According to recent reports, BlackBerry’s Venice gets new name: BlackBerry Priv. This is the first Android-based smartphone that the U.S. company is producing after releasing many models that were compatible only with their operating system.
BlackBerry has enjoyed a massive wave of publicity after President Barack Obama was photographed while using their early model of smartphones. Yet, Samsung and Apple have gradually shadowed BlackBerry as they released more attractive versions of phones.
BlackBerry is determined to make a strong comeback this year with a new version of Venice phone, called the Priv. The name was finally revealed on Thursday when the company made the final announcement. The information has ended a long series of Internet rumors related to the tech and OS specs of the new smartphone.
According to the developer, the Priv prototype will work with Android’s latest OS and will live up to the highest smartphone features at present. BlackBerry has provided their new models with an impressive camera of 18 MP and a 5.4-inch screen, which make the device the best platform for video and gaming activities.
The 1.8 GHz Snapdragon processor provides the right support for video activities, as well. Customers will have 3GB of RAM, which is a fairly reasonable capacity, if we don’t compare it with other available options on the market.
Customers still have to wait before they can finally purchase the new smartphone Priv as the company did not provide any information on the launching date. No word was posted, either on the price ranges of the smartphone, but the company promises to keep fans up to date once the product is ready for launching.
BlackBerry has succeeded in triggering customers’ curiosity when they first announced that their Priv model will be a combination of an Android-based device and a physical keyboard smartphone. Apparently, executives prefer physical keyboards and BlackBerry is working to provide them the best solution. This comes only natural, considering that CEOs make up for great part of BlackBerry’s customers.
