BlackBerry’s upcoming device, the Venice, has been in the news for quite some time, and now a few more images have been leaked before its official debut, revealing the BB10-style virtual keyboard for the Android device. The image clearly shows that the handset will come with front-facing speakers, says a report from CrackBerry.

BlackBerry Venice's BB10-Style Keyboard In Leaked Image

Virtual keyboard shown

The BlackBerry Venice shown in the leaked images is similar to the ones shown in earlier images. The device comes with curved edges and a large display. The top edge of the device has the BlackBerry logo emblazoned on it. On the right side, we have the familiar three-button layout.

Regarding the features, the device is expected to come with a QUAD-HD screen of 5.4-inches and run on the powerful hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor clocked at 1.8GHz. It will have Adreno 418 graphics and 3GB of RAM. Previous leaks have confirmed that the device will come with a rear camera of 18 megapixels. The device will have a slide-out style keyboard as per rumors, but we have yet to see it.

For users comfortable with touchscreen typing, the device offers a virtual keyboard quite similar to the one used in BB10 devices, as revealed by the image. The BlackBerry Z10 and Z30 came with a terrific next word prediction feature, and hopefully the new keyboard will boast this feature too.
