BlackBerry A10 appears in video, 5-inch display and all

What you're about to see would very much appear to be the next-generation BlackBerry smartphone code-named BlackBerry A10 Aristo. This device has been rumored to be the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone to be working with a 5-inch display, aiming to take on the likes of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 in the handheld market while the original BlackBerry Z10's display size lacks punch. This device takes on an appearance much like the Z10, working instead with a white bar of plastic on its bottom instead of both its bottom and its top.

This device is not, in this case, joined by one whole heck of a lot of detail as we assume the videographer does not want to be identified as such. What we're seeing here matches up quite well, on the other hand, with the tips for this device thus far. That's the possibility of a 1280 x 720 resolution spilled over a 5-inch display with AMOLED technology and a very, very similar design language for the hardware as a whole.

The model of this device we've seen so far has been set for AT&T, while this video would appear to be filmed in Vietnam. It's very possible that the first versions of the device would be constructed in Vietnam and still headed for the USA carried by AT&T, of course, but such a location could imply the machine were headed anywhere. BlackBerry's main market concern at the moment is the USA.

This surfacing of images and video follows recent disheartening news from the company on their most recent quarterly earnings well inside the BlackBerry 10 era of smartphone devices. There's been a BlackBerry Z10 subsidy increase after relatively terrible sales and a promise of BlackBerry 10.2 as BlackBerry 10.1 just hits the wild.

Meanwhile the BlackBerry Q5 is well on its way to the hands of consumers with Thorsten Heins, CEO of the company, suggesting that one more BlackBerry 7 device will be approaching soon. That device would be the BlackBerry 9720, an updated bit of hardware on the back of the QWERTY phones of old.

Both the BlackBerry A10 and BlackBerry 9720 are rumored to be hitting the market well within 2013.
