BlackBerry’s ‘Venice’ caught roaming the streets of Toronto
Currently, the Toronto Film Festival is being held in Canada. Now through September 20, upcoming films are showcased prior to a larger release this year and next. But perhaps more interesting is that a phone from Canada’s most popular hardware manufacturer made multiple appearances.
That’s right, people spotted BlackBerry’s upcoming ‘Venice’ phone at the Toronto Film Festival.
The image above, provided by BerryFlow, shows what looks to be Google’s Messenger app running on the handset. What we cannot see is the physical keyboard that Venice has. As we all know, BlackBerry is known for sticking with physical keyboards to maximize productivity. Venice’s physical keyboard will actually be housed behind the display and slide out from the bottom when needed.
- 5.4-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) display with curved edges
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor
- 3GB of RAM
- 18MP rear camera with optical image stabilization and dual-LED flash
BlackBerry’s Venice will reportedly be available through Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint in November. Although Android 5.0 Lollipop will be at its core, BlackBerry is definitely going to make adjustments to Venice’s software to provide a unique experience. Just how many elements of the BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system are coming over is unknown, but we can assume that similarities will exist.
