BlackBerry Z3 'Jakarta' rumoured to be priced under Rs 13,000

BlackBerry could launch a new smartphone at the MCW, called the Z3 and the device is likely to be a low budget one.

BlackBerry could launch a new smartphone at the MWC, dubbed the Z3 and the device is likely to be a mid-ranger one unlike the Z30 and the Z10, says a new report in BBIN.


According to the report, the Z3 smartphone which is being manufactured along with Foxconn could be priced between Rs 10,000-Rs 13,000. The smartphone will have a 5-inch display with a qHD resolution (540x960 pixels), a 5-megapixel primary camera and a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. Internal storage s expected to be 8GB (no word about a microSD card slot) and the RAM is said to be 1 GB.


More leaks of the smartphone's specifications have have come from, which says that the Z3 will have a 1.1 megapixel front camera with 3x digital zoom. The Z3 will run BlackBerry 10 OS and could be the first smartphone of its kind from BlackBerry priced at a considerably lower price.


However, even with a rumoured price tag of under Rs 15,000, the Z3 doesn't really pack the power that many have come to expect from low-cost smartphones. Given the number of Android devices with quad-core and 13 megapixel cameras that are available in the market in this price range, the Z3 is likely to face some tough competition when launched.
