This year, the Canadian company BlackBerry plans to introduce its first Android smartphone, which is likely to be named BlackBerry Venice. The smartphone will be equipped with a 5.7-inch screen curved at the edges, a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB of RAM, an 18-megapixel camera and a retractable QWERTY keyboard, like the BlackBerry Passport, including touch capabilities for managing gestures without having to touch the screen. Unlike the previous BlackBerry slider, the new device will become thinner. The author of the video notes that the device lies comfortably in the hand, and the slider mechanism works easily and smoothly. The software will include the BlackBerry Hub, Google services and universal search, allowing you to simultaneously search the web, contacts and all content on your smartphone. The announcement of new items is expected in November this year, and the start of sales will take place on the eve of the New Year holidays.
