Well BlackBerry is making its Android debut if you haven’t heard it yet. Its first ever device to run Google’s OS is called Priv, and those interested in purchasing it can pre-register themselves now to be notified about its arrival whenever the company is ready with its supplies.
The page where you can do that has officially talked about some important details about this phone, but we already know this information thanks to the tons of leaks that have plagued the BlackBerry Priv – previously called Venice. This phone is to sport a 5.4-inch dual-curved display which is most likely to offer Quad HD visuals.
A physical BlackBerry keyboard exists on this Android smartphone, but is hidden by a slider mechanism. The page tells us that a 3410mAh battery will be seen powering the handset from within, while there will even be a Schneider-Kreuznach certified camera onboard. The resolution of this snapper has previously been revealed to be 18MP.
The Priv will come pre-loaded with a new DTEK app which is some sort of a privacy focused utility that’s still to be detailed. We’ve been told before, that this phone will be powered by the hexa core Snapdragon 808 chipset which will combine its strength with 3GB worth of RAM.
