Canadian handset maker BlackBerry in association with Porsche Design on Wednesday launched a new all-touch Porsche Design P'9982 luxury smartphone.

Though the price of the handset was not disclosed, BlackBerry said the device is fashioned from high-quality materials and features a customised version of its 10.2 operating system.

BlackBerry has also launched a second Crocodile model strictly limited to 500 devices globally, it said in a statement.

The P'9982, which extends the Porsche Design luxury brand's range of modern luxury smartphones, features a satin finished frame, complemented by a hand-wrapped genuine Italian leather back door.

"Engineered luxury meets powered performance -- what has been true for the first Porsche Design smartphone is even truer for the all-touch P'9882," Porsche Design Group chief executive officer Juergen Gessler said.
