As you’ve probably heard, on January 30th 2013 RIM will unveil BlackBerry 10 OS and at least two new handsets: BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry X10. The first is a full touch smartphone, while the second is a QWERTY + touch phone. We’re more interesting in the Z10, since it was recently rendered by Martin Hajek, a designer who imagined the look of the upcoming phone.

I should probably mention that the BlackBerry Z10 has leaked a bunch of times, so everyone knows what it looks like. However, we’re still lacking a press release and a press image, so we have to do with these renders, that are actually pretty well done. From what we’ve heard so far, the Z10 will be a handset without front side buttons, either capacitive or physical. It will rely on gesture control, a major part of BlackBerry 10 OS. The Z10 is rumored to feature a TI OMAP 4470 1.5 GHz dual core CPU or a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor for USA and Canada.

Other specs include a 4.2 inch display with a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution, quad band LTE connectivity, 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of storage and an 8 megapixel camera at the rear with LED flash. There’s also a microSD card slot, a 1800 mAh battery, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and a micro HDMI out port. So, fancy a BlackBerry Z10 based on these renders?
