BlackBerry Jakarta, an affordable Foxconn product’s photos leaked

A new leaked photos renders the upcoming BlackBerry Jakarta Z31 handset, which could be sold in developing markets such as Indonesia, as the name suggests.



BlackBerry Jakarta is one of the first affordable-range of smartphones after the troubled smartphone-maker signed a 5-years contract with Foxconn to produce handsets for budget-conscious consumers in developing countries. Foxconn will be designing, manufacturing and warehousing the upcoming budget phones, while BlackBerry provides the its mobile operating system OS 10 for those devices.

The leaked photos shows a square-corner designed all-touch handset, which will be having a anti-slip rear panel with dotted design, a speaker grill and a blackberry logo at the middle of the panel. We can also see a rear camera and a LED flash aligned well at the top left corner of the rear panel. There are no physical buttons at the front side of the device, but we can see 4 keys placed at the left side of the device – Power button (first one), volume rockers (up and down) and another small button between the volume rockers.

According to the rumors, BlackBerry Jakarta will sport a 5-inch 540 x 960 resolution display screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage space, 2,650mAh battery, 5MP primary camera and a 1.1MP front camera.

Rumors also suggests that the company is developing a high-end smartphone with 64 bit octa-core processor to launch in United States, while the BlackBerry Jakarta’s entry to the US market has a low possibility and expectation.

Although the Canadian smartphone-maker is vanishing from the mobile market, it has never stopped updating its BlackBerry OS 10 mobile operating system. Recently, the company released a major update to it BB OS 10, which brought many design and UI changes to compete with iOS and Android. What is your opinion about the new move by the BlackBerry?
