Leaked images of two upcoming BlackBerry smartphones codenamed “Hamburg” and “Rome” have surfaced online.
Unlike the Priv, the Hamburg will not include a physical QWERTY keyboard. The Hamburg will reportedly measure 146mm x 78mm and it appears the smartphone will be made out of metal. If that is indeed the case, then the Hamburg would be the first BlackBerry Android smartphone to feature a metal build. We can also see that the device has a prominent speaker grille on the bottom bezel. According to reports, the Hamburg will be a mid-range smartphone and is expected to be launched in 2H 2016 for around $400.
The Rome on the other hand will be similar to the Priv in that it too features a physical QWERTY keyboard. There is no slider mechanism though, the device has more of a Passport-like design overall. Unfortunately, no other details regarding the Rome are available currently.
