BlackBerry’s Android-running Venice smartphone gets seen in leaked image

It’s absolutely no secret that BlackBerry is currently busy developing an Android smartphone that has been codenamed Venice. After having heard lots of things about it over the past few weeks, we have now been greeted by a leaked image of the handset in question.

As can be seen in the picture down below, an on-screen keyboard which is very identical to the software keyboards that form part of other Android devices, is occupying space on the BlackBerry Venice’s screen. Besides, the triangular ‘Back’ button at the bottom is one more indication that it is Android that’s running the show for the smartphone.

The image has come via a forum post on CrackBerry. It also shows us that the phone’s display will be curved towards both its sides, just like the panels on the S6 Edge and the S6 Edge+. What it does not show us is the physical keyboard that will slide out of its body for giving hardened BlackBerry fans something more to cheer about.
