First specs, render of the BlackBerry Oslo leak: Passport-like squarish design and QWERTY keyboard in tow

First specs, render of the BlackBerry Oslo leak: Passport-like squarish design and QWERTY keyboard in tow
After stealing the spotlights for a while with its unorthodox BlackBerry Passport handset, the Canada-based smartphone maker has most probably explored the possibility to offer a refreshed follow-up to the smartphone. 

Well, if the most recent rumors circulating in the Interweb are to be believed, the John Chen-led company might soon come up with a successor to the Passport indeed. 

BlackBerry Central got hold of a BlackBerry device dubbed "Oslo" and it is speculated that it will arrive with mostly the same internals as its predecessor, namely a Snapdragon 800 SoC, an LCD display with a resolution of 1440 x 1440 pixels, as well as a 13MP camera with OIS and a 3,450mAh battery at the rear. 

It is also said that some of this and the rest of the undisclosed specs are a subject of improvement, but frankly said, that is a no-brainer. Apart from the specs, BlackBerry Central seems to have a purported official image of the BlackBerry Oslo. 

According to the hearsay, the device might get officially announced on June 30 and is said to be aimed at the global market. Word on the street is that the BlackBerry Oslo has been unveiled to a select audience and in utmost secrecy at last month's MWC event in Barcelona.
