The BlackBerry 10 leaks are coming thick and fast and this time we have something rather special for you. Previously, we have given you picture reveals of three upcoming BlackBerry 10 handsets, but now we have something much better – a detailed video showing off the BlackBerry X10, one of the touchscreen-based BB10 models that will be announced on January 30 and released over the next couple of months.
If you wanted a chance to get a clear look at the fancy new BlackBerry 10 interface, this is definitely the moment as the video gives us a detailed look at how the phone handles the new software, despite being an early pre-production unit with a beta version of BlackBerry 10.
It still looks fantastic though and BlackBerry fans are certainly in for a treat come January 30. As a reminder of some of the features that the BlackBerry Z10 will bring, you’ll get a 4.2-inch 1280×768 display, 2GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera, 16GB of onboard storage and NFC capabilities.
There’s room to expand memory via MicroSD card, but it is a little disappointing to see that there’s only a 1.5Ghz dual-core processor on board, not a quad-core chip that many top of the range Android phones are equipped with right now. Hopefully this is an area which RIM will improve on once BlackBerry 10 progresses throughout the year, but there’s no doubt that a quad-core chip would have been perfect out of the box.
If you watch the whole 7 minutes of footage, you’ll get a glimpse how multitasking works on BlackBerry 10 but it’s by no means perfect remember since the software is only a test version. It’s still an excellent preview though considering RIM has yet to officially announce any of the three handsets that have been leaked so far as the Lisbon, Z10 and London.
Take a look at the clip below, with an Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonator, and let us know what you think of the Z10. Is it already looking like a device you would buy ahead of say, the Samsung Galaxy S4?
