BlackBerry Android Phone Leaked Video Promo

BlackBerry’s first-ever Android phone is reportedly coming out in November but just about every mystery about the device has already been revealed months before its launch. @evleaks posted another leak of BlackBerry’s Android phone on Thursday and this time it’s a GIF of a promotional video intended to show off the device’s newest features, including an 18-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and a slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard reminiscent of the BlackBerry Torch models it released earlier this decade.

The new device is part of BlackBerry’s effort to show it’s possible to make Android secure enough to use for enterprise customers while at the same time delivering the kind of Google-centric experience that users have come to expect from Android phones.

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, a hexa-core 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 processor and 3GB of RAM.

We still have to wait a while before we get our hands on this device and BlackBerry likely won’t announce full details for at least another couple of months. That said, anyone who’s ever been curious about how BlackBerry would tackle Android will definitely want to check this out once it finally arrives.
