BlackBerry London's makeover gets leaked

Images of the BlackBerry London leaked out last November, but today more recent images came out and the phone looks quite different.

In November, the new look for the upcoming BlackBerry London designed by Porsche was leaked to the Web . Photos of the metallic, angular smartphone surfaced along with information about the London being the first phone to run the QNX operating system.

Today, however, new photos of quite a different looking phone were leaked, according to CrackBerry. Looking strikingly similar to an iPhone, this new BlackBerry London is sleek and black with rounded edges.

"London is about changing the game," reads the BlackBerry marketing info. "Hardware & Platform, fused into one polished experience."

The London is the first BlackBerry 10, which is supposed to have a TI OMAP dual-core CPU running at 1.5GHz, as well as 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage, and an 8-megapixel camera.

According to Engadget, two other BlackBerry 10s--Milan and Colt--have been canceled, leaving the London as the only BlackBerry 10 device. Supposedly, the BlackBerry London is set to hit stores sometime this year.
