The fine folks over at BerryReview located a new patent from BlackBerry that shows a new design at a phone that’s unlike anything on the market. The phone, which is reportedly code named Visa and Victoria, will feature a, “Storable keyboard having a pivoting cover.”
With this new design, users will be able to use their phone like normal, with one row of physical buttons at the bottom, and when they need to type something out, they can flip out the other two rows of the keyboard and use them.
A three row keyboard means it will most likely be the same as the one on the Passport, which also means it might be usable as a trackpad as well.
BerryReview believes this phone will hit the market pretty quick with a release date of Q2 2015. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what else develops on this interesting device!
