Last week RIM mentioned that their upcoming BBX phones won’t look anything like the BlackBerry Bold, and judging by a photograph that recently found its way into the offices of The Verge, it looks like they weren’t joking around. The photograph shows a never seen before BlackBerry device, running a band new operating system that looks vaguely similar to QNX (PlayBook’s OS).
The phone has been given the codename London and is supposed to be released in June 2012. The phone’s specs are: a 1.5GHz TI OMAP dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. It is supposedly thinner than the iPhone 4 and roughly the same size as a Galaxy S2. According to the tipster, the phone can also be stood straight up on one of its sides.
While there’s no telling if it’s a cleverly faked photograph, but the folks over at BGR are corroborating with the report, so there should be some truth behind this phone. Regardless, we won’t be seeing it anytime soon so don’t hold your breath – at least not till next year. What do you think of the London?
