We’ve been making a bit of noise about the BlackBerry Priv, an incredible Android powered BlackBerry with sliding keyboard. As you can see above, it looks kind of amazing, and though we’ve had a few rumours previously, including pre-sales opening this Friday in the US, it seems we now know exactly what’s going on.
BlackBerry has the Priv listed on ShopBlackberry, and while we can’t pre-order it just yet, we have the pricing information — in the US, the unlocked handset will sell for $US750, and the Canadians will have access too, albeit for $949, quite a bit more expensive.
At the time of writing, the listings have been removed, but not before others picked up the details and shared them for the world to see.
Inside, the Priv is sounding rather appealing; it features a 5.4″ display, Snapdragon 808 chipset with 3,410mAh battery. Camera-wise, the Priv features an 18MP rear camera, and 2MP front camera, 3GB of RAM, and an incredible display capable of 2560×1440 resolution at 540 DPI.
Whatever the Priv is, we can’t wait to see it. BlackBerry was always known for its strong design smarts, and while its software might not have been to everyone’s tastes, their hardware was mostly pretty cool.
