Today, a couple of gif videos have popped up on Twitter, showing the Android-based device in its full glory, once again from the same source.
The two videos posted on Thursday support the rest of the previously reported rumors about the BlackBerry Venice smartphone. It shows the same slider design that has been reported severally, a physical keyboard as well as an on-screen keyboard, and a speaker grille at the bottom that would remain visible even if the slider is closed.
The videos also show the rear circular camera of the BlackBerry Venice supported by a dual-LED flash setup, and a textured back panel, which 9to5Google reports might be a glass weave design similar to that of the BlackBerry Z30.
As for specs, the BlackBerry Venice slider smartphone is expected to feature a 5.4-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) display, a 1.8GHz hexa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 808 SoC, 3GB of RAM, an 18-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
In addition, other rumors have claimed that BlackBerry will be pushing up the 'Venice' slider smartphone's on-screen keyboard to be used whenever the user needs to quickly take down notes, or requires quick text input access. While the physical keyboard, which should be beneath the slider display, should be used in cases of heavy usage, sending mails being a prime example.
