5. Kamera

Kamera pada smartphone BB 10 memungkinkan pengguna menyorot wajah sesesorang sebelum mengambil gambarnya. Dengan begitu, Anda dapat menentukan ekspresi wajah sesorang yang ingin Anda potret.

Blackberry 10 Siap Masuk Pasar Indonesia

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID,Beberapa waktu yang lalu CEO RIM telah memastikan bahwa handset BlackBerry telah siap meluncur pada bulan Fabruari 2013. Peluncuran besar-besaran di seluruh dunia tentu sedang dipersiapkan oleh tim RIM dalam waktu dekat ini, termasuk tim RIM di Indonesia. Karena kabarnya handset BlackBerry 10 telah lulus uji sertifikasi Dirjen Postel Indonesia.

Dalam dokumen yang diperoleh tertera BlackBerry 10 dengan seri STL100 yang merupakan kode dari BlackBerry L Series. Dengan begitu bisa dipastikan bahwa L Series akan menjadi handset BlakcBerry 10 pertama yang akan hadir di Indonesia.

BlakcBerry 10 L Series memiliki kemampuan resolusi layar 720 yang akan melengkapi fitur di BlackBerry M Series dengan desain slider. Format rasio layar juga telah mendukung tampilan widescreen 16:9. Kamera depan L-Series kabarnya juga akan mendukung fitur video BBM yang akan membuat BBM semakin seksi.

BlackBerry 10 Aristo specifications leak, get us excited

The BlackBerry 10 OS launch is fast approaching and we already got to learn the specs of RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry L-Series phone. Turns out, there’s a much more interesting device in the pipeline dubbed the BlackBerry 10 Aristo.

Revealed in a leaked specifications slide, the Aristo (Greek for “the best”) is rocking some serious processing power under the hood and, if the info is trustworthy, this is set to be quite the beast.

The BlackBerry Aristo is powered by a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core Krait processor running at 1.5GHz coupled with 2GB of RAM. The smartphone also impresses with a 4.65-inch OLED display of HD resolution. The screen is said to use OCTA Glass made by Samsung, which eliminates an additional touch screen layer and integrates the touch sensor directly onto the AMOLED panel instead.

As a result, the BlackBerry 10 Aristo will measure just 8.85mm thick. It’s not the thinnest device out there, but it’s certainly the slimmest in RIM’s portfolio. Connectivity is reportedly going to be pretty solid as well with NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, microHDMI out, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA and microUSB.

Above the display stands a 2MP front-facing camera capable of shooting 720p video, while at the back the Aristo will make use of an 8MP snapper with auto focus and LED flash. Naturally, it will have no problems shooting 1080p at 30fps.

There’s 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable thanks to the microSD card slot. The leaked slide also suggests a beefy (but non-removable) 2,800mAh battery.

If the slide hasn’t been faked, we might be looking at a device well suited to start RIM’s fightback.


Research in Motion. Expect only the *best! If this leak holds true, RIM will be back as a dominant player.

This past week readers were treated to leaks galore. Covering the spec lists on the full touch BlackBerry 10 L-Series (Laguna, Lisbon, & London) to render mock-ups on the L and N-Series, the first BlackBerry 10 keyboard phone. While the N-Series slightly disappointed, my spirits were again lifted after seeing this on my desk.

I’ve never seen the A series mentioned anywhere, so not only are we revealing the specs but the models name.  At this point, I’m unable to comment on whether this will be a series or a one-off phone for those who want larger screens.

With the height and width seeing a slight bump, the spectacular specifications listed here could only mean RIM is damn serious about claiming the market it once owned.

The BlackBerry 10 Aristo (Aristo” is Greek for “the best”) I think will be the ultimate of the BlackBerry 10’s to come. Let’s go check out the specs already!

Getting technical – In depth:

Using the baseband modem is the MDM9x15 (possibly the 9615 – if so this is the same one found in the iPhone 5), which is a so-called world mode mobile data modem and according to Qualcomm’s documentation, supports “LTE FDD/TDD CAT3, SVLTE-DB, Release 8 DC-HSPA+, TD-SCDMA, GSM/GPRS/EDGE, EGAL, 1x Adv., EV-DO Rev. A/B”.

