First BlackBerry Android phone – BlackBerry Priv price revealed in China

Besides being the very first BlackBerry smartphones running on Android Operating System, BlackBerry Priv is also known for its unique design. The phone has 2 curved bezels and a full QWERTY physical keyboard able to slide out when you need. Furthermore, the keyboard also doubles as a touchpad which was firstly introduced in BlackBerry Passport.


What we have received so far is the information about BlackBerry Priv price which was leaked in China not long ago. Accordingly, the Priv will cost 3,999 Yuan, equivalent to $630 or RM2,625 as the BlackBerry Priv Price in Malaysia. Obviously, this cannot be called an affordable device; it will mainly aim at those who want to purchase a high-end machine.

As we mentioned above, BB Priv looks really special when sporting the Android interface, but other BlackBerry Priv specs are also impressive. They include a Quad HD 5.4-inch screen, a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 1.8GHz chipset and 3GB RAM. As for the camera, there is a combo of a 5 megapixel front and an 18 megapixel rear snapper with Schneider-Kreuznach lens, autofocus function and ability to record 4K videos. In addition, the handset’s internal storage is capable of 32GB. For a fuller view of the BB Priv Specs, check out the table below:
