BlackBerry 'Athena'

Following the earlier renders that appeared online of the BlackBerry 'Athena', a new and likely more accurate batch of images of the device has now appeared thanks to China's TENAA)/WSFW/LicenceShow.aspx?code=FcgXLBaLjJ5YTpgM8h1u%2b4J7m9MFozEm3wLE%2b655GRjJ1UVywl1ekwW4exOicRS%2b) office. For the most part, the new images line up with the ones that appeared earlier with a few subtle refinements to the keyboard.

Gone is the BlackBerry logo from the spacebar and the keyboard overall has a different layout introducing a new button. As I noted before on the earlier images, buttons have all been moved to the right-hand side, SIM and SD Card slot has been moved to the left-hand side. There's now USB-C at the bottom while retaining the 3.5mm headphone jack at the top. Finally, there is the dual-camera setup.
