Could this be the BlackBerry Android phone we’ve been waiting for?
What’s happens when the Dell venue Pro and the Galaxy s6 edge have a baby? You will get Venice, the long rumored BlackBerry Android phone. And if this leak is to go by, we shall have a “dual curved display” just like in the s6 edge and a physical keyboard underneath that slides up just like the olden windows mobile Del Venue Pro . Renown smartphone leaker, Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) has posted a high-resolution render of the device, codenamed Venice, to Twitter.
The device shows the aforementioned display, curved at the sides plus a speaker at the bottom. The Venice runs Android instead of BlackBerry 10 and It also seems possible that there’s still a keyboard scurried away underneath that screen. The phone is expected to come with the full Google suite of apps and services and we hope it will be available internationally.

Last month, Reuters originally reported that BlackBerry would make the switch to Android. If this render proves accurate, it might well be coming soon. It’s been a very long time since there’s been a decent Android device with a physical keyboard.
