The BlackBerry Classic is the subject of even more photographs
Earlier today, we showed you a few pictures of the BlackBerry Classic, and mentioned some leaked specs belonging to the device. Now, we have a number of new photographs that show off the upcoming model. Unlike the BlackBerry Passport, which is the company's top shelf business-centric phone, the Classic is suited for long time BlackBerry users who are more interested in merging the old-school features like a trackpad and function keys, with the latest version of BlackBerry 10.

This would be the third new handset offered by BlackBerry since John Chen came aboard. This includes the BlackBerry Z3. This model was the first to roll off the Foxconn assembly line as part of an agreement BlackBerry has with the contract manufacturer. Foxconn designs, builds and stores these entry-level devices, while BlackBerry installs the software and handles marketing. These phones are made for emerging markets only.
The BlackBerry Passport is the second new model to launch during the Chen era, and it has been hard to find. The 1440 x 1440 screen is perfect for viewing charts, websites, and reports. The long battery life allows the phone to stay powered throughout the business day. Chen has already committed BlackBerry to produce a sequel of the phone.

And that leaves the BlackBerry Classic, expected to launch next month. This is Chen's offering for the die-hard BlackBerry fan, who remembers the good old days when the word smartphone was synonymous with BlackBerry. Check out the BlackBerry Classic, including the old school trackpad and function keys, in the series of photographs below.
