What we know about the upcoming Blackberry Priv

Blackberry is really trying hard to get it right and for their sake, I hope it will give them some leverage.

The Priv features a 5.4″ Quad HD display with curved glass and runs on the Snapdragon 808 chip with dual-core 1.8GHz Cortex-A57 and quad-core 1.44GHz Cortex-A53 CPU plus Adreno 418 GPU.

The main camera of the BlackBerry Priv is an 18MP Sony MX230-S with 4K video recording and a dual-LED flash.

The BlackBerry’s setup also features Schneider-Kreuznach optics.

The Priv will be running on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with some BlackBerry exclusive apps and services. There will be an app to help you transfer content from various devices, including old BlackBerries.

 

From an accessibility point of view, and probably for the physical qwerty keyboard fans, this is going to be an interesting option as the selection on Android phones with physical qwerty keyboards are really small and I don’t think that there are any devices in South Africa at present.  The old and outdated ones doesn’t count.

 

Below is the video, introducing the Priv.

 

I will update this post the moment I learn anything else.
