BlackBerry has come back in the spotlight over the past couple of weeks as hype for its new device grows, it’s going to launch the Venice slider smartphone in the near future, this device was first shown off by the company at Mobile World Congress 2015. There’s hype for this handset because it’s going to be the first BlackBerry that runs on Android. Today purported BlackBerry Venice specifications have been leaked alongside a new picture of the handset.
It’s not like the design of this handset hasn’t already been leaked, in just the last few days multiple pictures of the BlackBerry Venice have been leaked online showing us just how this slider smartphone looks like.
BlackBerry Venice is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with 3GB RAM, tout an 18 megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and a battery north of 3,000mAh. A 1,440×2,560 pixel resolution Quad HD display is also said to be present.
The source quoted in the report claims that the Venice is “an amazing device,” and that “security is second to none,” which does seem plausible, since BlackBerry CEO John Chen has already said that the company wouldn’t make an Android phone if it couldn’t make the device secure enough.
BlackBerry Venice is expected to be launched this November, all four major carriers in the country are reportedly going to carry it.
