Sharper BlackBerry 10 L phone images surface

Clear images and video of the rumored BlackBerry 10 L handset arise.

Is this RIM’s new BlackBerry 10 phone?

RIM’s rumored BlackBerry 10 L series device, codenamed London have just come into sharper focus thanks to new images posted by Vietnamese site TinThe and reported by

If these shots and accompanying video are legit, the phone runs RIM’s long awaited BlackBerry 10 software complete with the BlackBerry Hub and Flow interface. From the video and pictures it’s clear that the device is smaller than the Dev Alpha developer prototype yet looks to sport a similar if not the same 4.2-inch size touchscreen. Its square corners have been blunted though, now with rounded edges. The 10 L also appears to be thinner and a little shorter, hopefully without sacrificing features or capability.

Within the video, the presenter is kind enough to provide a full run through of the BlackBerry 10 L’s physical components, going so far as to compare it to the Dev Alpha device and Apple iPhone 5. He even removes the back cover giving us a clear view of the battery, micro SD Card slot, and SIM card.

Honestly I’m thinking this is the real deal, or at least an almost fully baked engineering sample of RIM’s top secret hardware. On the back of the all black phone you can see an identical perforated pattern you may have noticed in RIM’s teaser image it recently released.

Additionally the camera and LED flash is placed in the top left-hand corner, just as how it appears in RIM’s officially sanctioned shot. The phone does look a little thick but hopefully its extra girth will lend the handset a premium feel, typical for old school BlackBerrys. RIM has announced that it will release BlackBerry 10 on January 30th, 2013 and hopefully unveil new hardware then as well.
