BlackBerry-the famous Canadian manufacturer- launches a new smartphone Franken BlackBerry especially for those who are missing the iconic physical keyboard by the company.
This physical keyboard is making an appearance with the slider that is attached to the device. The same design was carried out in 2007. But it is a bit difficult to gamble whether it will be able to grab the attention of the people or not.
BlackBerry Introduces Android Slider Phone-Franken BlackBerry
Notorious leaker Evan Blass shared the image of upcoming BlackBerry Android device recently on Twitter. This Franken BlackBerry runs stock Android. BlackBerry selected a more traditional 16:9 display for Franken BlackBerry instead of its tiny square-ish displays. Moreover the leaked image also shows that the slide-out keyboard is the one of its kind that BlackBerry have been released earlier.
But the downside about the phone is that it looks incredibly tall. Of course BlackBerry had to tilt the rendering angle a bit so that it doesn’t appear as tall as it seems.
The keyboard of Franken looks very flat as well. You might not get the good old BlackBerry’s feeling when you type on this device.
It will be further having a whopping 18-megapixel camera, a hexa-core 1.8 GHz Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM and most of all an Android powered operating system.
The device is said to make an official appearance sometime next month in the United States.
Blackberry has been working for past many years for getting its market status back by introducing new phones. According to a report the main focus of Blackberry’s company is to do better software and device management. Due to this Blackberry will be able to make its security services just as Android.