The processor is a Qualcomm APQ8064 Krait Quad Core 1.5GHz. The APQ8064 was announced in July 2012 at Uplink, Qualcomm’s developer conference by Raj Talluri who was previously employed at Texas Instrument and was closely involved with the developments of the OMAP 3 and OMAP 4 chipsets. Classifying the APQ8064 in the S4 Pro family this chipset featuring four Krait cores running at up to 1.5 GHz when all four cores are taxed, or up to 1.7 GHz when only one core is active*!


  • 136 x 68 x 8.85 mm / 5.35” x 2.59” x 0.34” in

L-Series: (Laguna, Lisbon, London)

  • 130 x 65.6 x 9mm / 5.11” x 2.58” x 0.35” in

Display: OCTA Glass OLED 4.65″, 1280×720 – 24bit – 16:9 (L-Series: 1280×768 resolution)
Those that are unfamiliar, OCTA is a development of Samsung Mobile Display. OCTA – On-Cell Touch Active-Matrix Light-Emitting Diode (AMOLED). This display was designed and produced to help accelerate performance demands from today’s mobile devices. With On-Cell Touch this removes embedded layers on the screen giving it the competitive edge of the 8.85mm depth – the thinnest BlackBerry so far.

With the baseband modem we know this will be a world device.

NA = North America

  • GSM – Quad band (not specified)
  • WCDMA – 2100/1900/850-850MHz
  • LTE – AWS/700/1900/850MHz

EU = European Union/APAC = Asia Pacific

  • GSM – Quad band (not specified)
  • WCDMA – 2100/1900/850-850/900MHz
  • LTE – 1800/2.6GHz/800/900MHz

Another in the full touch family, this BlackBerry 10 is a Capacitive All Touch device. Interaction will be no doubt the same rich and intuitive gestures from the PlayBook to the Dev Alpha’s.

The camera repeats with 8MP. This should have seen 12MP with everything else in place. The usual suspects of 1080p/30fps are here. The front-facing camera see’s a nice 2MP update at 720p

Now it gets exciting! 2GB of RAM. This is what I want to see in all 2013 models. 16GB onboard Flash is present and includes a 16GB MicroSD card fitting in a Hot Swappable MicroSD slot. Still no mention for support of the 64GB microSD.

Wi-Fi will have the “n” inclusion with backwards compatibility of a/b/g. With a speed boast from 2.5GHz/5GHz with 4G MobileHotspot.

I said it before: connectivity, accessibility, and the sharing of information – This has not been forgotten. MicroUSB, MicroHDMI, NFC, and DLNA come treated with Bluetooth 4.0. This is a major update as so far leaked documentations indicate that the L-Series devices mentioned will see BT 2.1 which is a huge let down going forward.

Audio over-haul: Two microphones are common, but having four with Noise Reduction is just a bonus. The over-haul is the Wideband AMR. Wideband Adaptive Multi-Rate uses a speech compression technique to increase the audio bandwidth to 7 kHz. This would roughly double the speech bandwidth compared to narrow-band AMR without impacting the radio and/or backhaul requirements.

Holy smokes Batman! The Aristo will be packed with a 2800mAh battery. The downside…it will be a sealed battery with a non-removable door. Given that it will be 8.85mm in thickness, this wasn’t a big surprise. However, the BlackBerry community aren’t familiar to sealed units (aside from PlayBook and Dev Alpha owners) compared to iPhone users as all previous BlackBerry’s have removable batteries. This will take getting used to for the most, but under the new architecture of QNX, I don’t believe battery pulling will be of a common practise. The PlayBook’s are a good example of this.

Among the sensors, Face detect for phone calls shows up here. I mentioned Apple’s FaceTime with a question mark in a previous post, but it sounds like the ability to answer calls by a quick scan of the face. This tech reminds me of Samsung’s face detection for unlocking access. Let’s hope RIM or it’s third-party choice if this is the case has significantly improved this functionality as this would be something heavily adopted by motorist worldwide.

SIM remains to be a mystery. I still believe the MicroSIM has been adopted for BlackBerry 10′s, although I’m really hoping it will be a NanoSIM.

The specifications left out are straight-forward and were not areas that needed to be expanded and/or explored on.

Though not being officially announced this is indeed classified as a leak. So take as you may.
