BlackBerry is not slowing down after releasing the slider phone Priv, which apparently is on high demand forcing a delay in the shipment date of new orders. Meanwhile, the Canadian tech giant’s second Android device codenamed “BlackBerry Vienna” is now garnering all the attention. Not long ago, BlackBerry CEO John Chen acknowledged that the company has several products lined up after Priv.
CrackBerry apparently picked up a slew of photos pertaining to the upcoming BlackBerry Vienna. The alleged new handset has a traditional bar design unlike the BlackBerry Priv, where the company used a daring design philosophy by bringing in the retro slider.
According to GSM Arena, the Vienna looks like a mix of BlackBerry Classic and BlackBerry Passport. However, the device does not look square, as in the Passport. It apparently comes with a 3:2 screen. This size is believed to help the handset in not compromising the efficiency experienced in the Passport’s display, even though it doesn’t look square. Not to forget, many critics weren’t impressed with the square design, although the handset carried top-of-the-shelf configurations.
Speaking of exterior, the BlackBerry Vienna’s back has the company logo and the panel is subtly textured or patented, similar to the BlackBerry Leap. GSM Arena, meanwhile, said the back cover may not be removable, as there is a card slot on the left side of the device. The phone will apparently come in four different hues namely White, Black, Dark Blue and Red.
