Pictures of what is believed to be the next BlackBerry smartphone with a keyboard are making the rounds on the Internet.

The photos, which were posted on the Web earlier this week by Chinese website cnBeta, show a BlackBerry device with a full QWERTY keyboard.

The images posted on cnBeta also show the device has a taller touch screen than previous BlackBerry phones that have also had both touch screens and full keyboards.

The expected Blackberry phone with full keyboard is believed to be one of two devices that the Canadian tech company Research In Motion will unveil next month at launch events for BlackBerry 10, the next version of its mobile operating system.

The other device is expected to be a touch-screen smartphone with no keyboard. Pictures of it have also previously made their way onto the Internet.

According to CrackBerry, the touch-screen device is expected to be called the BlackBerry Z10 while the device with the QWERTY keyboard may be called the BlackBerry X10.
