Renders for the Android-toting BlackBerry Venice show the device looking sleek in a variety of colors!
We've already seen enough leaks of the BlackBerry Venice to be next to certain that it will be coming out – unless it gets scrapped in the last moment, that is. Unfortunately, there is no official word on when BlackBerry intends to unveil it.

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.

Boy that looks gorgeous. I really hope this device gets all the success it deserves. I will probably give it a go.

These are renders from a designer named Pootermobile. He often does renders in multiple colors of BlackBerry devices.

Those are fan made, but maybe Blackberry may do more colors.

These are some sweet looking renders from Pootermobile! Would definitely be awesome if the Venice was released in all of these colors. BlackBerry, hurry up and officially announce what's going on with this rumored handset, please!

Nah, they can't win that title so long as LG is still making phones.

rendersssszzzzzzzzzzsnooze... But more shots of the actual device are always welcome. This has thrown a real spanner in the works of my nexus 5x / Z5c fight! The thought of being able to use a physical keyboard again... I can't wait to test it.

Now I just need to see a case that can fit this phone. Even the smallest drop looks like a death sentence here.

These are photoshopped! Blackberry doesn't have the marketing sense to have all these colors. I'm guessing the carriers MIGHT display one. Maybe.
