PRIV™ combines everything you’ve come to expect from BlackBerry with the full ecosystem of Android™ and its apps. It features a slide-out keyboard, Schneider-Kreuznach® certified camera and the best integrated messaging experience on Android. Added security lets you know when you could be at risk, so you can easily take action to improve your privacy.
PRIV brings incredible new features to the Android platform that make sharing ideas and connecting with people faster and easier. Combined with the world’s most popular mobile OS, it’s the best of both worlds.
All your messages in one place
View, prioritize, and respond to all your messages in one location. BlackBerry® Hub lets you see your email, SMS, calendar, phone calls and social media2 at a glance.
PRIV comes with the best out-of-box calendar experience on Android. When it’s time to join a call, simply press the Join Now button to dial in.
Get full access to over one million applications. Whether it’s Uber, Spotify®, Instagram or BBM®, you’ll find it in the Google Play™ store.
A swipe away from the information you need
Swiping up from the bottom edge of the PRIV screen will allow you to quickly open BlackBerry Hub, Device Search, or Google Now™.
Easy access to app content
Widgets on Android devices display information from an app directly on your home screen. BlackBerry Pop-up Widgets let you see that information, but without cluttering your home screen with content and messages you may not want others to see. Simply swipe up or down across an icon to view the widget.
Best of both keyboards
PRIV gives you the freedom to choose between a virtual keyboard or a physical keyboard for speed and accuracy. Snap the slider open to gain back screen space and reveal a full physical keyboard. Move your thumb across the touch sensitive keys for scrolling, flicking predictive text onto the screen, and fine cursor control as if it were a track pad. And, easily program the buttons to launch customizable shortcuts.
Tough and beautiful screen
PRIV has a stunning 5.4” immersive dual-curve display, protected by the rigorously drop tested Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4. It sports an incredible pixel density that’s 4x the amount of pixels of a standard HDTV. And because the display is OLED, it delivers richer colors and deeper black levels with less power consumption, so you can revel in its beauty for even longer.
Colossal battery life
Don’t be deceived by the sleek design of PRIV. It still packs a 3410 mAh battery with enough power to withstand up to 22.5 hours of mixed use1. Discover the confidence that comes with proven battery life and the freedom of being unplugged all day long.
Using the screen’s elegant curved edge, you can see battery charge status when your device is sleeping, for convenient access without having to wake your display.
Dazzling photo quality
The PRIV camera is engineered to deliver professional looking photos with minimal effort. With an 18 MP dual-flash camera, certified by Schneider-Kreuznach, it integrates technologies commonly found in professional DSLR cameras.
The camera is also equipped with a range of professional settings you can apply as you frame the scene, including live color filters and exposure control. Plus, features like Phase Detection Auto Focus, OIS, and a dual-colour flash are designed to help the camera focus instantly and accurately, deliver feedback quickly, and capture blur-free, realistic looking photos, even in low light.
Take control of your privacy
Whether it's your financial reports or your selfies, your data is encrypted by default on PRIV. Extra steps are taken at both hardware and software levels to help protect you from malware and any attempts to tamper with your OS.
You can be confident your personal data is being kept private with DTEK™ by BlackBerry® for Android™, a single dashboard to monitor and control application access to your microphone, camera, location and personal information. Know at a glance the overall security rating for your device, as well as for specific security features.
BlackBerry means serious business
PRIV comes ready to work. Android™ for Work support allows for fast, simple and secure integration with your enterprise environment. BlackBerry is the best professional tool for those who strive for success every day, providing superior productivity, ultimate privacy and effective communications and collaboration.
Seamless integration with Google Play for Work also allows for easy access to IT managed apps. Combined with BlackBerry Hub, Calendar and DTEK by BlackBerry for Android, you’ll have access to all the apps you could ever need.
