Three Upcoming BlackBerry Smartphones Including QWERTY 'Slider' Bare All In Freshly Leaked Photos
Fresh off posting a surprise profit amid sagging sales and lost customers, it looks as though BlackBerry is prepping at least three new phones for public consumption, pictures of which have been leaked to the web. One of the phones is the BlackBerry Oslo, a device that's been leaked to the web before, though none of the three have been officially announced.
Similar in style to the Passport, especially the version with rounded corners for AT&T's network, it's believed the Oslo will also feature similar hardware. Word on the web is that the Oslo will sport a square-shaped display with a 1440x1440 resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Series SoC, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, 3,450mAh battery, and OS 10.3.2.
Second up to bat is the P'9984. As designated by the P' prefix, the P'9984 is a Porsche Design handset, meaning you can expect an extra bit of luxury in the construction. For example, the P'9981 from BlackBerry boasts a premium forged stainless steel frame, genuine leather backing, and a wide QWERTY keyboard. As for the P'9984, it's likely to be modeled after the Passport.
The third device a curved handset that's either going to be called BlackBerry Slider or BlackBerry Venice. If the leaked specs hold true, it will debut with a 5.1-inch 2560x1440 (QHD) display, an octa-core CPU, 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, and front-facing speakers.
