New BlackBerry Priv photos confirm 4K video recording and 64-bit processor
While BlackBerry already confirmed the existence of its Android-based Priv smartphone (even showing us a few official images of it), the company has yet to reveal all the details that we want to know about the device. Fortunately, thanks to new hands-on photos posted today by N4BB, we can now see that the smartphone is powered by a 64-bit processor - most probably, this is a six-core Snapdragon 808, though at the moment we can't be sure about this.

One of the photos posted by N4BB is also showing that the Priv can shoot 4K video (at 30fps) with its 18 MP rear camera. Other than that, the new BlackBerry handset sports a 5.5-inch dual-curve display - likely made by Samsung - and has a sliding, touch-sensitive QWERTY keyboard. BlackBerry suggests that the Priv will be one of the most secure smartphones out there.

The Priv should be released sometime before the end of the year, probably in the US and Canada first. Right now, there's no word on how much the smartphone is going to cost, but we'll let you know as soon as we find out.
