BlackBerry has launched the Z30 for the Indian market at Rs. 39,990. The smartphone will be available on retail shelves starting next week.
BlackBerry Z30 is the
biggest smartphone in BlackBerry's portfolio and can be called the first
phablet from the Canadian manufacturer. It comes
with a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with 720x1280 pixel resolution,
translating to a pixel density of 294ppi. It is powered by a 1.7GHz
dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with Adreno 320 GPU.
BlackBerry has included 2GB of RAM onboard the Z30, apart from 16GB of inbuilt storage, which can be further expanded via microSD card (up to
64GB). The BlackBerry Z30 sports an
8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
new phablet runs BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2, which includes
refinements and new features when compared to the BlackBerry Z10 that
was launched earlier this year. The Z30 includes a 2880mAh battery, which the
company claims can deliver up to 25 hours of talktime - there is no
word on standby time.
The BlackBerry Z30 features four stereo
speakers to provide 'BlackBerry Natural Sound' and also comes with BlackBerry
Paratek Antennae that is claimed to deliver faster data transfers.
BlackBerry Z30 was unveiled globally in September, when BlackBerry also announced a price cut for company's former flagship, the Z10, which was said to be a
limited period festival offer.
Previously, BlackBerry Z30's Canada
pricing was revealed
to be $699 without contract which translated to Rs. 43,000
