BlackBerry A10 surfaces in Vietnam, touts large 2800mAh battery
The yet to be launched BlackBerry A10 has been given a full video overview by Vietnamese site Tinhte.vn. The video shows that the device adopts some of the design cues from the Z10 including locating a micro USB port and micro HDMI port to the left side of the device. The rear cover replete with AT&T branding gets taken off to reveal a large 2800mAh battery to help give the 5-inch 720p AMOLED display the power it needs to get through a working day.
Previous leaks have indicated that the device will be powered by a Snapdragon dual-core CPU, however an apparent specification sheet leak indicates that it will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro clocked at 1.7GHz. Although the device is sports the latest 10.2 build of the BlackBerry OS, the video does not appear to show any obvious changes to the interface or any new standard applications. It will sport an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front camera, while connectivity includes NFC, DLNA, Wi-Fi 802.11n and 4G LTE.
Launch dates have yet to surface, although the pace and nature of the leaks suggest that it will make an official appearance in the coming weeks. [via Phones Review]
