Check out the latest BlackBerry Priv photos, hot off the press!
There is no denying the fact that the BlackBerry Priv is one of the most eagerly anticipated smartphones that has leaked during the current quarter. And while more pictures of the device just showed up the other day, another good look at a pre-production model has surfaced today. At the same time, the latest specs are listed, although they aren't anything different than what we have heard over the last month or so.

That means that the Priv will feature a 5.4-inch screen, with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. The 544ppi pixel density tells us to expect images on the screen to be sharp and clear. The Snapdragon 808 SoC is under the hood, featuring a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, with 32GB of internal memory. 22GB is available for users, and there is a microSD slot for those needing more storage.

The 18MP Schneider-Kreuznach rear camera features OIS and dual-tone LED flash. We would be surprised if BlackBerry didn't make sure that this camera provides users with the very best photographic experience ever had on a BlackBerry. The front-facing 5MP shooter snaps selfies, and handles video chats.

The Priv scored 46,000 on AnTuTu which is below the elite level. But keep in mind that as noted earlier, this is still a pre-production model. As for those new pictures we promised you, merely click on the slideshow to check them out.

Thanks for the tip!

It looks very plastic, which is a real shame. The front speaker portion at the bottom is a huge piece of cheap plastic. Very surprised at this design (especially after the latest BB Passport Silver). WTF...

This isn't necessarily a bad thing. Recent Lumia 950s are plastic but they're durable as hell. If it has the same quality and durabiliity it'll be fine.

Definitely looking like a better buy by the second, at least it'll be easier to get it in all major carriers.

Really hope they made a red version like seen in renders. Plastic or not.

So what if it's "only" 46,000 on AnTuTu? BlackBerry is making Android secure! Just like any AVP slows down your desktop, there has to be a performance dip to get the desired results. I think 46k is excellent for what you're getting considering what flagships were scoring a year or two ago with zero security and heaps of lag.

Eagerly awaiting for the finished/final product to be released and reviewed. Pre-production models don't count. The Priv is looking better and better. Hope BlackBerry knocks it out the ballpark with performance, and PLEASE get some marketing going on the device, asap!

After reading an early hands on review seems like build quality is cheap but solid and camera is mediocre at best. Lots of lag which hopefully will go away with official release.http:// Priv-Hands-on-with-Blackberrys-first-Android-phone

That's from a pre-production model, so both the software and probably the hardware are unfinished. I'd wait for the official release of the final production unit before passing judgment. Also, your link is the same one PA used. They make mention that it being an unfinished product as well.

Was there a keynote presentation? I got carried away by Microsoft's amazing announcements all this while and almost forgot about BB...would really like to see what it has to offer.

But maybe it will cost higher than apples, so it just die, die when it launch

I just want to know if the only option is to use the keyboard or will it be like 9800 where it was a on screen keyboard as well.

I will most like buy this or Sony Z5 Premium. The Sony will probably cost $200 more. But I need to try the Priv first to know if I like it.

It's gonna make money for blackberry with android. We could all chip in and get one to shove it up bobbybuster's @rse and set it to vibrate maybe then he won't be frustrated and leave trashing android once and for all!!!!!!
