New BlackBerry named London running new OS, BBX

There are reports coming that BlackBerry’s parent company, RIM, is releasing a phone named after the capital of England, London. Yes; it’s called BlackBerry London.

BlackBerry London is set to be the first BlackBerry smartphone with RIM’s new operating system, BBX. The new smartphone is set for the release in June 2012.

The phone wows us all with its 16GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, and 2-megapixel front-facing camera. According to The Verge, Blackberry London is reportedly “thinner than the iPhone 4”, the same source said the phone could be stood straight up on one of its sides. It’s more square/boxed than round/shaped.

The thumbnail image to the left was taken from The Verge, whose source supplied the photo. Pay no attention to the screen, as according to the same source it’s a still image.

As The Verge reported this could be a prank, and completely incorrect info and a fake image. Though their team has done a thorough check throughout the image for any technicalities which would suggest it is fabricated.

RIM will also be showing other devices set for sale in 2012, that would be low-end compared to the London.

If real, the BlackBerry London will be the first of its kind running BBX. We’re unsure at the moment how much better BBX is compared to the current OS running on BlackBerry devices.
