The BlackBerry Venice smartphone powered by Android is indeed real, as a new short video shows promo clips of the device. The new video comes from Evan Blass, infamously known as the prolific tipster @evleaks.
The video is short but it shows off the device in all its glory. We get to see all the sides of the device along with the slider mechanism, the QWERTY keyboard and the supposed curved display. Thanks to inclusion of a huge display and a QWERTY keypad, the smartphone does look very bulky. The video also gives us a look of what might be a 18 MP camera with OIS and phase detection autofocus. You can check out the video here or below (It takes some time to load).
The BlackBerry Venice smartphone should be the first Android-powered smartphone from the beleaguered Canadian manufacturer. According to previous rumors, the BlackBerry Venice smartphone will come with some top of the line specifications. It’s said to be coming with a 5.4-inch Quad HD (2560x1440p) display, an hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor clocked at 1.8 GHz, 3 GB RAM, 18 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera.
Reportedly, BlackBerry plans to launch the “Venis” this November, so we will have to wait for more than a couple of months to get a look at the beastly device. Anyways, we are pretty sure the BlackBerry Android smartphone will find its place in the news, thanks to leaks and rumors. As always, we will keep you updated.
