You may recall that BlackBerry has decided to no longer make smartphones on its own. What the company has done is license its iconic brand to China-based TCL which will now manufacture and sell BB-branded handsets. The BlackBerry KEYOne is the first device to come out of this partnership and it appears that another is in the pipeline.

According to a new report, this as-yet-unannounced BlackBerry smartphone might feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor coupled with a Full HD display. The specs make it seem like this is going to be a bonafide mid-range smartphone.

There’s not much information available about this handset as yet. It may have a 5.2-inch 1920×1080 pixel resolution display if the report is to be believed, but it doesn’t offer more information about the device itself.

What we can reasonably expect is that this handset is going to be powered by Android as all BlackBerry handsets will now be running on Google’s OS. BlackBerry is no longer making smartphones that are powered by its proprietary operating system.

We can also expect the device to feature a full QWERTY keyboard which is something that BlackBerry has always been known for.

If this handset is really in the pipeline, we can expect to hear more about it in the coming weeks.
