A couple of days ago, we shared details that BlackBerry next smartphone Hamburg could be produced with a partnership of TCL. Though device will be manufactured by TCL-Alcatel but it will be released with BlackBerry branding. The rumour mill suggests that device could be based on Alcatel Idol 4 and its codename is Hamburg.
However, yesterday the first alleged glimpse of BlackBerry branded smartphone appears online via a twitter user the Malignant. According to him, the device official name will be NEON. The poster also stated that device will be having “partially” aluminum body which is pretty much in line what we heard before announce of Idol 4 and 4s.
Recently the alleged Hamburg smartphone passed through GFX Benchmark and the hardware specs of device are pretty much similar like the Alcatel Idol 4. Interestingly, company releases another Idol 4s smartphone which is rebranded variant of Vodafone smart Platinum 7.
Now if the images are accurate, then one thing is sure that upcoming BlackBerry mid-ranger Hamburg is indeed a rebranded version of Alcatel Idol 4 but whether it will be released as NEON or not or the device leaked by the tipster is accurate or not it yet to be confirmed. Once we have more info regarding the matter we will share it with you. Stay tuned.
