Vienna: BlackBerry's Next Smartphone Powered By Android

Not long after the world finally has the Priv in hand, internal renderings for the BlackBerry Vienna have surfaced.

A tipster emailed our friends over at CrackBerry, giving the public a first look at the unannounced device. At first glance, it looks a lot like a Silver Edition Passport, with some Priv-y features like the four-row keyboard. Clearly, the design is similar to the most recent Passport iteration, but you can see how the Leap and Priv have come together too. We checked in with some sources, and found out a little bit more about what's in store with this odd device.

According to a source, here's what we know:

  • 4.4" LCD Display 1920x1440 (4:3 or 3:2 AR)
  • 5.8" Height
  • 2.8" Width
  • 9.8mm Thick
  • Android 6.0 Launch OS
  • March / April Launch
  • Sub $400 USD Pricing
  • Lower-tier Device

We're also told this is esentially the Classic of their Android line. It's not a whole lot, but it will definitely give you a better idea as to what device you're looking at. If it wasn't obvious, the Vienna is a lower-end device - so if the Priv's Android experience is too expensive for your pockets, this may be the Android device you're after.

Remember, things are always subject to change - and we may not be looking at the final device. We're a couple months away from a launch, so take the above with a grain of salt.
