BlackBerry 'C-Series' smartphone caught on camera, looks slightly familiar
Now that the BlackBerry Z30 has been announced, a lot of folks have been asking what's next for BlackBerry in terms of devices. Well, after the announcements earlier about BlackBerry reducing their upcoming device portfolio from six down to four devices, the roadmap has certainly changed a bit but one thing that might still be on track is what is known as the Cafe Series otherwise known as the C-Series.
Over at BBIN, they've just posted the above image suggested to be a part of that series codenamed Americano, not that the codenames really mean much, but that's what it's presented as. Based on previous rumors, this one seems set to come in two different variations overall. One being a full touch and the other being a full QWERTY device. In terms of specs, the devices are suggested to be making use of Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processors with the 8x30 Pro being used in the LTE and HSPA variations, 4.2-Inch or 4.5-inch 720p display and a 5MP camera but, those specs could be subject to device variation.
If you get the feeling of déjà vu while looking at this device, you're not alone. Although I'm just guessing here and this is no way based on any facts, it seems as though this device could quite possibly be the one previously shown off over at BerryFlow as the 'Z5' though, the Z5 naming as far as I know has never really been confirmed as a real device model, it just had to be referred to something and that fit the bill. Again, it's hard to say where this device is now on the roadmap but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.
