After a long gap, BlackBerry is garnering the much-required attention from the tech crowd across the globe. The upcoming BlackBerry Priv is perpetually making news with umpteen leaks and rumors, especially in the past couple of weeks. Now, a new leak says, the upcoming Priv by BlackBerry will feature a killer camera sensor like Sony Xperia Z series of handsets.

With retro-styled keyboard slider and Android OS on board, the BlackBerry Priv was rumored to sport a Schneider-Kreuznach branded camera ring, complete with 18-megapixel rear-facing sensor. However, now, a new tweet from the credible tipster and journalist @Ricciolo1 said that the rear camera will be a Sony IMX230 sensor. It is worth noting that the same senor has been featured in the recently released Motorola Moto X Style. This means, there will be a 21-megapixel camera instead of the 18-megapixel unit as rumored earlier.

The BlackBerry Priv will reportedly feature a 5.4-inch display, packed with 1,440 x 2,560 pixels screen resolution. This display combination translates to a solid pixel density of 544 ppi.

Under the hood, the BlackBerry Priv will apparently be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC, working in tandem with a hexa-core CPU and Adreno 418 GPU for graphics. The device is believed to be backed by a good 3 GB of RAM.

When it comes to memory specification, the Priv will come equipped with 32 GB of built-in storage space and microSD card slot for further expansion. Out of the 32 GB of native space, 22 GB will be available for device users, Phone Arena reported.

Here is the tweet from @Ricciolo1 pointing to the new Sony sensor for the Priv by BlackBerry:
