The “Blackberry Priv” is finally here, putting all the rumors to rest. The company had put the phone for pre-order last week but pulled it down. It is possible that the page had gone live accidentally.


But now, the Blackberry Priv is available for pre-order on the company’s website and will cost you $699. As the phone is officially out, let us have a look at the confirmed list of specifications:

– 5.4” dual-curved screen
– 3410 mAh battery
– Touch keyboard
– Physical keyboard
– Schneider-Kreuznach® certified camera
– Android 5.1.1 Lollipop

This Android device is powered by Snapdragon 808 processor and comes with 3GB RAM, an 18-megapixel rear camera and 32GB onboard storage with microSD card support. There is good news for keyboard fans here. Blackberry Priv will sport a regular touch keyboard as well as QWERTY keyboard which even doubles as a trackpad. As Blackberry listed the phone on its website, it emphasizes on a privacy feature Priv offers you. The company wrote, “PRIV also introduces the exclusive DTEK™ by BlackBerry warning system app to provide you with the power of privacy.”

As you visit Blackberry’s website to check out the phone, the company will give you valid reasons to buy Priv directly from them and not from any other retailer. Here’s what Blackberry has to say,

“We offer 1 year of complimentary support from BlackBerry experts, and a 30-day money back guarantee. You’ll also get freedom and flexibility when purchasing an unlocked smartphone from Upgrade to a new smartphone whenever you want, choose from less expensive carrier plans and local roaming packages, and get a higher resale value.”
