BB10 QWERTY device, BlackBerry 10 keyboard, RIM Research in Motion

Not too long ago, we saw a leaked photo of RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry 10 N-Series smartphone from the back (shown above), and a new photo leaked earlier today is giving the world a proper viewing of the front.

A post on Chinese site cnBeta revealed the handset, which will offer a capacitive touchscreen alongside a QWERTY keyboard, but unfortunately, that’s all we know at the moment, as the posting doesn’t offer any further details.

The phone features an appearance very similar to some of the Bold devices we’ve seen come out of the RIM offices in the past, but has a display that is larger by a significant margin. In addition, the keyboard is straight rather than curved like most other BlackBerry devices.

RIM is expected to launch the N-Series smartphone alongside a the already leaked L-series touch device at its BlackBerry 10 launch event for the press on January 30th.
