BlackBerry is rumored to be working on a new smartphone which it would name as the Magnum. A set of photos of the unannounced phone has surfaced on Weibo, suggesting that the company is working on the BlackBerry Magnum smartphone, which would come with a full QWERTY keypad as well as a touchscreen and be based on the company’s Bold series of smartphones’ design.
Rumors of BlackBerry working on the Magnum first appeared long ago when it was thought to be based on the Bold 9000. However, the phone was then reported to have been scrapped by the company. The device in the new photos carries the same old codename but is a different product that is based on the Bold 9900, CrackBerry notes.
