New BlackBerry phones leaked in Vietnam: Where’s the official announcement?

RIM may have teased on Twitter earlier this week, but it didn’t follow through with any new information on the next generation of BlackBerry handsets.

Thankfully, the guys over at Vietnamese tech site Sohoa are more than happy to reveal some pictures and details on two phones, already spotted on a plan for BlackBerry launches also leaked earlier this year.

What looks to be the BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 and Monza 9860 (or Storm 3) are here.

The Monza is all about the touchscreen, with a 3.7-inch display and metallic frame.

On the back, you’ll find what’s said to be a five-megapixel shooter with flash, and unofficial spec sheets suggesting it’ll be capable of high-definition video recording. Sounds about right.

There’s a microUSB port and headphone socket, though there’s still not much BlackBerry OS 7 action here; we’ll have to have a play on one ourselves to see how that really fares.

The Torch 2 on show doesn’t pack the new version of BlackBerry OS, but confirms the improved screen resolution, now upped to 640×480 pixels, and a 1.2 GHz processor. Like the Monza model, you’ll find a five-megapixel camera with flash on the back.

Check out Sohoa’s Storm 3 preview video for some hands-on action.
