As expected, the BlackBerry Z3 will go on sale in Indonesia soon.

BlackBerry announced the news Monday, saying that the handset, which comes with a 5-inch display and runs the latest BlackBerry 10 version, 10.2.1, is now available for preorder. The smartphone will officially launch on May 13.

The BlackBerry Z3 was first unveiled at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. The device is part of a broader strategy on BlackBerry's part to appeal to international customers as demand for its products in the US continues to disappoint. It's not clear whether the BlackBerry Z3 will launch in other markets.

CNET has contacted BlackBerry for additional comment on the Z3. We will update this story when we have more information.
