Adding to their already existing Red Dot awards for the BlackBerry Passport, BlackBerry Q10, BlackBerry Z10 and Porsche Design P'9981, the BlackBerry Priv has now won the Red Dot Award for Product Design 2016 as announced by BlackBerry.

"Our BlackBerry Design Team is extremely excited to be recognized by the prestigious Red Dot, given the time and energy spent on developing this next level design for BlackBerry," said Scott Wenger, Global Head of BlackBerry Devices Design. "Priv is an innovative device encompassing a re-imagined form factor while also offering security standards on an Android device that many in the industry never thought would be possible. These design features and security enhancements set Priv apart from the pack."

Red Dot awarded Priv the Product Design award for high design quality and was selected from a record number of 5,214 products from 57 nations, where 41 jury members designated the awards.
