UPDATE - The pricing reflected here has changed now that pre-orders have gone live. Priv pricing is now set at $699 in the US and $899 in Canada and available in the UK for £559
If the ads pointing to a Friday pre-order date for the Priv didn't have you salivating already, things are starting to heat up. BlackBerry is now listing the Priv on ShopBlackBerry, and although you can't pre-order just yet, we now have a good look at pricing. For those of us in the U.S., it looks like the BlackBerry Priv is running a cool $750 unlocked. In Canada, on the other hand, it'll set you back $949 — definitely a pricey little beast. In addition, we're looking at a ship date of November 16 after pre-orders begin.
And while we already knew a few specs that would be packed into the smartphone, the listings give us a more complete picture. Aside from the 5.4-inch display, 3410mAh battery, 18MP rear and 2MP front-facing cameras, 3GB of RAM, and Snapdragon 808 processor, there's a bit more to check out. It looks like the screen will pack a resolution of 2560 x 1440 at 540 DPI, and the camera will be capable of 4k video at 30 fps, along with OIS and Phase Detect Auto Focus. BlackBerry adds that the large battery will also enable 22.5 hours of use.
To check out the listings, along with every little detail of what the Priv is packing, be sure to hit up the links below. Just keep in mind, you can't actually place an order as of yet. Those are expected to go live on October 23.
UPDATE - And now the pages have gone missing. Guess we'll have to wait until BlackBerry decides to put them back up.
