BlackBerry unveils Z30 with 5 inches Display and BB 10.2 OS

BlackBerry has added another device to its category of devices running on OS 10. BlackBerry already had an all touch Z10 and QWERTY cum touch Q10 and Q5 in its portfolio. Now, it has launched Z30 which can be considered as successor to Z10 and is also an all-touch device. The highlight of this device is surely its large screen of 5 inches; this is the largest screen size ever in a BlackBerry.

Another USP of the device is the latest OS 10.2 version, which is yet to be made available for other BlackBerry devices. The new OS brings a Priority Hub feature, which is similar to Gmail’s priority inbox and is helpful in segregating non sense communication with important communications (emails, social updates, BBM messages, etc.). The device also allows message preview directly in the lock screen. The BBM messages can now be replied from anywhere in the OS, even without exiting the app. A feature called Natural Sound allows for better audio during BBM voice and video chats.
