The Q10 greets you with the same home and app screen as the Z10 when you fire it up, but uses a 720 x 720 pixel resolution for its display.
However, a RIM spokesman told ZDNet that developers would not have to build apps differently for the lower resolution screen as they would automatically adapt, depending on which BlackBerry 10 device was being used.
In order to bring greater precision to the typing experience, BlackBerry has frets between the layers of keys.
Specific measurements and the weight of the device have not been announced by BlackBerry yet, but the handset did seem a little thicker and a little heavier than the Z10.
It also shares most of the same hardware traits as the Z10, meaning it has the same controls (volume rocker, power button etc) on the edge of the chassis.
The rear of the device features a "glass-weave" effect cover, which BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins said is "thinner, lighter and stronger" than regular plastic.
Again, like the Z10 it features an 8-megapixel camera capable of 1080p video recording and a user-removable rear cover and battery.
