BlackBerry Z30, Z10, Q5

The BlackBerry Z30, formerly known as the A10, has starred in its fair share of leaks recently. That includes spec leaks, photo shoots and even a lengthy hands-on video. Today the Z30 has shown its face once again, and this time its brought along a couple of friends.

CrackBerry has shared some photos of the BlackBerry Z30 lounging next to its BlackBerry 10-powered siblings, the full-touch Z10 and the QWERTY-clad Q5. Since the new shots show the Z30 next to two phones that have actually been released, they help to give us a better idea of just how big the Z30 is.

One thing that's worth noting about the Z30 in these latest photos is that the device's 5-inch Super AMOLED display is showing 5 rows of app icons, which is 1 extra than the units that we've gotten peeks at in the past. Perhaps that large screen will be good for more than just an improved media consumption experience.

The Z30 is expected to be BlackBerry's flagship smartphone for the latter portion of 2013. According to the rumor mill, the device will sport a dual-core processor and the aforementioned 5-inch Super AMOLED display, giving fans of the phone/tablet hybrid device category a new, non-Android device to check out.

So far we've seen Sprint, AT&T and Verizon all named as carriers that could end up stocking the Z30 in the U.S., so if you're on one of those operators and think that a big ol' BlackBerry would be up your alley, you may want to begin saving your pennies now. A photo comparing the backsides of the Z10 and Z30 is available below, and a couple more images can be found over at CrackBerry.
