Meet the BlackBerry Oslo: an upcoming Passport-like smartphone
BlackBerry is seemingly getting ready to unveil a successor to the Passport, one of the company's most unique smartphones to date. Currently known as the BlackBerry Oslo, this alleged successor was first spotted in April, when a render of it showed up online. Now, the unannounced device can be seen in a series of live photos that allow us to take a better look at it.

Revealed by N4BB, the new photos show a device that obviously resembles the BlackBerry Passport (more exactly, the AT&T variant of it). The Oslo comes with a 3-row QWERTY keyboard, and a square-ish, 1440 x 1440 pixels display above it. Reportedly, the new device has the same quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor of the BlackBerry Passport, as well as a 13 MP rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3450 mAh battery.

It's said that the BlackBerry Oslo should be officially announced later this month, on June 30, and could be released shortly after that in Europe and Asia. Since the new smartphone doesn't pack the latest specs, we expect its price to be lower than the launch price of the BlackBerry Passport. But we'll see what happens.
