Renders for the Android-toting BlackBerry Venice show the device looking sleek in a variety of colors!
What makes the Venice interesting? Well, first, it's a BlackBerry smartphone that will be running on Android – and, judging by real-life picture leaks – it will be an almost pure version of the operating system, as no excessive skinning can be seen. Secondly, the phone appears to have its screen curved on both sides – much like the Galaxy S6 edge – though, it appears that the arcs are way too shallow for any edge-like functions to be present. Third, it's a phablet-class handset with a slide-out physical keyboard – you don't see that very often these days!
So far, we know of two colors that the Venice may be available in – black and white. But, a fan has recently created a few renders, showing us how sexy the phone could look in a variety of colors – white, aqua blue, purple, silver, red, and black. And, indeed, the images are drool-worthy. We can't say we expect BlackBerry would the phone in that many finish variations, but hey, we've seen a Ferrari-red limited edition for the Passport, so it's entirely possible that the Venice may get a similar treatment.
The BlackBerry Venice is expected to sport the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC, 3 GB of RAM, and an OIS-assisted 18 MP main camera. Price and release date are yet unknown.
