The BlackBerry R10, as it’s called, is going to join the already available Z10 and the Q10, which is soon hitting the market.

The source of the photo adds that it’s a “mid tier” handset with a plastic build, which nevertheless feels “nice”.

According to the person behind the leak, the R10 is scheduled to come out in Q3 this year, but a more specific time slot hasn’t been mentioned. Specifications of the smartphone are yet to be known.
