High-Res Images of BlackBerry 10 L-Series Handset Leaks

High-resolution images have showcased RIM's upcoming touchscreen BlackBerry 10 handset, rumored to be part of the L-Series lineup.

The pictures from Vietnamese site Tinhte, while not showing it switched on and running on BlackBerry 10, depict a large bezel on both the top and bottom of the phone, adding extra length to the smartphone, and making it look a bit like the back of the iPhone 5.

On the back of the device, slots for a microSIM and microSD card are present and will be hidden by the rear cover. The latter will be accessible without the requirement of removing the battery.

A camera lens and flash is placed in the top corner, while the play/pause toggle is integrated into the right hand side of the device. If the snaps are legit, the BlackBerry 10 L-Series handset will boast NFC technology, in addition to microUSB and microHDMI slots.

Apart from the first official teaser image, RIM has remained tight lipped about its handset, but has confirmed it'll reveal BlackBerry 10-powered smartphones on January 30, the day the operating system itself launches worldwide. A release date is apparently scheduled for 30 days later, contrary to analysts' predictions.

    Hey, look, a removable battery cover, and it's still a sexy device! See that, HTC, Motorola, Apple, etc? It can be done!
    I have not used a BB device before, but I wish them a good comeback with this one, just because competition is good for us.

    We need specs, to have something to talk about.
