Specifications wise, the new BlackBerry Priv will most likely have a 5.4” quad HD resolution, a hexa-core 1.8 GHz Snapdragon 808 chip, an 18 MP camera, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory storage. For users who want extended storage for their large files, they do not have to worry, since the product comes prepared with an extra microSD port. The front-facing selfie camera, meanwhile, sports a 5 MP sensor.
There was not much said about the screen, but the few details seem fairly appealing for most users. The sources compare Priv’s display to that of LG G4‘s, which is one of the best in the mobile world, with bright colors and excellent contrast. They also discuss of a function that shows the phone’s current battery power on the rounded part of its screen, but it seems that this capability has not been used yet. It is probably an option that may be offered with the customer model.
According to experts, the device does not actually provide a top premium experience all around, but the phone balances out this slight disadvantage with convenience and performance. The rear part is made of plastic materials that offer a better grip while using it and it is something that will make you forget about the inexpensive feeling in your hands. However, even much pricier smart phones use plastic for some of their elements to provide an extra benefit in ergonomics.
The famous BlackBerry keyboard it is what made many users to wish for new BlackBerry Android phones. Since it will be arriving soon in stores, they now have high expectations for this device. The pre-reviews say that the keyboard is quite hefty and its sliding parts seem to work efficiently. They have one complaint though: even if it is very simple to identify all keys by touching them, random clicks are frequent due to their increased sensitivity.
Sources in tech media say that the smart phone will operate on Android OS 5.1 and has amazing clarity in bright light. On the less glorious part of specs, the experts suggest that the case on the rear feels like rubber and is rather far from top quality smart phones. Make sure to look for online resources for additional first-hand opinions on the Priv, such as exemplification images taken with its cameras.
Now, here are some price details to disclose. Over the end of last month, confidential sources released a review showing that BlackBerry’s future Android-based phone will be offered via Chinese suppliers for around $625. While it is not very clear how the item will be sold in the United States, notice that a medium price level on all recent BlackBerries has been of approximately $250. It is almost sure that the company is not only placing its Priv as a top smart phone, but its price will be set accordingly.
There are no clear details regarding Priv’s release in stores and all we have until now are just rumors. The newest rumbling from the gossip mill is saying that a complete item presentation is scheduled for Nov, before an expected selling interval during the spring of 2016.
