There has been a lot of talk about BlackBerry’s plan to manufacture Android mobiles. Last week John Chen, CEO of BlackBerry said in a statement that, “BlackBerry would make an Android handset only if it could make it secure enough. ” There have been a lot of leaks and rumors going around recently about Blackberry going the Android Way.
The latest leak by a reliable tipster @evleaks via Twitter says that, BlackBerry handset named Venice should soon be out running Android and will be launched by US Telecom operator AT&T possibly in November. He also posted an image of the upcoming BlackBerry Android phone which shows the lower front half of the phone and has a close resemblance to BlackBerry Passport.
Staying with the rumors and recent leaks, specs wise the BlackBerry Venice slider smartphone is said to have a dual-edge curved 5.4-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display, 1.8GHz hexa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 808 SoC, 3GB of RAM, an 18-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
BlackBerry is yet to make an official word on the ongoing developments. We are also not aware whether the BlackBerry Venice will be available in an unlocked version for other regions or will it if stay as an AT&T exclusive.
Reports also say that a low-end BlackBerry codenamed Prague could be made public in August before the Venice handset. A lot of stuff happening on the BlackBerry side hopefully, we get to see some great Android smartphones in the coming days.
