The initial pictures has been leaked and the sources are yet to confirm the news of the all new BlackBerry smartphone which is codenamed as 'Venice'. There was a time when Blackberry, the Canadian telecommunication and wireless equipment manufacturing company was on top of the lists of the best smartphones in the market. But with the Android and iOS revolution the BB has been believed to lost its charm, along with a market share of less than 1% at present. Now efforts are being plotted to revive the BB out of its ashes by focusing more on software and device-management systems.
Its been quite a while since several rumors has been floating on board, that BlackBerry is all set to release an Android phone soon which would be almost in-par with the current high-end smartphones available in the market. The much speculated phone is set to have a dual curved 5.4 inch QHD display with a pixel resolution of 1440 x 2560. The processor is said to be housed by a 1.8 GhZ hexa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 808 processor with a 3 GB RAM.
The 'Venice' will feature a 13 MP rear camera and a front facing 5 MP camera. BlackBerry has briefly exhibited their slider device 'Venice' at a Mobile World Congress which was held at Barcelona in March. The slider is combined with a touch screen and a physical keyboard which the users can use according to their preference.
Blackberry definitely believes to make a statement with the huge screened slider phone with a physical keyboard. Curved at the bottom just like a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge the pictures reveal that the speakers are located at the bottom front which many users are likely to appreciate. Down below lies the Micro-USB port and 3.5mm audio jack. The pictures also shows Google's various apps been scattered all along which means the phone has access to the wide range of Google's storehouse of interesting apps. It has been a very long time since the Android market has released a good slider phone with the support of a physical keyboard. If Blackberry manages to pull off the 'Venice' then they are here to stay for long.
The word is that AT&T US is being partnered with BlackBerry for the release. The 'Venice' definitely looks like it is there to stir a row in the current android market scenario.
Wishing you Good luck BB!
