The world’s first BlackBerry Secure Smartphone Powered by Android.
As of rumours doing rounds the Android-powered BlackBerry Priv may pack a 21MP primary camera instead of an 18MP camera. The probability of a Sony IMX 230 sensor being equipped in the upcoming mobile phone. The Motorola Moto X Style is equipped with the same Sony IMX230 sensor and has a 21MP rear-facing camera. A hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor is estimated to power the device. The same Snapdragon chip also powers the LG G4. The Priv may also get 3GB of RAM. The camera of the BlackBerry Priv will also get optical image stabilization, dual LED flash and fast focus to enhance picture quality. The handset is also expected to have a 5MP front-facing camera. The BlackBerry smartphone may get 32GB of internal storage with the option to expand the memory with a microSD card. Although the BlackBerry Priv will be a slider phone it is expected to be relatively thin, at least thinner than the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
The BlackBerry Priv team believes that the new flagship will be warmly accepted by a large market of Android consumers who want better security features on their phones. If their product succeeds, the Priv could restore BlackBerry as a leading premium mobile phone manufacturer in the industry. However, the phone should be launched by the end of 2015. If and when available in the Indian market, the phone should cost around 40k. BlackBerry the brand itself has been long forgotten and with the launch of this new model the company should be hoping to gain their reputation back and get their space back in the Gadget world.
