But the device seen in the render below - posted today on Twitter by @evleaks - doesn't look like a slider, and neither like the Z3. Instead, it seems to resemble the BlackBerry Passport, which, just like this new handset, has a 3-row hardware QWERTY keyboard. If this is indeed a Passport-like handset, it's probably going to be a pretty wide device with high-end features (and also a high price).
The software buttons that can be noticed on the handset's display suggest that this BlackBerry is running Android Lollipop. Unfortunately, for now there's not much else that we know about the device.
Last month, BlackBerry CEO John Chen talked about the possibility of launching Android smartphones, mentioning that it would build one only if it could make it "secure enough." Seeing all the latest rumors, and now this new render, we're inclined to believe that BlackBerry managed to make Android as secure as it wanted to. We assume BlackBerry will soon announce something about all this.
