BlackBerry is rumored to be working on a Z10-like smartphone that sports a huge 5-inch screen. This is believed to be BlackBerry's move to join the phablet scene. According to Jefferies analyst Peter Misek, BlackBerry is planning to have two or three more models before the year ends, and this includes the large-screened phablet. The other two will be a mid-range keyboard smartphone similar to Q10 and possibly, a mid-range touch device.

BlackBerry just recently rebranded this year, dropping the name RIM, and launched its latest flagship, the BlackBerry Z10.
