Mysterious BlackBerry BBE 100-2 Appears in FCC with No Camera Cut-Outs

TCL, the maker of BlackBerry-branded smartphones, was rumored to work on three new smartphones (codenames– Uni, Athena, and Luna). The Athena was confirmed to be the recently launched BlackBerry Key2, which means two yet-to-be-announced smartphones are in the pipeline. Another TCL-branded smartphone has passed FCC (Federal Communications Commission) certification dated July 23 with model number BBE 100-2.

The model number suggests the smartphone will be under BlackBerry branding. Connectivity features will be Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth, and NFC. It will be backed by a 2,900 mAh battery. The BlackBerry smartphone appeared on the benchmarking site GeekBench, revealing that the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset will power it clocked at 1.84 GHz. It is coupled with 6GB of RAM and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. It managed a score of 1,291 and 4,838 in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.

The FCC released images showing labels and the back view of the BB 100-2. The device has a flat bottom like the Key2. The top corners are completely right-angled and sharp, while the bottom corners are rounded. The white BlackBerry logo is there, but there seems to be no cut-out for the rear cameras and flash. Leave cameras; there is no power button or volume rocker either on the left or right side. This may be just a prototype version, and the company wants to keep it under wraps. The uneven edges and scratches further hint at that, or maybe BlackBerry has made an innovative tech like a pop-up camera or slider. The bottom line is we have no idea, and it could be an all-touch BlackBerry device eliminating the physical keypad.
