As Evan says in the above tweet, it’s important to keep in mind that the finished V30 phone could look entirely different from these renders. That being said, this design is definitely intriguing; it has the slide out mechanism of the Blackberry Priv with a touchscreen in place of a physical keyboard.

This actually reminds me of the original Barnes & Nobile Nook, which had a small touchscreen below its primary e-ink display. Of course, that was more out of necessity, as the e-ink screen wasn’t touch-capable. Hopefully we’ll see more leaks of the V30 in the months approaching its release.
