A couple of days ago we saw a clear high-res render image showing the front panel of the unannounced BlackBerry Venice smartphone online, alongside some promo images of features via Evan Blass, also known as @evleaks. This time a couple of gif videos have popped up on Twitter, showing the Android-based device in its full glory, once again from the same tipster.
The two videos posted on Thursday corroborate with the rest of the previously reported rumours about the BlackBerry Venice smartphone. It shows the same slider design, a physical keyboard as well as an on-screen keyboard, and a speaker grille at the bottom that would stay visible even if the slider was closed.
The videos also show the rear circular camera of the BlackBerry Venice alongside a dual-LED flash setup, and a textured back panel, which as per 9to5Google might be a glass weave design as seen in BlackBerry Z30.
Couple of days before a full image of the BlackBerry Venice’s front panel came up on Twitter, showing some Android apps on the screen such as Google Play, Google+, Hangouts, Google Maps and Android for Work. Blass also mentioned that the device would be arriving on all four US carriers namely AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobiles, and Sprint starting November.
Based on earlier leaks and rumours, the BlackBerry Venice slider smartphone is said to feature a 5.4-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display, a 1.8GHz hexa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 808 SoC, 3GB of RAM, an 18-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
Earlier leaks also claimed that BlackBerry will be pushing its ‘Venice’ slider smartphone’s on-screen keyboard to be used whenever the user needs to quickly take down notes, or otherwise quickly require text input access. While the physical keyboard, which is seen to be placed beneath the slider display, is said to be used in cases of heavy usage, for instance when sending mails.
