The BlackBerry Priv is now up for pre-orders in Canada through Rogers. The carrier is accepting the registration for a fee of $40, however the device’s price is not mentioned yet. If you are the one who is definitely purchasing the Android and BlackBerry’s combination, it might be good to register and secure a unit in advance. According to CrackBerry, you can reserve the smartphone through Rogers reservation system.
For the pricing, we have a little idea for UK, China, and India, but these are not official figures from the company. The UK retailer Carphone Warehouse accepting the pre-orders around $896 for SIM-free unit, while an import listing in India indicates the price tag around $780. Few days ago, Leaksfly (Chinese tipster) posted on his Weibo page that the Priv may carry RMB 3,999 (approx. $630) in China.
Specs-wise, the BlackBerry Priv comes with a 5.4-inch 2K display, a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, an Adreno 418 graphics processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB storage (expandable up to 2TB), and a 3,410mAh battery.
