Though the formal announcement of the new touchscreen BlackBerry 10 handset by Research In Motion Limited (USA)(NASDAQ:RIMM) would be on January 30th next year, the L Series Blackberry 10 phone has been leaked yet again.

The pictures that were revealed also highlighted that the L Series appeared the same as it did back in September, when it last appeared with the N Series phone. The long, black chassis remains, while the front has the slight look of Sony’s Xperia range to it, thanks to the edgeless screen. When placed next to the BlackBerry Bold, the new phone appeared quite long. This L Series handset is one of two phones on which Research in Motion will launch the BlackBerry 10 operating system next year, where it will be joined by the more traditional QWERTY keyboard-equipped N Series. Though not much information has been provided on the specifications of the phone, but if we go by the rumours that have been long prevailing the phone has a 4.2-inch screen with a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution, and a dual-core processor should be hiding inside.
Despite of the concerns of Research in Motion missing the first quarter release date, the company is set to have a global launch event for BlackBerry 10 and the L Series, where both phones and the new software will finally make their public debut. Kristian Tear, the COO stated that the BB10 handsets will on sale within 30 days of that event. This means it’ll make its self-imposed deadline, but only by a whisker.
