Description

BlackBerry Priv is the first Android-based smartphone of the company, and is presented as a secure handset. It comes with a new BlackBerry app called DTEK, which reportedly "lets you know when your privacy could be at risk so you can take action to improve it," while at the same time offering access to the Android ecosystem. The Priv has a sliding QWERTY keyboard (a rarity these days), in addition to a 5.4-inch dual-curve Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixel) display. Other features include LTE connectivity, a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3410 mAh battery. An 18 MP rear camera (with OIS and 4K video recording) and a 2 MP front-facing camera complete the specs list.
