BlackBerry’s new Android powered Slider phone gets leaked


The previous purported BlackBerry Android device is quite meh and it looks like a Passport being forced to run on Android. Now twitter leakster @evleaks has returned with another image and this time it is another Android powered device that comes with a sliding QWERTY keyboard.

The image above looks more legit with a full stock Android interface and the screen has a dual-curve display like the Galaxy S6 edge. Underneath the screen is a grill which could possibly houses a speaker and at the bottom you’ll get a microUSB port and a head phone jack. So far the design matches the earlier BlackBerry Slider render which we saw a few months ago.

We can’t confirm at the moment but the new BlackBerry Slider device was rumoured to come with a 5.1″ Quad HD display that’s similar to the S6 edge and it will be powered by an Octa-Core processor, which is a first for BlackBerry. Other specs include a 16MP main and 5MP front shooter and a large capacity 3,650mAh battery. Hopefully we will get to see more of the device ahead of launch.

If they released an Android device that comes with a cool looking slider keyboard, would you be among the first in line to get one?
