BlackBerry Priv has gone through a slew of price cuts in the past. At one point, this device was available for $400 and then for $380. However, now, this handset can be purchased at a dirt cheap price for a limited period of time.

EBay has listed the 32GB variant of the BlackBerry Priv for just $299.99. BlackBerry’s official store, on the other hand, is offering the same handset for $549. Therefore, buyers can save a cool $249.01 with this promotional offer.

This GSM unlocked variant, tied to the model number “STV100-1,” works under AT&T network. Only the black variant is available on discount and it supports 4G LTE, apart from other standard connectivity options.

As always, after placing the order, buyers can avail free shipping service from eBay within the U.S. As of today, 1,943 units of this discounted BlackBerry Priv have been sold. The prominent seller Quality Cellz has about 99.1 percent positive rating on eBay.

Speaking of key specifications, the BlackBerry Priv carries a 5.4-inch display, complemented by 1,440 x 2,560 pixels resolution and Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The Canadian tech giant has housed dual-curved-edge display on the Priv, along with a sliding physical QWERTY keyboard.

Under the hood, the handset comes powered by a hexa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 808) processor and backed by 3GB of RAM. In addition to the 32GB built-in storage, the Priv also supports microSD card to facilitate expansion.

Camera-wise, there is a cool 18-megapixel rear-facing sensor and a modest 2-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies. While Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS runs the device out of the box, it is upgradable to the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The BlackBerry Priv comes with a Li-Ion 3,410-mAh non-removable battery cell to help keep the lights on. The battery unit onboard will be able to provide up to 24 hours of talk time and roughly 420 hours of stand-by time.
