Candian smartphone maker BlackBerry launched its premium flagship Z30 phone in India at Rs 39,990 . The phone will feature BlackBerry's latest version of its BB 10 operating system and has a 8 mega pixel rear camera with a 1.7 GHz processor.
The phone that was originally priced at Rs 44,990 will be available in retail stores across the country early next week.
The 5-inch device with Super AMOLED display and a 1.7 GHz processor with quad-core graphics comes with stereo speakers as well as its latest technology, BlackBerry Natural Sound, which promises a unique audio experience. This is biggest phone from the BlackBerry stable so far.
The touchphone has a 2 GB RAM and has an internal memory of 16 GB, which can be expanded to to 64 GB. It has an 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front facing camera.
