I've always said that when it comes to phone leaks, videos are better than still images, and tonight a newly-leaked clip is backing that up. Just a couple of days after the first image of the BlackBerry A10 (codename "Aristo") made its way online, a brief video showing the big phone in action has been posted. Uploaded to YouTube by user "Vivix phu kien," the clip shows someone unlocking the A10, flipping through its home screens and settings menu, and then jumping into the BlackBerry Hub.
The phone in the video looks fairly similar to the one that posed for a photo recently, sporting rounded corners, a white chin, and a front-facing camera nestled right next to its earpiece. The phone itself looks pretty sizable, which isn't a shock considering that the A10 is rumored to be packing a 5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display. While this new video doesn't really provide us with any new details on the A10, it does give us an idea of just how large the phone will be and what it'll look like in a user's hand.
Recent rumors have suggested that the BlackBerry A10 could launch this fall, with a release on Sprint reportedly scheduled for November. That may be several months out, but at least BlackBerry fans have leaks like these to keep them occupied until then. And hey, considering how many times the BlackBerry Z10 leaked out ahead of its launch, I wouldn't be surprised to see the A10 peek its big ol' head out again before its official debut.
