The sources also hint that BlackBerry could take Google’s code and completely revamp it into their own package. The company would be able to keep their flavor while giving all the advantages of the Android world to their users. Sounds exciting?

What is also confirmed is the fact that Venice will be a slider. Sliders as we all know were pretty amazing in the early 2000 but they are gone now. Will Venice be successful in bringing a new design? So far the design looks pretty amazing.

Rumors are that Samsung has helped BlackBerry with the design of the phone. Especially the screen design. The all-new Venice is likely to have a curved screen similar to that of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Not all details are out yet but sources confirm that it will be a 5.1 inch screen along with 16 megapixels rare and 5 megapixels front camera.
