Redesigned BlackBerry London leaks, will be the world’s first BlackBerry 10 smartphone
Back in November of last year we saw the first purported picture of the BlackBerry smartphone codenamed London, that was going to be the company’s first smartphone running BBX, the next generation operating system inspired by the QNX powering the PlayBook.
More than two months have passed, and many things have changed since then. First of all, BBX got rebranded to BlackBerry OS 10 because of some trademark issues, and the BlackBerry London seems to have lost its initial design very reminiscent of that seen in the Porsche Design BlackBerry P’9981.
What you can see above is how the London looks now, apparently. We have previously heard that the London will arrive on the market around September, which is still a long time from now, so maybe the design could change again.
Hardware-wise, both TI and Qualcomm 1.5 GHz dual-core processors are being tested. It also looks like the London may be launched in the UK first, and other BB 10 devices will make their way to the US. We’ll see.
