The BlackBerry “Oslo” was revealed with a series of leaked photos on Tuesday courtesy of N4BB. This is the first time we’re getting a look at the actual device, though we saw a few renders back in April. Overall the Oslo looks like a simplified version of last year’s Passport with a beveled rubber back and a redesigned camera.
On the spec side of things, the BlackBerry Oslo will reportedly pack a Snapdragon 800 processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 3GB of RAM and a 3450mAh battery. Like the Passport, the new phone features a square display, though there’s no word on its exact size of resolution. It also looks like the Oslo might pack a fingerprint reader on the back, but we’re not certain that’s what we’re looking at in the image above.
N4BB notes that the Oslo might not get a global release. Instead it could be a Chinese version of the BlackBerry Passport. In that case the phone may not merit a huge public announcement, though we’ll still be on the lookout for any more news for the upcoming QWERTY device.
