BlackBerry may have abandoned the BlackBerry 10 OS but they are not abandoning their legendary QWERTY keyboards anytime soon. BlackBerry is going to release at least one Android phone with a physical BB keyboard in 2017. The news has also been confirmed by BlackBerry CEO John Chen while talking to Bloomberg.
“We have one keyboard phone I promised people, and its coming,”
This will not be the only Android phone by BB having a physical keyboard. Earlier BlackBerry has released an interesting phone with a slideout keyboard called BlackBerry Priv. Priv was a great phone with a few let downs and quite a heavy price tag. The upcoming BlackBerry Android phone will have a fixed physical keyboard below the screen as we can see in the newly leaked photo below. The leaked photo showing the alleged BlackBerry phone with a physical keyboard running Android OS was leaked on Chinese social media platform.
As you can see in the photo, the phone seems to have a smaller display panel accompanied by a fixed BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard. There is a quite big and visible speaker grill above the screen accompanied by a microphone and quite a big camera opening. On the right side of the phone is a volume rocker below which you can see what appears to be a power button.
There is no info yet on what’s under the hood of the device but from the looks of it, it seems to be a mid ranger. Wait till the leaked specs start appearing on the internet, hey Evleaks! show us some magic.
