BlackBerry Venice Black - Expert Reviews

Introduction

BlackBerry has of late attempted to change things with unique designs and more entertainment oriented interface, so as to match up to the prowess of Android based smartphones. Last heard, BlackBerry has been toying with the idea of bringing in a new Android based gadget, a massive shift for a firm that is based on its inhouse developed OS by the name of RIM. The new device might be called BlackBerry Venice that will use Android or the latest BlackBerry OS. However, BlackBerry's chance of hitting a high mark will increase manifold if it chooses to go with the Android platform - the trending OS with customers. Also, BlackBerry Venice price in India would be on the higher side considering the firm is looking set to compete against top firms like Apple and Samsung.

Design

BlackBerry Venice will bring back the old slider design with a new keyboard under the main screen. And being a BlackBerry gadget, the slider keyboard will have the QWERTY keypad with hard keys, which should provide far more accuracy while typing as compared to the touchscreen. However, the touchscreen option would remain as well but as expected, the overall build and design of the smartphone would look quite beautiful and will give a premium feel when held in hand. The shape of the gadget is going to be clean and quite elegant. The curves on the sides would allow users to hold the smartphone with ease without the risk of the device slipping away.

Display

BlackBerry Venice is said to feature a 5.4 inches quad HD display, which is a big size indeed considering the kind of display sizes BlackBerry smartphones had dished out since its inception. Therefore, it is clear that BlackBerry is looking to shake things up and with a massive display size; BlackBerry Venice can certainly become the winning device from BlackBerry. We would keep BlackBerry Passport as the reference point for BlackBerry Venice and keeping that in mind, we expect nothing short of 453ppi of pixel density for the latter. In fact, BlackBerry may up the ante and come out with a 500 or even 550ppi of pixel density, delivering absolute clarity in terms of image quality.

Camera

BlackBerry is expected to raise the bar in the camera department as well by offering a massively powerful 18 megapixels primary camera along with a 5MP secondary camera. Although, the primary camera looks heavily backed up, in the past we have seen that even a high pixel strength from BlackBerry devices did not necessarily correspond to similar level of image clarity as some of the other Android devices. However, we expect BlackBerry to scale things up this time around.

The secondary front camera should do more than a decent job as well by providing crystal clear selfies with its 5MP camera that would run on a resolution of 2592 by 1944 pixels.

Processor

BlackBerry Venice is said to be powered by a powerful 1.8GHz hexa-core processor from Snapdragon 808 64-bit. On paper, the hardware seems extremely powerful and if we add 3GB of RAM to the mix, BlackBerry Venice will become the most powerful BlackBerry smartphone known till date, which should auger well with the users. The given configuration would allow BlackBerry Venice users to tackle multitasking with complete ease and grace without any lag whatsoever. The enhanced RAM will be ideal to play some of the most demanding games in the Android circuit.

Operating system and UI

It is not known for sure as to which software platform BlackBerry Venice would be using as there are rumors that the smartphone can become the first Android handset from BlackBerry. However, we would not be surprised if BlackBerry Venice runs on the latest BlackBerry 10.3.1 OS and hold the Android plans for other upcoming devices. The user interface would also depend upon the type of operating system used.

Connectivity

We can expect BlackBerry Venice to deliver top notch elements in the connectivity section including the basic ones like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS, Wi-Fi hot spot etc. Tethering facilities with the smartphone may further include the likes of dual band, Wi-Fi direct and DLNA.

Sensors

BlackBerry handsets have generally introduced essential sensors and with BlackBerry Venice, users can expect the likes of accelerometer sensor, compass sensor, gyro sensor and proximity sensor. The presence of such sensors would enable the users to swipe through the display at a much faster pace and obtain prompt results as far as responsiveness is concerned.

Memory

There is no information on the amount of memory that BlackBerry Venice would provide but if BlackBerry Passport is to be taken as a benchmark, the smartphone should have at least 32GB of built-in space and a 128GB microSD card slot for further expanding the external memory. This would allow users to store tons of data including songs, images, games, videos and other applications.

Battery

Considering BlackBerry Venice is going to be the flagship model for BlackBerry, the battery strength should go beyond 3000mAh and since BlackBerry Passport had a non-removable battery of 3450mAh, we can expect the company to at least touch that figure.

As far as the talk time and standby time are concerned, expect BlackBerry Venice to deliver at least 18 hours talktime for 2G and 432 hours of standby time. For 3G, the talk time could go up to 23 hours while the standby time could go up to 444 hours.

Other Features

So far what we have seen is that the device will be available in the colors of Black and White where both of them will look beautiful. The gadget will feature a QWERTY keypad which is the signature BlackBerry feature. The device is expected to support NANO SIM, which has been the case in previous BlackBerry flagship models.
