Official BlackBerry Priv video released
Earlier today, we told you that Carphone Warehouse has started taking pre-orders for the BlackBerry Priv. While the Android-powered slider still needs to be officially introduced by BlackBerry, such a move appears imminent. The company has posted a video showing off the first BlackBerry device driven by the open source Android OS.

Based on the Carphone Warehouse pre-order page, the Priv features a 5.4-inch 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution screen. The Snapdragon 808 chipset is under the hood, carrying a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32 GB of internal storage. Those who need additional storage can access the 2TB microSD slot.

The rear-facing 18MP camera offers OIS to keep images from turning out shaky, and the front-facing 2MP snapper will shoot selfies and handle video chat. BlackBerry handsets are known for having good battery life, and the 3410mAh juicer will keep the lights on for a long time. And yes, as odd as it feels to type it, Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.

Check out the first official video for the BlackBerry Priv merely by clicking on the video below.
