BlackBerry has no short-term plans to launch any new phones running BlackBerry OS. But the company is expected to launch a new Android phone or two this year, and now we may have an idea of what they’ll look like.


Leaked photos of two phones, allegedly code-named Hamburg and Rome, are making the rounds. The Rome has a physical keyboard beneath the screen, and looks a lot like the BlackBerry Passport… if that phone had a widescreen display instead of a square one.


This phone also could be the model that we saw leaked images of in November.

At first glance, the Hamburg phone looks like a touchscreen-only device. But as GSM Arena notes, it’s possible that there’s a slide-out keyboard hiding behind the screen, like the one BlackBerry uses for its Priv smartphone.


We don’t have detailed specs for the new phones yet, but the Hamburg is said to be priced under $400, which would make it much more affordable than the Priv, which has a list price of $650.
