BlackBerry Q5, out in the market this weekend for P18,690

BlackBerry was supposed to launch their latest BB10 device, which is the Q5, yesterday but had to postpone due to the severe weather condition.

The BlackBerry Q5 is considered to be the more affordable version of the Q10, which is a QWERTY smartphone in the BlackBerry 10 platform (version 10.1). Instead of a serious design found on the Q10, the BlackBerry Q5 has a more youth-oriented look although only available in Black despite having a White and Red version.

It has BlackBerry’s classic QWERTY keyboard to match the 3.1-inch touchscreen. It will also have the same but lower-clocked dual-core chip as the more expensive Q10 to go with 2GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. Although the chip is capable of LTE, it seems that unlocked units will only be getting 3G.

There’s a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front facing one and a non-removable battery rated at 2180mAh which is slightly higher than the Q10 (2100mAh).

Kristian Salvo, Country Manager for the Philippines at BlackBerry said, “We are excited to bring the new BlackBerry Q5 smartphone to the Philippines. The BlackBerry Q5 smartphone offers a great experience to customers who want to have the power of BlackBerry 10 with a QWERTY keyboard in a stylish youthful design, making it easy for them to have fun and stay socially connected with those that matter most to them.”

The BlackBerry Q5 is slated to hit the market this weekend, August 24, for Php18,690.
