Prolific leakster Evan Blass aka @Evleaks reiterates that BlackBerry will launch a high-end slider smartphone codenamed Venice , and a more affordable variant codenamed Prague . The former will boast a touchscreen and a QWERTY keypad along with a 5.4-inch Quad-HD display, 18-megapixel rear camera and a Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor. The latter, on the other hand, is said to be a full touch smartphone based on the BlackBerry Z3. Also Read - TCL will not design, manufacture or sell BlackBerry smartphones from August 31
The image shared by Blass though doesn t fit any of the aforementioned smartphones. Instead it looks like the BlackBerry Passport with its three-row physical QWERTY keypad. What s interesting though are the on-screen buttons at the top that look like the smartphone is running on Android Lollipop. At the moment, the photo is all that is available, and it isn t clear what smartphone it could end up being.
