It looks like the entry-level BlackBerry Z3 might not be an Indonesia-exclusive after all. New reports have started pointing fingers towards the fact that it could land in other emerging markets as well, especially India and Malaysia, long considered two of the company’s strong grounds.
Phone Arena has started speculating this possibility thanks to a few hints it has received recently. A safety guide for the device has been spotted on BlackBerry’s Indian website which means some preparations are definitely underway on this side of the subcontinent.
As for Malaysia, a report has revealed that the country’s SIRIM database (certification department of the nation) has seen the Z3 already. Brightstar which is a long-time partner of BlackBerry’s will be distributing the upcoming handset in the Asian country.
Here’s a look at the specs of the BlackBerry Z3:
– 5-inch qHD display
– BlackBerry 10 OS
– 1.2GHz dual core Qualcomm MSM8230 SoC
– 5MP and 1.1MP cameras
– 1.5GB of RAM
– 8GB storage, 32GB expandability
– 2500mAh battery
It bears a 5-inch display with a pixel density of 220ppi which means its resolution is set at 540 x 960 pixels. A 1.2GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor provides it with the necessary steam required to handle its operations. Furthermore, 1.5GB worth of RAM and 8GB of storage also find their way into the phone, aside from a micrSD card slot with support for up to 32GB of added space.
A 5MP rear camera supporting full HD video capture has been granted to the Z3. This BB 10-equipped gadget is powered by a 2500mAh battery.
Although we now know that the BlackBerry Z3 will be making its way into India and Malaysia, its pricing is an important factor due to the immense competition in the entry-level department.
