New Delhi: Having launched its much-awaited BlackBerry Q5 in Dubai last week, the company is now all set to bring its lower-priced smartphone to India. According to a source with information on the BlackBerry Q5 launch plans in India, the company will launch the mid-range BlackBerry Q5 in India in July. The exact launch date, though is not known as BlackBerry is yet to finalise the date.
Unveiled last month, the BlackBerry Q5 is likely to be priced under Rs 25,000. It is retailed at approximately $400 in Dubai. The device will be available in red, black, white and pink.
It is BlackBerry's third smartphone to run the new BlackBerry 10 system. The Q5 has a physical keyboard, something that sets BlackBerry's devices apart from Apple's iPhone and most Android phones.
The Q5 differs only slightly from the Q10. Both have 2GB of RAM, though the Q5 has only 8GB of flash memory compared to 16GB for the Q10.
Both Q5 and Q10 have 2 megapixel front-facing cameras, but the Q5's rear-facing camera is only 5 megapixels, compared to the 8 megapixel camera in the Q10. The Q5 has a 3.1-inch LCD display, while the Q10 is 3.1 inches LED.
