Rogers starts accepting BlackBerry Priv pre-orders
The BlackBerry Priv will sport a 5.4-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a 544ppi pixel density. The Snapdragon 808 chipset is powering the handset, with a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. A 2TB capacity microSD slot is aboard for those requiring additional memory.
An 18MP Schneider-Kreuznach camera (with OIS) is on back, and there is a 2MP front-facing snapper ready to shoot selfies and handle video chats. Users should be able to squeeze plenty of battery life out of the 3410mAh juicer, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.
Yesterday, BlackBerry put up a blog post explaining how it is able to keep Android secure, a task that BlackBerry's CEO said was a must before he would sell a phone powered by Google's open source OS.
