with renders of what could be the device in between the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Z30. Apparently this new device will be called the BlackBerry Z15 and go for a touchscreen + QWERTY keyboard slider form factor. While we're still wondering why it would be called the Z15 and not the Z20, the renders do appear to be pretty high quality, so it could be an actual device this time around. No other tech specs, pricing or release dates were available but with BlackBerry's decline weighing in the horizon the two devices should make an launch appearance soon, probably within 2013.

For quite some time now we've been watching renders of "the most powerful BlackBerry device ever" and seen the numerous spec leaks of what we've all come to know as the BlackBerry Aristo A10. However, new rumours are about that it may not actually be called that in the end as so far BlackBerry only have two product lines under the names of 'Q' for the devices with physical QWERTY keyboards and 'Z' for those with touch screens. Rather than be called the A10, which designates it as a completely different product some industry watchers are expecting it to be called the BlackBerry Z30. For some, this makes more sense as the Aristo is a larger touch screen device in the same line as theBlackBerry Z10. However, this still doesn't explain why it would be Z30 and not Z20 as there is still no Z20 device just yet.
