BlackBerry announced the company’s new product in this year’s MWC (Mobile World Congress) which was held in Barcelona in March. The new product is called BlackBerry Venice. It is rumored that BlackBerry Venice will come with two versions, Android and BB10 OS.
BlackBerry Venice is reported to operate on 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset with 1.8GHz hexa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM and two cameras, the front camera is having 18MP while the back camera is having 5MP. The display screen is measured 5.4-inch with curved edges, similar to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and a resolution of 1440 x 2560. On top of that, the device will be featuring a sliding down keyboard.
The processor that is going to be used by BlackBerry Venice is rumored to be the same with the one that is used for LG G4. The reason on why LG G4 is using this processor is that the updated version of octa-core Snapdragon 810 is not available yet.
With BlackBerry Venice, hopefully, it will boost up the sales figure for BlackBerry again since there are still a lot of business users who prefer to use BlackBerry and there are a lot of Android users who still prefer to use a physical keyboard rather the on-screen keyboard.
There is no further confirmation whether BlackBerry is going to use full Android version as offered by Google or the company is going to create another OS version which is based on Android. BlackBerry Venice is rumored to be released in November 2015.
