Demand heavy for unlocked BlackBerry Priv; new orders ship the week of November 23rd
The Priv is BlackBerry's first Android phone, which alone would be enough to generate demand. Throw in a rarely seen slider form factor with a physical QWERTY keyboard, and BlackBerry's famous security, and you have a device that has plenty of interest behind it. The BlackBerry Priv is priced at $699.
The BlackBerry Priv features a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.4-inch AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a 541ppi pixel density, the highest ever for a 'Berry. The Snapdragon 808 SoC is under the hood, carrying a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. A 2TB capacity microSD slot is available to those seeking additional memory. An 18MP Schneider Kreuznach camera is located on the back, while a 2MP front-facing camera snaps selfies and handles video chats. A 3410mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed. The Priv will be updated to Android 6.0 next year.
