New leak shows us the phone that won’t save BlackBerry

BlackBerry Magnum Leaked Pictures

BlackBerry is not quite ready to roll over and die, but phones like the BlackBerry Magnum shown in a fresh set of leaked images won’t make its fight for survival any easier in a world dominated by iOS and Android devices. CrackBerry has found a few pictures on Weibo that show a Bold-like BlackBerry Magnum, although it’s not clear whether such a device will launch anytime soon.

Very old reports detailed a BlackBerry Magnum handset that was eventually scraped, with the phone being “essentially a mix of the Bold 9000 and a BackBerry Storm.”

These new images show a BlackBerry smartphone that packs both a touchscreen display and a full QWERTY keyboard, and it’s apparently based on the Bold 9900. “Judging from the images, it looks like BlackBerry scrapped the 9000 design and in this case built out a Bold 9900 version of the Magnum with a bit of BlackBerry Q10 flavor by removing the tool belt for testing purposes,” CrackBerry notes.

Interestingly, BlackBerry has recently confirmed the Bold 9900 will make a triumphant return, which could explain the new image leaks. At around the same time, many reports analyzing the current smartphone market revealed that BlackBerry’s market share in the U.S. – one of the most important smartphone markets in the world – is currently somewhere just above 1%.

The images showing the BlackBerry Magnum prototype in all its thickness follow below.
