BlackBerry Z3 appears

Struggling BlackBerry appears to be starting a comeback as leaks suggest the company is about to release a new mobile phone.

According to, the upcoming budget-friendly handset has already surfaced online under the Jakarta name, though it is thought that BlackBerry will opt for the Z3 title for its release.

The leak suggests that the Z3 will be an all-touch smartphone similar to the likes of the BlackBerry Z10 and Z30, despite new boss John Chen indicating that the manufacturers would keep its trademark physical keyboards this year.

Preivous rumours expect the handset to be a budget device with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB RAM and be priced around AU$150.

However, renders are hard to judge when it comes to how genuine they are, as they are fairly easy to fake. 

There has also been recent rumours that suggest BlackBerry could turn up at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in Barcelona, so we could see more of this handset.
