Leak: Another BlackBerry Android phone, this one called Vienna

BlackBerry may have another Android trick up its sleeve for those who prefer phones with a physical keyboard. Only this time, the keyboard doesn't slide out: It's always there.

Fresh off the official launch of the Priv, BlackBerry may have a slimmer follow-up phone that also runs Google Android software. According to Crackberry, which posted leaked renders of the design, the phone's internal code name is Vienna.


Vienna looks like the old BlackBerry Passport and new BlackBerry Priv got together and had a baby. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.

It does make for a long-ish phone but the hardware keyboard would always be available for those that want to use it.

That differs from the Priv, which has a hidden keyboard that slides out from under the display. With the Vienna design, the phone is likely slimmer than the 9 millimeter thick Priv.

There's little else information available other the reported phone renders at this time.

Look to the Priv, though, and you can largely guess what to expect: It would make sense for BlackBerry to take advantage of the same -- or at least, very similar -- set of components inside the Priv for us in the Vienna.

As a reminder, the Priv has a 5.4-inch OLED display with 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor paired with 3 GB of memory, and an 18 megapixel rear camera, to name a few specifications.
