The rumoured BlackBerry Venice has leaked out in all its glory, showing the slider handset running Android.

There have been growing leaks in the past few weeks, but the latest photos to appear courtesy of Vietnamese website and leave little to the imagination, with a full gallery of images of this forthcoming BlackBerry. 

We've seen renders of this device previously, but this appears to be a pre-production sample of the handset. If you look at the photos of the front, you'll notice the pixellation at the edges of the display where the sample tracking code has been obscured so it can't be traced - the same as the BlackBerry Passport we saw running Android.

The BlackBerry Venice looks quite substantial, which it will need to be to support that sliding mechanism. It's rumoured to have a 5.4-inch display with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, with distinctive curved edges. 

The display slides up to reveal what looks like a conventional BlackBerry keyboard, meaning you get the best of both worlds – a decent sized touch display, as well as a BB keyboard.

The BlackBerry Venice is said to house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset and 3GB of RAM and run Android. Here we can also see the SD card slot for memory expansion. 

This BlackBerry Venice appears to be running Android Lollipop and there's an icon for BlackBerry Hub - something we've yet to see working on these Android handsets.

You can catch up with the rest of the BlackBerry Venice story right here. It's expected to launch in November 2015, and could garner a lot of interest from those who have been turned off by BlackBerry's recent offerings.
