So we have been hearing a bit about the BlackBerry Venice as of late. According to a recent rumor, the handset is said to be destined for T-Mobile’s network, but for those who aren’t on T-Mobile and have no plans to switch carriers, you can rest easy because according to a tweet by @evleaks, the handset is expected to be headed to all four major US carriers.
This includes T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. @evleaks also claims that the device will be launched in November, meaning that we still have to wait a bit before we can get our hands on the device. Along with his tweet, @evleaks also included an image above which has us a little confused about the device.
Some rumors claim that the BlackBerry Venice will be an Android-powered handset, but the images above seems to suggest that it might be running on BlackBerry OS 10. It is possible that the image of the Android mascot and Google Play might simply indicate that the device will have access to Google Play apps and services, but we can’t be 100% sure of that.
In any case from what we’ve seen in leaks so far, we have to admit that the BlackBerry Venice looks like a pretty sweet-looking handset. If the renderings are true, it will feature a dual-edge curved display and a slideout keyboard. Take it all with a grain of salt for now, but check back with us later for more details.
