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.
The Q10 also has a forward-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for stills and video calling. In addition to revealing the two new devices BlackBerry also announced the introduction of video calling across its BlackBerry Messenger service (BBM).
In order to use video calling on BBM, two BlackBerry 10-based devices or PlayBooks must be used. However, voice calling in BBM is still possible between BlackBerry 10 and older BlackBerry handsets.
