The full unveiling will happen on February 25th at MWC in Barcelona, where we should hear more about the phone.

The newest rumors suggest that the device will feature the Sony IMX378 sensor on the rear, which is the same one use by Google for Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. This would mean that BlackBerry's phone could have a 12MP camera and support 4K recording.

The front camera is expected to come with 8MP. Previous leaks also mention 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Of course, there is also a physical keyboard onboard.
