BlackBerry Venice, 5.4-inch Android phone available soon?

Popular tipster @evleaks has released some fresh news for the supposed Android-powered BlackBerry device that made some buzz on the Internet last month. The device will reportedly be called Venice and could feature a physical QWERTY keyboard that slides out — pretty much like what was previously reported.


BlackBerry “Venice” rumored specs:
5.4-inch QHD display @ 960 x 540 resolution
1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 processor
18MP rear camera
5MP front camera
Android OS
Sliding physical QWERTY keyboard


The tipster even posted a follow-up photo showing a BlackBerry Passport-like device which runs on Android based on the layout and design. In addition, he also mentioned that it’s bound for American telecom AT&T.


What do you think of this BlackBerry “Venice” if ever it pushes through? Would you be interested?

    Looks good. The sliding keybord? Hmmm not very excited about that.
    But its android base OS. Which makes it sound interesting.
    Specs are all good.
    Lets see the price…

    is it QHD or qHD? a snapdragon 808 seems overkill for a 540p screen

    physical qwerty and on screen keyboard at the same time? very counter-productive. i’m going to go with fake on this one.

    Actually I’m not after with the device but rather on the os itself. I bought my BlackBerry not because of the hardware but because of the os itself.

    Bibilhin ito basta medyo maka-masa ang price.

  8. me says:

    Sliding physical keyboard that will easily break combined with an expensive flex replacement 2-3 times a year? No thanks!

      De wag gamitin yung sliding keyboard, for sure merong on screen keyboard yan. Duh

    I’m very interested.
    Sana below 20k lang price to.

    Naka SE Xperia Pro ako for 3 years now. Never pa nasira yung keyboard nya pero mabagal na sya.

    Need a new Android with a physical keypad.
