BlackBerry Z3 could be first device from partnership with Foxconn
The first image of what could be BlackBerry's next smartphone has reportedly leaked. The render for the codenamed "Jakarta" device, thought to be shipping under the BlackBerry Z3 name, and though it does not have a hardware keyboard, it could possibly be the first device under the company's new partnership with manufacturer Foxconn.
The images from N4BB offers no clues as to the internal specifications of the smartphone, nor indeed to the physical dimensions of the device itself, but it appears to have a narrower display compared the Z10 and Z30. Considering the specification increase between the two predecessors, the use of the Z3 name could suggest the internals are aimed more towards the mid-range or budget end of the market.
