BlackBerry will be back with Venice smartphone

The Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry will debut a new smartphone under the brand name Venice this fall. The new smartphone will have the hard task of attracting more customers to the BlackBerry brand and will include the traditional for the company QWERTY keyboard.

BlackBerry Venice will have a six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with two Cortex-A57 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.8 GHz. The smartphone will also integrate Adreno 418 graphics that will allow users to work with 4K content and will have support for LTE Cat 6 Advanced for up to 300 Mbit/sec of data transfer speed. The rest of the specs include a large 5.4-inch sensor display at Quad HD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels), 3 GB of RAM, an 18 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front shooter.

There’s no information on what kind of operating system the upcoming Venice will run but it might as well be the first Android-based smartphone to come out of BlackBerry. The device is expected in late 2015, probably in November.
