Like we said, the exact price of the smartphone is not mentioned on SnapDeal. However, in order to preorder it you’ll have to pay Rs.1000/- in advance.

The payment can be made by means of various payment methods including Net Banking, Easy Monthly Installments (EMIs) and Debit/Credit card.

Having the usual QWERTY form factor the smartphone Q10 features a 3.1 inch Super AMOLED capacitive multi-touch screen with 720 x 720 pixels resolution (~328 ppi pixels density). It has a 1.5GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4470 Cortex-A9 processor along with 2 GB RAM & PowerVR SGX544 GPU. And like we said, it runs on latest BlackBerry 10 operating system and supports Java as well.
