RIM’s BlackBerry 10 operating system and new smartphones running on it are the worst-kept secrets, with almost everything there to know is already known. We have already seen scores of photos and videos of the BlackBerry Z10, the first smartphone running on the new OS. However, all of them featured the black variant of the device. But the latest leak, courtesy The Gadget Helpline, gives us a look at the white BlackBerry Z10 just a day before RIM’s global launch event.

Now, we have seen images of the white Z10 before all thanks to a promotional leak, but these are by far the most legible images of the Z10 in white. By the looks of it the Z10 has a grippy back-plate that’s reminiscent to the current generation of BlackBerry smartphones, but who knows this could be something different.

In the world of new 1080p displays and quad-core processor-equipped Android smartphones this may sound a bit mundane, but the news is in the software. The new swipe gesture oriented BB10 UI, looks pretty promising and RIM has even redesigned its legendary BBM service for the new platform, so it will be interesting to see how it competes with Windows Phone, Android and iOS.
