Three unannounced BlackBerry models are photographed

Three unannounced BlackBerry models are photographed
BlackBerry continues to churn ahead with the development of new models. Images of three new, unannounced phones were published on Monday. The first one is the sequel to the BlackBerry Passport, known as the BlackBerry Oslo. We've seen pictures of this handset earlier this month.

Expected to feature similar specs as the Passport including the 1440 x 1440 resolution screen, we should see a Snapdragon 800 chipset under the hood, a 13MP back-facing camera with OIS, and a large 3450mAh capacity battery. The phone will employ the same contextually aware physical and virtual QWERTY with the extra keys on the screen showing up based on what you are writing. We could see this handset unveiled on June 30th.

The second model is the P'9984. BlackBerry faithful know that when they see that P' prefix, it means that a BlackBerry Porsche Design model is coming. This year, the Porsche Design phone will be modeled after the Passport, right down to that special QWERTY keyboard on the device done up in the futuristic Porsche Design style.

Lastly, there are multiple images of what is being called the BlackBerry Slider or the BlackBerry Venice. It appears to have a curved screen design and a front-facing speaker on the bottom of the device. With this narrow look and the code name Slider, the model could actually be a slider similar to the BlackBerry Torch 9810, which was released in 2011.

The BlackBerry Slider/Venice is top-shelf all the way from the 5.1-inch 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution screen, to the octa-core CPU. A 3650mAh battery keeps the lights on, and the phone would offer a 16MP rear-facing camera along with a 5MP front-facing snapper. This handset could make a debut this coming fall.

Which of the three handsets could you see your self sporting sometime later this year?
