It was only days ago that the BlackBerry Priv was officially released, and now images of what may be BlackBerry’s next Android phone have surfaced.
Renders of a device called the BlackBerry Vienna — likely a codename, like Venice was to the Priv — have made their way online courtesy of CrackBerry. The images show a candybar-style smartphone with what looks to be a large screen and a physical keyboard as well as physical navigation buttons. There are also some buttons on the sides, with the left side likely housing the power/lock button and the right side being home to volume buttons as well as a convenience key.
Unfortunately, there aren’t really any spec details available for the Vienna right now. It’ll be interesting to see if BlackBerry really does bring the Vienna to market looking like this, though. It’s certainly been a long while since we’ve seen an Android phone with this form factor, but BlackBerry’s got plenty of experience making phones like this, and this design could bring more BlackBerry fans over to the Android side. We’ll just have to wait and see.
