Canadian tech giant BlackBerry inadvertently published a slew of configuration, price and release details for its Priv smartphone. The company quickly took the preorder page down.
The BlackBerry Priv runs on Android OS and it comes with a physical QWERTY keyboard that slides out.
CrackBerry reported the BlackBerry Priv will cost $750 in the U.S. and $949 in Canada. The handset will start shipping Nov. 16. As reported earlier, the Priv can be ordered starting this Friday.
The BlackBerry Priv reportedly will come with a 5.4-inch display, dual-edge curved screen, Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 protection and 2,560-x-1,440-pixel screen resolution. This display combination translates to a pixel density of 540 dots per inch. The handset will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chip, working in tandem with a hexa-core processor and backed by 3 GB of RAM.
There is an 18 MP Schneider-Kreuznach rear-facing camera unit that is capable of 4K video capture, Optical Image Stabilization and Phase Detect Autofocus support. A 2 MP front-facing camera helps with selfies and video chats.
The 3,410 mAh battery unit reportedly provides 22.5 hours of charge. The device will come equipped with 32 GB of native storage space and microSD card slot for expansion of up to 2 TB.
Although, BlackBerry took down the preorder page, interested buyers should keep a tab on these links: ShopBlackBerry US and ShopBlackBerry Canada. The Priv works under the following FD-LTE bands: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 17, 20, 29 and 30. Therefore, it will not be compatible with Verizon, Sprint or U.S. Cellular, Phone Arena noted.
