BlackBerry Venice appears in promo teasers

We’ve seen numerous pictures of the BlackBerry Venice over the past few weeks, and now we have video of the device in action. Shared by Evan Blass, the two teasers appear to be promos for the upcoming Android BlackBerry; one shows off the phone’s hardware—camera, design, thinness—while the other is a little more focused on the device’s software and keyboard.

The first video seems to indicate there might be two different versions of the same device, perhaps one running BB10 and the other running Android. That’s just pure speculation on my part, though from what we’ve seen in previous leaks, this will solely be an Android affair. The same video also appears to confirm the device will use a multiple lens arrangement for the camera, along with fast focus.

The other video gives us a look at the device head on, very briefly showing an icon for the Play Store at the top. That all but confirms the presence of Android on BlackBerry’s upcoming flagship, along with the fact that it’ll feature a sliding mechanism to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard.

The Venice is supposedly going to hit all four major U.S. carriers in November, though an exact date or price hasn’t yet been revealed. As for specs, rumors have claimed the phone will sport a 5.4-inch Quad HD screen, a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor clocked at 1.8GHz, Adreno 418 graphics, an 18-megapixel camera with fast focus, and 3GB of RAM.
