Are you ready for another BalckBerry phone? Then you have to look at what the new smartphone from the Canadian company readying its next smartphone with, has served up some interesting devices in the past, and now it looks like a new QWERTY handset is under development. Reportedly codenamed Oslo, BlackBerry’s next upcoming device. Photos of the smartphone has been leaked by the website N4BB.com, and said that the new model will be aimed at European and Asian consumers. Details of what exactly the BlackBerry Oslo specs, price and release date time frame goes by, can be grabbed after this jump.
BlackBerry Oslo clould be the refreshed version of Passport, and the new handset doesn’t seem to offer the latest specifications. It’s the AT&T model, curvier all around, and it appears to have a slightly more compact plastic frame which is easier to fit into your pocket. Alleged to be called a BlackBerry Passport 2, and leaked specs points to a familiar software and hardware specs. Overall the Oslo looks like a simplified version of last year’s Passport with a beveled rubber back and a redesigned camera.
Under the hood, the purported BlackBerry Oslo will pack a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM and 13-megapixel rear camera and a 3450mAh battery. Like Passport, the blackBerry’s new phone aka successor sports a square display, though there’s no word on its exact size of resolution screen. Nevertheless, it also looks like the Oslo might back-up a fingerprint reader on its back portion, but we are,’t certain that is what we’re looking at in a leaked image above.
N4BB notes that the Oslo might not get a global launch. Instead it could hit as the Chinese version of BlackBerry Passport. In fact the phone may not merit a huge public announcement, but the device features a metal frame and back covered by textured rubber designed for EMEA and APAC markets running on BlackBerry 10.3.2 as the OS on top, which would suggest that the company still sees plenty of demand for its squarish smartphone.
