Here are Leaked High Quality Images of RIM’s BlackBerry L-Series [PICS]


Some high quality images of RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry L-Series smartphone has leaked online on (via The Verge). In mid-November we saw an early picture of this phone compared next to the iPhone 5, but those images aren’t as clear as these. The phone actually looks quite nice, check out a few of the pictures below:

The front of this new BlackBerry almost resembles the backside of the iPhone 5, no?

RIM looks to make a triumphant comeback with the BlackBerry in January of 2013. The company’s slow response to the bevy of smartphones today has resulted in numerous U.S. government organizations ditching the BlackBerry in favour of the iPhone. This hardware actually looks potentially “lustworthy”, now let’s hope the BlackBerry 10 software that goes with it is equally as polished.

Thoughts on these early images of the next BlackBerry?

Update: Here’s a hands on video of this same BlackBerry from

    I’m rooting for them because they’re Canadian.

  • Jonny

    Sigh… another ugly device hitting the market #smh

    I want RIM/Blackberry to succed.
    Duopoly (iOS/Android) is not a good thing for consumers.

    We need more competitions and more innovations to keep everyone on their toes.
    And we would all benefit.

    Look its a Unicorn!

    It does look nice … It just most likely is too little too late.

  • vanni

    Why would I or anyone want to buy a phone that looks like an iPhone when we can purchase the real thing. The iPhone has been tested and it works with millions of apps.

  • Not bad.

  • K3

    Anyone else think the volume rocker looks like it came from a 3gs? This phone would have been great in ’08.

  • sully54

    Looks good. Except the Blackberry logo has no
    Place on the front side.

  • Yeah it does look similar.

    It’s going to come down to the software for RIM. They need the best apps available at launch otherwise their phones will be useless.

  • BrodieTheDog

    Hey look!! It’s another iPhone clone.

  • RIM needed a phone that looked like this three years ago. It’s way too late for a “me too” product, they need to release something that is a huge step forward or it’s over.

  • arhyno

    i agree a bit gary, but i bet 50% of phone users probably wouldnt even consider the market when buying a phone. i bet 50% of iphone users buy the iphone because of hype. lol

  • arhyno

    in fact, the reason my wife wanted an iphone was because her friend in Australia had one and she wanted to imessage lol. even though she could of gotten away with and android with a chatting app.

  • Tom

    No, I don’t think so. I think 50% of iphone users were because rim let them down.

  • crosseyed_mofo

    its a nice phone but… anyone else turned off by the big “blackberry” signage in the front

    the logo on the back is subtle and classy, leave it at that i say

  • Eric Lewis

    I feel like everyone who waited so long already got an iPhone/Android
