The BlackBerry Priv preorder window started very recently in selected countries and the device retails at a price of $699 in the U.S. The ordered handset will apparently reach the door steps starting Nov. 6. Meanwhile, BlackBerry has uploaded a slew of videos showing the power of the retro handset with a slider keyboard.
Apart from the physical QWERTY keyboard, the BlackBerry Priv runs on Android Lollipop and it also boasts dual curved display on the sides. As it turns out, the Priv corresponds to "privacy" and "privilege," SlashGear reported. And the new video goes by the title "Priv is for Privacy."
The brand BlackBerry is known to give importance to privacy especially because of the enterprise crowd it was able to amass during its heyday. Therefore, it is quite obvious that the main agenda of the video is to spotlight the privacy features of the device. Meanwhile, another video uploaded by the Canadian tech giant points to overall features of the Priv by BlackBerry.
For those planning to give this handset a try, here is a quick summary of the BlackBerry Priv specifications. This flagship smartphone features a 5.4-inch display and 2,560 x 1,440 pixels QHD screen resolution, along with Corning’s Gorilla Class 4 protection.
Under the hood, the Priv uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and 3 GB of RAM. When it comes to memory configuration, it comes equipped with 32 GB of native storage capacity, in addition to a microSD card slot for expansion of up to a killer 2 TB.
Furthermore, the BlackBerry Priv sports a phenomenal 18-megapixel Schneider-Kreuznach primary camera unit with OIS support. A modest 2-megapixel secondary snapper sits at the front of the device for selfies and video chats. Lastly, this handset comes housed with a huge 3,410 mAh battery unit and the cell will reportedly be able to provide up to 22.5 hours of mixed usage.
