Android-based BlackBerry Venice shows up on video, curved screen and sliding QWERTY keyboard included
Earlier today, we showed you new renders that allegedly present the unannounced BlackBerry Venice, which could become one of the very first BlackBerry smartphones to run Android.

Now, we can also take a look at what seems to be a short part of a BlackBerry Venice promo clip. Unveiled by @evleaks, the video shows the front, rear, and sides of the upcoming device. We can even take a look at its sliding mechanism, its full QWERTY keyboard, and its rear camera (which appears to be an 18 MP one with Optical Image Stabilization, phase detection auto focus, and dual LED flash). The video is embedded below, but you may have to wait a bit for it to load.

As previously rumored, the BlackBerry Venice seems to sport a slightly curved display, similar to the screens of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 edge+. The display should be a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) one. Other expected features include a 5 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor.

It's said that BlackBerry will release the Venice in November, with AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile all getting ready to offer it. So, who's interested in buying this Android-based BlackBerry?
