Three New Leaked Blackberry Phones Are Surfing The Web

BlackBerry continues to churn ahead with the development of new models. Images of three new, unannounced phones were published on Monday. The first one is the sequel to the BlackBerry Passportknown as the BlackBerry Oslo. We've seen pictures of this handset earlier this month.

First up, is the aforementioned curved device. It is dubbed the BlackBerry Slider or BlackBerry Venice and it is gearing up to be a true flagship offering. It should feature a 5.1-inch display, with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. Currently, we can't really say in the display is actually curved, like the one on the Galaxy S6 edge, or the effect is achieved by some clever optical work, like with the upcoming Oppo R7, but that is really beside the point. The smartphone looks quite nice and a very pleasant change of pace for BlackBerry. Its specs sheet should also include an octa-core CPU, a 16MP main camera, 5MP front-facing shooter and a 3,650 mAh battery, so it is definitely studding into flagship territory.

There are two other new devices that are featured in the leaked photos. One is said to be a direct successor to the current BlackBerry Passport. As far as we know, it will bear the name Oslo and share much of its sibling's specs sheet, like the same 1440 x 1440 pixels display, Snapdragon 800 chipset, a 13MP camera with OIS and a 3450 mAh battery. The device also looks to be quite similar on the physical side, with the same spacious physical QWERTY keyboard.

 The second model is the P'9984. BlackBerry faithful know that when they see that P' prefix, it means that a BlackBerry Porsche Design model is coming. This year, the Porsche Design phone will be modeled after the Passport, right down to that special QWERTY keyboard on the device done up in the futuristic Porsche Design style. 

The BlackBerry Slider/Venice is top-shelf all the way from the 5.1-inch 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution screen, to the octa-core CPU. A 3650mAh battery keeps the lights on, and the phone would offer a 16MP rear-facing camera along with a 5MP front-facing snapper. This handset could make a debut this coming fall.
