Here's the 2880 mAh battery, which BlackBerry says will last for 25 hours of mixed use. It's not a removable battery, however, which may disappoint some, although the Z30 does come with an external battery pack too.
One feature of BlackBerry 10.2 the company is touting is that users can get a preview of any message as it arrives in whatever app their using. For example, if a BBM message arrives, users can reply without leaving the app they have open at the time.
The launch of the Z30 comes during a difficult period for BlackBerry.
It was for a long time the undisputed leader in enterprise smartphones, and enjoyed considerable success for a time in the consumer space too. But since those glory days it has faded dramatically and the BlackBerry 10-based handsets so far haven't been the breakthrough hits the company had hoped.
Earlier this year the company revealed it had formed a special committee to explore options for the business which could include joint ventures, strategic partnerships or alliances, or a sale. Last week the company said it will cut 4,500 staff and refocus on the "enterprise and prosumer market".
The company has now signed a letter of intent agreement under which a consortium led by Fairfax Financial Holdings has offered to acquire the company for $4.7 billion.
