After weeks of leaks and speculation, BlackBerry has finally revealed the first official photos of its first ever Android phone, called Priv.
During its second quarter financial results last week, BlackBerry confirmed the long-standing rumors that it planned to launch a flagship handheld device that will “run on the Android operating system.”
It pretty much confirms what previously leaked photos of the device suggested it would look like, and BlackBerry CEO John Chen did actually give a glimpse of the device in a video earlier this week, where he (in)famously fumbled around trying to operate the new device.
The name “Priv” is derived from BlackBerry’s reputation as a privacy-focused company, and Chen previously stated that this would be a core facet of the new device.
“Priv combines the best of BlackBerry security and productivity with the expansive mobile application ecosystem available on the Android platform,” he said.
