We came across many rumors about the BlackBerry's Android powered smartphone. Recently a concept design was spotted online, showing a full touchscreen device similar to the Z10 design but running on Android platform.
New rumors, however, claimed that the Canadian smartphone maker will launch at least two Android-based smartphone this year. These will include BlackBerry Venice, a high-end smartphone featuring a slider with a curved Quad HD screen, and the BlackBerry Prague which will be a low-end smartphone and resemble the BlackBerry Z3.
But, @evleaks has tweeted out a new image of the rumored Android-powered BlackBerry. The device in the image doesn't look like a slider and neither like the Z3 smartphone. Instead, it resembles the BlackBerry Passport, which sports a 3-row keyboard.
If the leaked image is to be believed, than the BlackBerry's next Android smartphone could probably come with high-end features, and be placed at a higher price point.
The images just give a glimpse of the lower half of BlackBerry's upcoming Android smartphone. It shows capacitive buttons on the display suggesting that the handset runs Android Lollipop.
Meanwhile, rumors so far have suggested that the BlackBerry Prague will be the first Android smartphone by BlackBerry, that will feature all touch display, similar to the Z3. BlackBerry is expected to launch its first Android powered Prague sometime in August ahead of the launch of the Venice and targeting the Prague at emerging markets.
