BlackBerry Z30 gets an official launch

We said we were expecting it, so it is no surprise to see the BlackBerry Z30 getting an official launch.

This is likely to be BlackBerry's flagship smartphone for the forseeable future, although in truth, it's not a massive leap up from the Z10, the phone that ushered in the latest era in BlackBerry's history with the BB 10 OS.

The Z30 takes that a step further, shipping with version 10.2 of the BB 10 OS, along with a larger 5-inch, 1,280 x 720 Super AMOLED display. It also pack a dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU and a more substantial 2,880mAh battery inside, all into a package that's pretty much the same size as the Z10.

You'll also find 16GB of internal storage, 4G support (although details of that are still a little vague re networks), Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, a 2-megapixel front facer capable of 720p video and an 8-megapixel rear camera with an f2.2 lens, able to shoot video in 1080p.

As for getting hold of one, both Carphone Warehouse and Selfridges have confirmed that they will be selling the handset from 27 September. Contract prices still to be confirmed, but if you want one SIM-free, that will set you back around £600.
