Repair parts make a lot of buzz when it comes to Apple related leaks that give a lot of information about what specifications the next generation device will carry. Few repair parts of the BlackBerry Z10 has been leaked that are good enough to get the geek in us all worked up. The parts, however, have striking resemblance with the pictures leaked a while ago and matches with the one posted by eTradeSupply.
eTradeSupply got their hands-on with the BlackBerry Z10 Parts (notably two digitizers and a digitizer LCD assembly from 2 different Blackberry 10 phones) and noted few hardware specifications. After examining the digitizer and LCD assembly of Blackberry Z10, they found the proximity, light sensor, and the front camera hole on the top of the front side. As evident in the leaked part, the barcode doesn’t hint anything about the device except its sample identity.
The other photo shows both the flex cables of digitizer and LCD is short and the LCD flex cables are attached on the LCD. The LCD is a little bit thicker than the digitizer and front glass lens making us to believe the upcoming Blackberry Z10 could adopt a normal LCD display. The other digitizer assembly resembles the Blackberry 10 Dev Alpha with 3 holes – light, proximity sensor and front camera hole. The earphone hole is not on the front glass which is compatible to the Blackberry 10 Dev Alpha. As compared with the former one, the flex cable of this digitizer is much longer.
Regardless if these are the legit parts or not, it seems like RIM has major changes in store for the upcoming BlackBerry 10 devices. At this point, I wouldn’t be too surprised if the leaked BlackBerry 10 specifications floating around come true.
RIM will formally unveil the Z10 and the new BlackBerry 10 operating system at a big press event on January 30. Check out the video hands-on for BlackBerry 10.
