OnwardMobility, the current BlackBerry smartphone licensee, announced in a press release in the middle of last year that it was working on a 5G BlackBerry smartphone with a physical keyboard. This new BlackBerry phone with Android OS was supposed to be released in the first half of 2021 in North America and Europe, but we haven’t heard anything yet.
The device will have a first-class camera, according to the CEO of OnwardMobility, who revealed this in an interview in March of this year. This prompted Concept Creator to create a series of renderings of BlackBerry’s upcoming 5G smartphone.
Graphic designer Niel D of Guangzhou, China, introduces a special BlackBerry concept on Behance called New B Berry.
- Samsung Galaxy S22 could feature vapor chamber cooling similar to gaming phones
- Xiaomi flip phone with the clamshell design similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has appeared
- POCO F3 GT will be a gaming-focused smartphone with a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor
- Asus XG Mobile eGPU for ROG Flow X13 Gaming Laptop Announced: Price, Specs
The device has the brand’s signature rounded edges, which, combined with the buttonless design and extremely narrow screen edges, give it a futuristic and contemporary appearance.
BlackBerry should reconsider the utility of a full keyboard, according to the designer. The concept smartphone has a QWERTY keyboard, but it is devoid of special characters. The buttons will appear slightly larger as a result, which will improve typing comfort.
It’s a display keyboard that, depending on the app, can display various types of content. It should also be possible to display an emotion-filled ‘Expression’ display keyboard. Music control, accept/reject an incoming call, and navigation is all possibilities in Neil D’s 3D renderings.
The back of the piece is frosted glass. A matte gold back panel with a black ‘New Berry’ logo was chosen by the designer. We have a very elegant combination with the gold keyboard letters and the black keys.
A single-camera, quite large in design, is located in the upper left corner. A small round LED flash is located below the camera. To take selfies, a perforated camera with a central position was chosen. Finally, at the bottom, there is a USB Type-C port.
For the time being, it’s impossible to say whether the new BlackBerry will look like this, but if it does, would you want a phone that looks like this?
