BlackBerry Priv render

Are you one of the many Android fans who values high end hardware? Are you interested in a physical keyboard? Well, the new BlackBerry Priv features both of those things and is now up for pre-registration on their website.

The Priv is supposed to be released some time this year, and now, BlackBerry is letting you in on some of the details. On their pre-registration page, you can sign up to be notified of all the details when they become available and be one of the first to know when the launch date is set. But let’s face it, due to the leak culture we live in, the exact release date will probably be leaked long before BlackBerry releases it.

Also on the page, we’re getting some confirmed specs. The BlackBerry Priv will have a 5.4″ dual curved screen, 3410mAh battery, on screen keyboard as well as a physical slider keyboard, Schneider-Kreuznach certified camera (Schneider-Kreuznach is a company is known partly for its many innovative lens designs) and premium audio quality, although no details were given on exactly what that means.

Also, according to BlackBerry, the Priv will have a DTEK security system to keep your phone safe. We’re going to assume that this is going to be much like Samsung’s Knox that allows personal and business content to exist securely on the same handset. BlackBerry has long been a corporate favorite due to their security features and physical keyboard, and they’re not leaving those folks in the past. Interestingly enough, there’s actually a tab to indicate whether you’re interested in buying 10 or more devices on the sign-up page.

While there will be a big push for business users, interest among Android enthusiasts remains high. For many, it will come down to price with some users even going as far as to say that they’ll be cancelling their Nexus 6P pre-orders to pick up a Priv, if the price is right.
