    As we've all seen there is a chrome Rim around the screen. I'm just hoping this is stainless steel and not painted plastic a la Bbos berries. Does anyone know what the material of that chrome Rim is?

    We will once one of us gets our hands on it -- or when we get a more in-depth review.

    I don't know of any BlackBerry that doesn't have at least one piece of silver/chrome painted plastic. Even the Passport SE.

    I would bet a pay cheque that it is not metal.

    EDIT: oops meant stainless, not silver.

    Silver would be impossible, because pure silver is very very soft metal

    Honestly, I hope it's actual metal. Samsung got away with using that fake chrome for the longest time and it always bothered me.

    Chen said this will be a premium device so I can't imagine them skimping on the metal.

    On a side note, I had a one plus one that I always thought had material made out of metal, turns out it was plastic. Did a good job at fooling me.

    I would actually love to see a smartphone made with copper.

    It's definitely metal. What type? No one without a device knows.

    But look at BlackBerry track record-all BlackBerry 10 devices (besides clearly budget ones- Leap/Q5/Z3) have been metal.

    I don't imagine at all that they would do plastic
