BlackBerry might have leaked the Priv's specs and release date

BlackBerry’s been drip-feeding knowledge about its first Android telephone for the previous few weeks, nevertheless it seems as if somebody’s spilled the remainder of the beans a bit bit early. An eagle-eyed member of the Crackberry boards discovered a web page on the agency’s web site that shared the spec listing and worth for the US and Canadian model of the gadget. If correct, then we all know that the Priv is packing a good bit of energy beneath the hood, however has a listed worth of $749. There is no indication if that determine is for the US or Canada — however the web page does reference the (GSM) handset not engaged on American CDMA networks like Verizon and Dash. You will additionally spot that the gadget is marked for launch on November sixteenth, so we cannot have lengthy to seek out out if all of that is true or not.

Efficiency-sensible, the Priv is packing a 1.8Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 with 3GB RAM, 32GB storage and a microSD card slot that’ll take as much as 2TB. A lot was manufactured from the Priv’s curved display, and we all know that it is a 5.forty three-inch plastic AMOLED with a 2,560 x 1,440 decision (540 DPI) that may deal with styluses and gloves. The bodily keyboard measures 37mm excessive by seventy seven.2mm large, and there is a three,360mAh battery that is rated for 22.5 hours of use tucked inside.

We knew that the Priv would include an 18-megapixel digital camera, however now consider that it will include OIS,a six-aspect f/2.2 lens and can report 4K video at 30 frames per second. The selfie cam up entrance is 2-megapixel with a f/2.eight lens and 720p video recording, and also will take panoramas together with your mug in the midst of it. Loads of BlackBerry units include NFC, however its inclusion right here does increase the potential that the Priv might help Android Pay sooner or later.

All of this comes from a single supply on a fan discussion board, so we will not take it as gospel fact, however even with a tinfoil hat, all of it sounds believable. We hope that the pricing is for Canada fairly than the US, since that may make the fee right here round $570, placing it in the identical tough ballpark because the $599 charged for the Passport on launch.
