The rumoured Blackberry Venice now has a more official name which focuses on privacy above all else.

Blackberry CEO John Chen has confirmed that the name for the new device will be ‘Priv’ which is shortened from ‘privacy’. The new Blackberry Priv will feature privacy as one of the core features, with a customised version of the Android OS designed to be more secure. Chen also revealed that the device will be available later this year, with more news due in ‘”the coming weeks”.

The Blackberry Venice is expected to include an 18 megapixel camera, 3GB RAM and a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor. This will put it on the same level as the LG G4. It’s expected to launch in November this year.
