BlackBerry Android Phone Leaked Photos

BlackBerry will likely release its first-ever Android phone later this year and now CrackBerry has posted some new leaked photos of the new device. Among other things, it looks like the new phone will feature an Android version of the BlackBerry Hub messaging center and an 18-megapixel camera.

The picture above shows the Android version of BlackBerry Hub. As you can see, it delivers all your messages not just from your email but also Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networks.

From a design perspective the BlackBerry Android, which has been code named “Venice,” features a display with edges that wrap around the side that are a bit reminiscent of the edges of the Galaxy S6 edge. The device also supposedly has a slide-out physical keyboard as well, although we can’t see that in any of the leaked photos posted by CrackBerry.

As far as other features go, an earlier report from N4BB stated that the phone’s specs include a 5.4-inch quad HD display, an 18-megapixel camera, a hexa-core 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 processor and 3GB of RAM.
