Is This 5-Inch Phone BlackBerry's New Hope?

Looks like BlackBerry’s might be interested in getting in on the enormo-phone scene, with the first leaked image of a phone destined to be known as the A10 seemingly confirming the existence of a 5-inch model—that could upgrade the Z10 with curvier lines and a newer version of BB’s mobile software.

According to the image, obtained by BGR, the A10 is known internally under the development name Aristo, and is pictured running version 10.2 of BlackBerry’s latest OS. The phone itself appears to be a little more rounded than the Z10, with the display said to be a Super AMOLED model running at 1280 x 720 resolution and an unspecified dual-core processor managing the business. It wouldn't be surprising if BlackBerry is contemplating a super-sized phone—but for now, we'll have to wait and see. [BGR via CrackBerry]
