BlackBerry to launch sliding 'dual-curved display' phone this year

BlackBerry took to the stage during Mobile World Congress to announce a new touchscreen slider handset.

The company didn’t go into any great detail when revealing the phone. We don’t know its name, how much it will cost, or when BlackBerry plans to release the unique device. However, BlackBerry did say that it has what it calls a "dual curved display."

BlackBerry was more forthcoming about its new mid-range touchscreen phone. The Leap has a 5-inch, 720p screen, with a dual-core Qualcomm processor. It is similar in specs to the likes of the Galaxy S4 or HTC One X. It is aimed at emerging markets and will go on sale first in Brazil and Indonesia for around $275.

Finally, BlackBerry said that it will launch a new Porsche Design device and another keyboard-based phone. But that is all that the company said regarding these handsets. It is keeping its cards close to its chest.
