Carphone Warehouse offers a proper hands-on with the BlackBerry Priv

BlackBerry Priv

In the last few weeks, since the BlackBerry CEO confirmed and (awkwardly) showed off the new BlackBerry Priv, folks have been wondering what will be under the hood. Luckily, the folks over at Carphone Warehouse were able to get their hands on one, and have released a hands-on video of BlackBerry’s first Android device.

In addition to properly showing of the capabilities of the Priv, the folks at Carphone Warehouse have given everyone a full spec sheet.

  • 4-inch QHD (2560×1440) dual-curved AMOLED display, 540ppi
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal storage, microSD card support up to 2TB
  • 18-megapixel rear camera
  • 2-megapixel front camera
  • 3,410mAh battery
  • 147mm x 77.2mm x 9.4mm
  • Android 5.1.1 Lollipop

It’s up to you to decide whether this is a power-house device, or something that’s just another phone in the Android lineup. Now that you know the specs, you’ll probably want to see how the Priv performs, so here’s the awesome video from Carphone Warehouse that shows off the Priv.

In today’s day and age, finding a smartphone WITH a keyboard is a little far-fetched of an idea. However, BlackBerry users love their keyboards, and combined with their mobile Enterprise solutions, the Priv may be a slam dunk. While a few of us here at AndroidGuys are excited for the release, we’ll have to wait and see how the rest of the world feels about BlackBerry’s foray into the Android ecosystem.

Additionally, the Priv has been put up for pre-order by Carphone Warehouse before BlackBerry has even put the device up for pre-order. Currently, you can’t pre-order the Priv without a contract, but you can sign up for a contract through Vodaphone via the Carphone Warehouse pre-order page.
