It appears that BlackBerry accidentally let its official Priv listing go live. Various sources are reporting that they spotted the page on BlackBerry’s website moments before it was taken down. Fortunately for those who are excited about the phone, we now have all the specs.
BlackBerry had already given us some official tidbits in the Priv’s pre-registration page. There, it outted the 5.4″ dual-curved screen, 3,410 mAh battery, and Schneider-Kreuznach camera.
Now we know that the Snapdragon 808 chipset will power the Priv, with 3GB of RAM. That screen is 5.43″, to be exact, with a QHD resolution. The display uses a Plastic AMOLED panel (protected by Gorilla Glass 4) and has a High Brightness Mode for outdoor usage.
The Schneider-Kreuznach label on the camera won’t mean much to most people, but we know now that the main shooter will be an 18MP module, with OIS and Phase-Detection Autofocus (PDAF). It has a “6-element” f/2.2 aperture. The front camera is only 2MP (f/2.8), but has a large 1.75um pixel size to help with low-light shots.
Word is going around that the Priv will run a whopping $750 unlocked. That is a pretty steep asking price for a struggling company. The network specs only show support for AT&T and T-Mobile (GSM frequencies), but I wouldn’t freak out just yet if you’re on Verizon or Sprint. Wait until we hear the entire deal.
It is said that the Priv will begin shipping in the US on November 16th. Pre-orders are expected, which should be happening soon. What do you think, is this your next phone?
