Images have surfaced on the internet, albeit not the best of quality, showing the new Torch 2 ahead of its anticipated release later this year.

A spokesperson for RIM said: “RIM doesn’t comment on rumour or speculation” in a short interview with T3.

There has already been a batch of images on the internet, seemingly showing the BlackBerry Touch but RIM declined to comment on their authenticity.

If rumours are correct the device will sport a metal back opposed to its usual crosshatched glass. Further specification has giving the Torch 2 a 1.2Ghz processor, 512MB of RAM, and Bluetooth 2.1. It is thought the handset will ship with the latest BlackBerry 7 OS designed for the greater processing power of the 1.2Ghz chip.

Will the Torch 2 put BlackBerry at the top of the smartphone world? Are the rumours true? Tell us your thoughts via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
