A integrate of weeks ago ZDNet’s Kevin Tofel posted some renders and all a rumored details of a BlackBerry Venice. Today, we see tangible photos of a arriving Android-powerered smartphone posted on the Tinhte website, apparently prisoner while in an aeroplane seat.
The photos endorse that a BlackBerry Venice will have a winding potion front arrangement that slides adult to exhibit a full hardware QWERTY keyboard. This form cause is reminscient of one of my favorite Windows Phones of all time, a Dell Venue Pro that we bought in 2011 and still possess today.
We see an 18 megapixel behind camera with OIS, twin LED flash, microSD label and SIM label slots on top, and expected energy symbol on a left. The volume buttons and probable BlackBerry Assistant/Google Now symbol are on a right. It doesn’t demeanour like a behind is removable so an integrated battery, identical to a BlackBerry Passport, is expected being used here.
The device is really using Android with a folder of Google apps in what appears to be a sincerely pristine Google knowledge device. One picture shows an app called BlackBerry Hub using as well. BlackBerry Hub is one of my favorite things about BB10 and we am giving critical care to purchasing a BlackBerry Venice if it launches in November, as rumored.
I wasn’t certain if a BlackBerry Venice was genuine or not given that all we have see until now were renders. It’s flattering transparent it’s an tangible device so who else is looking brazen to picking one up?
