BlackBerry Venice Leaks, Again

More leaks of the BlackBerry Venice are published online.

BlackBerry needs to innovate. Thankfully, the company's current CEO, John Chen, is a master of turnarounds. Since taking over, Chen rebranded the phone maker, dropping RIM and taking the BlackBerry name instead.

At this year's Mobile World Congress, Chen unveiled a new breed of keyboard-touting phones. But one touchscreen device, which sported a dual-curved display, a physical keyboard, and a slider, raised eyebrows. Many were intrigued because BlackBerry didn't reveal the name of the phone.

Rumors of a BlackBerry running Android have been spinning around for years. In June, sources revealed that the company is working on an Android slider phone, which will have a touchscreen and physical keyboard. And then, the name “Venice” was leaked earlier this month.

The leaks continued yesterday, thanks to a slew of images of the purported BlackBerry Venice. Then more up-close images were published on a Vietnamese website, showcasing the Android-operated Venice. This is where things get interesting.

A close examination of the images of the purported device reveals dual-edged folded display and a gorgeous QWERTY keyboard. It is also evident that the phone is running on a customized Android OS (there are rumors that Venice will run Android under a BlackBerry 10 UI).

Another interesting characteristic is the design of the device. The picture, for example, shows the SIM card and microSD slots on top of the phone. On its back are dual-LED flash modules and a rear camera (probably an 18-megapixel shooter) with OIS and Fast Focus technologies.

Speaking of more rumors, the BlackBerry Venice will reportedly sport a 5.4-inch quad-HD display. Some say BlackBerry tapped Samsung or LG for the screens. Other expected features include a 5-megapixel camera, a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 chip with a 3GB RAM.

BlackBerry declined to comment on the leaked pictures.
