C-Series BlackBerry said to use Z10 styling, Q5 specification

Shortly after BlackBerry revealed the new Z30, a photograph of another incoming smartphone from the manufacturer has allegedly surfaced. The codenamed "Americano" smartphone, claimed to be under the "cafe series" or C-Series of device, is said to be a low-tier BlackBerry 10 device, and would be an entry-level device combining the touchscreen design of the Z10 and Z30 with the same kind of specifications found in the Q5.

The Americano, in an image shared by BBIN, is said to sport a 4.2-inch 720x1280 display. Though internals are not specified, if it is similar to the Q5 it should have a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 or similar processor running at about 1.2GHz, between 1GB and 2GB of RAM, have a five-megapixel rear camera, and also offer 4G LTE connectivity.

Considering the naming of Q-numbered devices, the Americano could end up with the model name Z5. Estimated launch dates were not suggested in the report.
