BlackBerry Q10 gets the tear down treatment

By Adam Zeis on 22 Apr 2013 02:20 pm EDT

The BlackBerry Q10 is rumored to be released in the not too distant future but already has been subjected to the usual tear down. Not much to it this time around as the innards are pretty much what you'd expect at this point. The Q10 is very similar to the Bold 9900 at the core when all is said and done.

If you can stomach watching a disassembly of a shiny new pre-release Q10 then hit up the video above.

Be warned however that the entire video is in portrait orientation so it may be a bit painful :) 



it's 2013 and people still don't understand the difference between filming in landscape mode vs portrait?


Seriously, pocket video cameras are really cheap. They could just use one of those.


YES!!!! Why don't people get this? Has Apple and iOS really made people this stupid!?!?!?!


Some smartphone video camera apps are designed to shoot in portrait and landscape (i assume this was shot with a phone)


Made it in landscape, and we can see the PIN crafted on the front casing. Q10 used for this video is still for engineering review. I already saw the landscape mode video of it.

i sorta want my keboard back :( but still a very happy z10 user



Posted Securely Via My BlackBerry Z10.


Considering the orientation and aspect ratio of our monitors its a little strange to see anything recorded in portrait

It's 2013 and somebody with a major eye disorder is trying to smash a Q10...The only real luck it's that the phone it's pretty strong ...


Taking it apart and some of us are dying just to put the battery in..sighh


It looked like he has done this before or is aware of how they are put together?
Brand New unit too

How is this legal lol. This should be abuse in some way. I think it should be sent away to a loving home. Like mine

Posted from My Z10 via CB10


I will adopt it too. :)


But the back of the device in the video wasn't made of the special glass-weave material, or?

Posted via CB10

Mr Gill

Yeah it was the glass-weave, take a look again amigo


carbon tube back cover.

Posted via CB10


Glass weave. Carbon fiber would interfere with the radios

Posted via CB10 - FINALLY


You are right, it's carbon tube for the back cover.

A Lot more screws than the 9900 had. Also how he clicked the. Backplate out hurt me haha. I like how the 9900 was put together. I got bored and kept taking mine apart one day lol

I just realized that Q10 does not have front facing camera. I am sad now.


Yeah it does

Posted via CB10 - FINALLY


Thanks guys! I thought it didn't. I am happy again!


I just looked at the user guide & I don't see anything about front facing camera!


It's interesting, wolf35nine. I had seen those specs, but I read an article on Marketwatch that said it didn't have a front facing camera, and when I read the camera instructions on the BB web site, I couldn't find anything about the front facing camera. I wonder why the discrepancy?


Not sure, here is the spec sheet from the blackberry site:
It lists a front facing camera.


That's good news! That should be the correct specs.


No problem. I found the same info in the Q10 manuals from the blackberry site. I didn't read the whole thing, but pages 9, 18 and 59 specify the front camera too:


Good to know. Not sure how they missed that one. Will someone let them know they need to correct the article? Its a shame inaccurate information went out to 22,263 people according to their site.


I really hope this means there will be housings for the q10 and z10, that was one of the best things about blackberrys, you could always replace/refresh the outside/shell.


fuck this device is beautiful, the design is a success!


there should be a censorship warning.. couldn't handle it!!


Is this a fuse?
For example nice to see @7.39

Haven't seen this before...


Yes, according to the person who made this video

That's why I don't like it blackberry couldn't make another keyboard cellphone is the same hardware Mr personally I don't like that is wack the alpha b is a good choice

Posted via CB10


Seriously 1:29 seconds, I couldn't take it anymore.


Wow, I think this video is made by Indonesian....


and exactly what did happen to the battery?


Dude needs to cut some of those long fingernails. Ew


Not quite sure what the big deal is being able to take a phone apart good I guess if your a repair tech hut otherwise what exactly is the point?

From the Zed of Rockivy


It tells you if it is repairable and how much it is likely to cost. Important for an expensive item. The HTC One, according to iFixit, is basically unrepairable, while the Z10 gets 8 out of 10.


Those fingernails are ridiculous..

so what is this? the chinese already cloned the iPhone? now they are after the BB??? I can't wait for the Q10!!! Come on Verizon!!!


Does someone know if the 2100mAH in the Q10 would also fit in the Z10?

Would like to buy a more powerful battery...

Posted via CB10


is it just me or is the battery shape different from the z10? Could it be the rumored 2300 battery cause they really sold me with that.
