The company's new handset will be powered by Google Android 5.1 and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor.

BlackBerry's head John Chen revealed last week they would launch an Android smartphone only after making it secure enough. Multiple rumors and leaks that hit the Web in the last week mention that BlackBerry Venice is powered by Android and should launch soon in the US via AT&T.

BlackBerry Venice will allegedly pack a 1.8 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit processor, no less than 3 GB of memory, a 5 MP front-facing camera and a generous 18 MP image snapper on the back. This smartphone is also expected to feature a dual-edge curved 5.4-inch QHD display with 1,440X2,560 pixels and to hit the market loaded with Android 5.1 Lollipop.

"The Android-powered BlackBerry Venice slider is AT&T-bound," notorious leakster evleaks posted on Twitter yesterday. Unfortunately, none of the above has been officially confirmed yet. We will keep you posted as we hear more about this, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
