BlackBerry is reported to be going bigger and stronger for its next flagship smartphone, the A10. According to BGR, the upcoming phone will have a 5-inch Super AMOLED display, a dual-core processor, and 2GB of RAM. The increased display size will call for an updated design — and it'll apparently look a lot like Samsung's Galaxy S4, just a bit bigger and rounder. BlackBerry is reportedly waiting on quad-core processors for now as a way to help conserve battery life on the new device.

The hope is that those improvements will make the A10 a great device for gaming. According to BGR, BlackBerry is planning to heavily push the device's gaming capabilities when it launches — though the platform doesn't exactly have a vibrant game library to show off just yet. The A10 is rumored to be launching this November, and will apparently be the last major BB10 smartphone for 2013. BlackBery has been working quickly to catch up with the competition — improved mobile gaming might not make it stand out, but it would certainly help to bring the A10 on par with other manufacturers' flagship smartphones.
