By October 22nd, 2015 AT 3:40 PM

BlackBerry Priv, the company’s first Android smartphone, was officially unveiled a few weeks ago. However, the company didn’t reveal its specifications back then, and we had to resort to some leaked specifications while reporting the smartphone’s announcement. Now, the BlackBerry Priv is up for pre-order in the US, and will start shipping very soon (October 16) in the country. The BlackBerry Priv has been priced at $749 (~ Rs. 48,756) exclusive of taxes, but its price will increase by the time BlackBerry launches it in India, thanks to additional import duties and taxes.
