BlackBerry Z30 rolls through the FCC

By Bla1ze on 28 Sep 2013 03:17 am EDT

Although it certainly won't come as huge surprise to many folks, it looks as though the BlackBerry Z30 has now passed on through the FCC under two different variations. L6ARFY110LW and L6ARFW120LW can now be viewed through the web site, although, a lot of the information is still subject to confidentiality until around mid-November such as the external photos and user guides.

No real secrets to be found within the available information, the usual North American carrier support (GSM/EDGE 850/1900, WCDMA/HSDPA Bands (FDD II, V), LTE Bands (FDD 4, 5) is listed along with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and NFC. Even with this listing, we're still a bit in the dark as to which version each carrier will be offering but with the device becoming increasingly available we should be able to get that sorted out soon enough.

Until then, if you fancy looking through the documents to see what else may be in them, you can hit the link to head on into the FCC database and holler out in the comments if you happen to spot anything we may have missed on our run through of the information.

That white just made my mouth drop..

Posted via CB10


+999999, OMG that white Z30 is so sexy. I want one already just by the looks.

Posted via CB10


Indeed, I am not the guy who'd get a white phone anyways, but it looks much better than the Z10 with its black bezel.

Posted via the awesome Blackberry Q10


Oh yeah. Dat bezel.

Posted while peeking and flowing on my incredible BBQ10!


Just wait 6 months or so and you'll be able to get one at a fire sale.


Good stuff

I want a Z30

Posted via CB10


Buy one

DAMN What a sexy phone

Posted via CB10


Would've been nice to have this in a few colors.

On The Underrated Never Duplicated Z10


Just tell me which model will work on ATT in the US and I'm good to buy a couple ;)


If you're ok with just upto HSPA+ speeds, either one. If you want LTE, then wait.


There was a 13 hour gap in articles today...

Aljean Thein

Yes, let's not do that again!

Posted via CB10


The day I complained about that. One of the moderators wanted to eat me alive.


Well, I would imagine that things are perhaps getting a bit glum at CB these days. Nothing but bad news. The write ups about this or that app are going to be fewer going forward as developer support slowly but surely disappears from what, sadly, looks to be a failing platform from a failing company. Such a shame. Sigh...


I hope you do well. I'm sure if Z30 gets good marketing support, it will rock. But a tad dissapointed with their marketing support here in Dubai for this beast. No one knows even if it exists, even those who own Z10 and when I say it is out to grab, I get a strange look with this question, so what exactly is Z30?
This from those who are using Z10 or Q10, come on BlackBerry please help us win this fight.

Posted via CB10


I wish Etisalat would make a trade-in or a better offer than 1GB free for 3 months. I got my wife's S4 Active for free with a contract. Why can't they do the same with BlackBerry?

Posted via ZCB10

Arny cua

Yes, this is the sad part.. marketing support is not that good.


So... what does this mean... are any of them for T-Mobile USA??

Posted via CB10


The RFY111LW (FCC ID L6ARFY110LW) has TMO's 3G/HSPA+ band, but not LTE.
The RFW121LW (FCC ID L6ARFW120LW) has only the refarmed 3G/HSPA+ band (1900). This is the European/Middle Eastern/Indian? model.

tl;dr: don't buy either for use on TMO.


I hope AT&T gets that white one. I was disappointed the Z10 white version was exclusive to Verizon. The white is more feminine imo

via CB10 on my AT&T Z10


Do these two versions have wireless charging and HDMI ?

Posted via CB10


HDMI perhaps. Wireless charging maybe not.

Post via CB Z10


HDMI most likely, wireless charging no. There is only one version rumored to be getting wireless charging, and its neither one of these two.


Here's the unfortunate reality - 0 marketing, minimal carrier support and a ridiculous, unrealistic high price, along with the fact that BlackBerry will probably be even worse off in November/December if/when this releases... It'll be a bigger flop than the Z10, which is a shameful waste of a potentially great phone.


Agree with most of the above other than the unrealistic price. Yes Selfridges are selling for 529 GBP but I've seen it advertised in 2 other places for 485 GBP. I think tis is not an unreasonable price for such a feature packed phone. This will probably drop quite sharply within the next 6 months if it does not get the marketing it deserves.


6 months will be way too late. It needs to be aggressively priced immediately or it has no chance with their current circumstances.


Feature packed.. ? This phone has absolutely no selling point or distinction from more popular devices other than the BB10 OS and we all know that hasn't been enough to sway the consumer market.

Please HELP ME!!

My blackberry Q5 has a problem the browser dosen't work

Plz tell me what to do

Posted via CB10

Fahad Shafiq

clear you cache, restart your phone or you can go to flight mode and turn it off...that way it shall clear up data..best is to restart and check. if it starts properly then okay, if it doesnt maybe you need to format. but if it starts but then has an issue sometime later, most probably its the issue with OS that shall be fixed in later release. i to experience in release. also check on your RAM. it might get low and wont allow browser to open


Same thing happened to my Q10. A hard reset is the only thing that'll fix it.


Check out the Q5 forum.

CANT WAIT FOR IT...certainely would sell z10 for this


So white!

Posted via CB10


Photos I've seen of Z30 look fabulous. Hope the quality is as good as my Q10. 5" screen size means it will be great for games,videos and reading large bodies of text.


That looks delicious! Would love to own this one too!

On my chosen one... z10


I am extremely excited about the Z30. Problem is I am do for an upgrade within a month and dont know whether it will be available in South Africa. I am currently using Z10 so I am still good

Posted via CB10


Still rocking the bold 9900 - will upgrade to this after Christmas if it looks like the company will survive...


The company will survive! :-)
Perfect gift to your self for Xmas!


Some people say they already have the Z30.. don't know how, but the Z30 should be here soon for the rest of us...


It's out in the Middle East and UK


Can't wait till it arrives in October on Verizon. Picking one up!

Posted via CB10


Nice phone!
BTW, Bla1ze, could you please explain why there's a BB Hub icon with the Z30? is it because of the 10.2 OS?


Yes there is a hub icon in all leaks since I think.

Posted via CBZ10 baby!


That's true blackberry has the worst marketing department. They already have the best phones in the market but most people don't know about it.

Posted via CB10


So true. Sadly great marketing will always beat great technology.


Here in Saudi Arabia
Z10 STL100-1 dropped from 2600sr at launch, to less than 1600sr nowadays for new.
Z30 is 2500sr through Axiom telecom.
One thing certain if a device can't hold its price well people tend to stay away from it and maybe get it second hand for even much lower price.
I got my STL100-1brand new Before launch for 2800sr and now it's no longer top of the line in 7 or 8 months.
go figure :/

STL100-1( on STC


I'm buying a Z30 because I want to be part of the exclusive club.

Posted via CB10


People be like, "hey, how did you get that phone? ". I simply reply, " it's exclusive, you have to order it online ".

I have No idea of what I just read, but that z30 looks amazing

Posted via CB10


T-Mobile needs this in white. I don't think they have carried a white phone since the 9700 lol

Posted via CB10


I wouldn't mind getting one of these. Just not sure where blackberry is headed.


BB will bounce back after it goes private! Go get your Z30, you'll love it!

Gene Ellison

Nice! Closer to having on at my disposal!

Posted via CB10


Definitely getting one. If T-mobile doesn't pick it up I will switch carriers.

Posted via CB10


Wow the white looks nice

Posted via CB10


So this thing is available now in the UK, but it's only now passing through the FCC?


They don't need to pass it through the FCC to sell it in the UK :)
Besides, neither of these models are for North America anyways.


My next phone... nice!!!


Woo hoo
