The Canadian phone maker is rumored to be working on two Android smartphones but the current device of interest is codenamed Venice. This touch-screen slider has ignited gossip of an Android-equipped re-embodiment of the BlackBerry Torch.
At MWC 2015 BlackBerry popped a surprise when BB exec Ron Louks pulled a mysterious curvy device out that appeared to be running BB10 but didn’t say much about it. He only teased that it was on the roadmap for the future.
'Pocket-Lint' first heard the name BlackBerry Venice in April. Then in July Evan Blass (@evleaks) posted and image of the device running Android. It had distinctly curved edges to the display and a stylish speaker bar. So far indications are that it’s fairly big but no word on dimensions. Given that the term “slider mechanism” has been mentioned repeatedly, it will surely have a metal frame.
Feature speculation places it in the top-tier and Androids with a 504-inch display, curved edges and a resolution of 2560 x 1440. Powered by a 1.8GHz 64-bit hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor and 3GB RAM, 18MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras.
Expect this creation to make marketplace entrance mid-November 2015 and mark these words “it will surely command much attention”.

BlackBerry seems to be able to re-invent itself at will and do it with style. Some actually thought there would be no BlackBerry in the market today. But for millions smartphones all look exactly the same, a confusing phone they wish they understood.
