BlackBerry 10 TK2 Victory Concept Is Full Of Win

The fresh, new, and exciting BlackBerry TK Victory {concept}. Upgraded and improved to pack a punch in today’s ever rapidly growing and competitive super smartphone market.

 A clean and minimalistic design uncluttered in the hand. The TK Victory brings with it a design that meets innovation first hand with improvements that answers to ergonomics and real-world handling usage. Corning’s Lotus Glass makes its debut with a chemically enhanced 3.5″ HQVGA screen supported with Nanosys’ white LED back-lighting for true colour exposure using its latest QDEF technology. Built to withstand the ruggedness of our everyday the backing is smoothly curved and finished with a soft rubber textured coating with raised micro-beaded sides reassuring to never slip in the hands. The TK Victory’s touch operation eliminates the need for physical convenience keys and introduces the relocation of the dual-speakers to the sides making for a non-muffled sound in speaker or music playback when laying flat. Towards the top back, an easier and accessible Lock/Power key finds its groove for a natural finger press whether left or right as the bottom houses the micro-USB port for charging/syncing as well as the standard 3.5 jack
 Front comparison view: (from left to right) BlackBerry Porsche P’9981 Bold, BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 & BlackBerry TK2 Victory {concept}. The BlackBerry Bold 9000 had kicked-off the perfect sizing for users alike, but since its smaller follow-up iteration series continued I have always felt that a better aesthetics could have been brought to the table. While the Porsche designed BlackBerry P’9981 was created for another demographic altogether in my opinion it failed to meet such design appeal with its hard edged metallic assembly. The Bold 99XX commercial success remains the ideal design for present, but going forward with its latest innovation, a 2.8″ touch screen could have been maximised to take advantage of a stronger display as well as making subtle design changes to the location of the micro-USB and audio jack. The TK2 is the answer to improvements of where I believe the Bold can continue on its commercial win with a new overall sizing to body and screen
 Back comparison view: (from left to right) BlackBerry Porsche P’9981 Bold, BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 & BlackBerry TK2 Victory {concept}. The Porsche designed BlackBerry see’s a complete leather backing replacement with nothing more. So simple it adds nothing striking to match its luxury price tag. The Bold 99XX, smooth and clean remains to have a slip feel with an extruded compartment designed for its battery. The faux glass battery door while sturdy and aesthetically beautiful adds no value to real-world handling. The TK2 banks on the previous two Bold designs with a complete rubberised backing with a finished curved mold reflective to the way our hands wrap around smaller objects unconsciously. The extruded beaded texture found to the left and right of the back reinforces the feeling of reassurance even when a situation calls for a grab and go!

In another real-world comparison shot, the BlackBerry Bold 99XX vs the TK2 Victory.
Shot 1: On determining the size from the 10.5mm Bold 99XX, one way to drop the depth was to slice the backing and have a re-engineering to the internal battery housing giving the new depth an 8.5mm thickness (or thinness)
Shot 2: Versus the dime (Canadian dime (10 cent) used, roughly same size as an American 10 cent coin).
In this shot we see a rough estimate to its actual depth when layed flat.
Shot 3: On a stacking comparison, the depths of both devices continues to be less of the height of the dime (coin)

Introducing the BlackBerry TK Victory {concept}.
While numerous concepts have been submitted, none have touch on the more realistic approach to the real world of usage and handling like how the TK Victory is about to. Designed for everyone in mind, from suits to skirts, to overalls to hardhats, the TK Victory, the first qwerty BlackBerry 10 powered true superphone.
Corning makes its debut with the introduction of Lotus Glass on the beautiful curved wrap around 3.5″ screen showing vivid high-res colours supported by QDEF technology from Nanosys. Taking notes from the BlackBerry PlayBook, away with the trackpad and physical front keys, the removal is replaced by software-based keys with a smaller swipe bezel on all four sides. Standing tall at 119x66mm with a new depth of an astonishing 8.5mm weighing 130g the Victory is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-core 2.0GHz Grey ARM Cortex MPCore with vSMP allowing ease with multi-tasking, rich graphics, cascades, animated interfaces and menus and more. Equipped not just for media, the 32GB on-board storage holds plenty for your choosing (encrypted email and files partitioning option), but the 2GB iRAM (independent RAM) is the bonus that will help run your Victory to its full capacity.
Bringing back the dual LED notifications from the TK1.5 Titan {concept} allow designation of Bluetooth-connected devices to blink connectivity on their own with messages occupying the second. The Victory introduces the front-facing camera with an output of 8MP with call-to-call and Skype options with a 12 MP (3300 x 2484 pixels) rear camera Carl Zeiss optics, optical sensor, autofocus, dual LED Xenon flash shooting video at 1080p HD @30fps featuring 5x loseless digital zoom, video stabilization, simultaneous HD video and image recording.
Designed to be the one phone you will need, the TK Victory is jam packed with goodies. Using the Apple designed nano-SIM, LTE is on-board along with being both GSM and CDMA. Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi n/g/ac will keep you connected to devices and networks. Wi-Fi Auto-spot is the new Hotspot locator and saver on the battery. DLNA Certified means you will be able to stream, copy, share, and backup your Victory without the mess of wires. Built-in NFC with built-in software support from ISIS, Iris, and HID Global will gain you access with your device to authorised entries.
Audio should never sound muffled! The now visible microphone below the keyboard supports voice output feedback along the noise cancellation. Located to the sides, (and this is kick-ass) the re-located dual speakers letting you lay your device flat on the face or back no matter the surface. Useful for speakerphone mode, while driving, conference calls, or just some awesome music and video playback. The complete back has been fitted with a rubberised coating with micro-beads to the left and right ensuring that a slip never happens again. Making power management that much easier, the TK Victory is complete with a single Lock/Power key to maintain a days plus worth of communication, fun, and of course work. And to help you along through the day the TK Victory is accompanied with a 1950mAh li-ion battery.
