BlackBerry ‘Vienna’ Leaks In Photos: BB’s Second Android Smartphone Ditches Sliding Keyboard

The BlackBerry Vienna has surfaced in live images, revealing that BlackBerry plans to adopt a more traditional design and ditched the sliding keyboard for its second Android smartphone. After recently releasing its first Android-powered smartphone, the BlackBerry Priv, the Canadian smartphone manufacturer had confirmed that more products would be launched shortly.

The BlackBerry Priv has reportedly witnessed a warm reception, and the company now seems to be preparing to launch its second Android smartphone, the BlackBerry Vienna. Renders of the BlackBerry Vienna shared by CrackBerry indicate that instead of the sliding keyboard featured in the BlackBerry Priv, the new Android smartphone would sport the traditional BlackBerry phone design with an always-present physical keyboard. The images show the BlackBerry Vienna smartphone sporting a candy-bar form factor with a full QWERTY keyboard of the same size as that of the BlackBerry Priv, but the handset appears slightly elongated to accommodate a touchscreen display. The leaked renders also show the BlackBerry Vienna's rear camera with LED flash as well as a front-facing camera. The charging port can be seen located on the left side of the handset above the trays for microSD and SIM cards and the volume button on the right side, while the power button is positioned on the left, according to Tech Times. The leaked renders show the BlackBerry Vienna in a range of colors such as blue, silver, orange and green, but it is not clear if the Android-powered smartphone will be available in all these colors when it arrives in the market. CrackBerry has not provided any specifications of the BlackBerry Vienna along with the renders, though the handset is expected to feature semi-stock Android with BlackBerry tweaks, a powerful camera and a large battery, according to TechnoBuffalo. There are also no details available about the release date of the BlackBerry Vienna. The company has yet to officially confirm the existence of the BlackBerry Vienna but is likely to announce details of its second Android smartphone in the coming weeks.
