Even as BlackBerry admits it will entertain buyout offers or possibly take the company private, the smartphone maker is also moving ahead on the product front.
The Z30 smartphone is rumored to have a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with (1,280 x 720 resolution) which is big enough to be considered one of the new generation of over-sized smartphone/kind-of-a-tablet devices that are often referred to as a phablet.
The Z30 will run the latest version of the BlackBerry OS (vers. 10.2), powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a large (2800 mAh) rechargeable battery inside.
TheStreet.com spotted some leaked photos and video on Vietnamese websites that claim to show the new Z30. A BlackBerry spokesperson said the company doesn't "comment on rumor and speculation."
In a statement that was released earlier today, the company confirmed that a special committee will enquire about possible joint ventures, strategic partnerships or even the sale of the company, but stressed that "there can be no assurance that this process will result in any transaction."
