The unlocked BlackBerry Priv gets a permanent price cut
Obviously, this is the recommended price for the unlocked version of the Priv, which was previously sold at $699. We do have to point out, however, that some retailers had already lowered the price of the Priv for a few good months now.
A $50 price cut for the BlackBerry Priv is not likely to convert the BlackBerry Priv into a hit. In fact, this is only a moderate price cut for a smartphone that BlackBerry launched back in November 2015.
Most smartphone enthusiasts are already well familiarized with what the BlackBerry Priv has to offer. Just in case you need a refresher, though, the Priv is BlackBerry's first Android-powered smartphone. On the hardware side, the handset is equipped with a 5.4-inch display of the AMOLED kind running at a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels, a slide-out hardware keyboard, a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable internal storage.
What do you guys think of this recent BlackBerry Priv price cut? Is $650 a good price for the handset now that newer handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the LG G5 have landed?
