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.

In terms of imaging, the BlackBerry Priv has an 18-megapixel primary camera with a BSI2 stacked sensor, phase-deteciton autofocus, dual-tone dual-LED flash, OIS, and 4K video recording. There’s a 2-megapixel secondary camera with fixed-focus lens and 720p video recording. The camera has almost all the features that are present in the latest flagship smartphones from other competing brands.

The device has a single-SIM card slot, and is laden with connectivity features such as 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, dual-band Wi-Fi ac/a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, NFC, GPS, and microUSB v2.0 port.
