BlackBerry Hub

All your messages in one place

View, prioritise, and respond to all your messages in one location. BlackBerry® Hub lets you see your email, SMS, calendar, phone calls and social media3 at a glance.

BlackBerry Calendar

Intelligent calendar

PRIV comes with the best out-of-box calendar experience on Android. When it’s time to join a call, simply press the Join Now button to dial in.

Google Play

World-class apps

Get full access to over one million applications. Whether it’s Uber, Spotify®, Instagram or BBM®, you’ll find it in the Google Play™ store.

Device Search

A swipe away from the information you need

Swiping up from the bottom edge of the PRIV screen will allow you to quickly open BlackBerry Hub, Device Search, or Google Now™.

BlackBerry Pop-up Widgets

Easy access to app content

Widgets on Android devices display information from an app directly on your home screen. BlackBerry Pop-up Widgets let you see that information, but without permanently taking up home screen space or displaying content you may not want all to see. Simply swipe up or down across an icon to view the widget.

Privacy Matters. Live Secure.

Whether it’s your financial reports or your selfies, your data is encrypted on the PRIV. BlackBerry lives and breathes security and has taken extra steps to help protect you from malware, data breaches and any attempts to hack and tamper with your OS.

Security can seem complicated, but we want to make it simple for you. DTEK™ by BlackBerry® for Android™ will automatically monitor your OS and apps and let you know when your privacy could be at risk and how you can take action to improve it. With just a quick glimpse you can see the overall security rating for your device – excellent, fair or poor – and what you can do to improve it. DTEK also tracks your applications and notifies you when someone is:

  • Taking pictures or videos without your knowledge
  • Turning your microphone on
  • Sending a text message
  • Accessing your contacts, location or financial information

PRIV is packed with lots of other security features like Password Keeper to store secret passwords and notes, Picture Password to make it virtually impossible for someone to break into your phone and encrypted messaging with BBM. Take control and be confident knowing your personal data is being kept private.

Slide-out keyboard

Best of both keyboards

The PRIV by BlackBerry gives you the freedom to choose between a virtual keyboard or a physical keyboard for speed and accuracy. Snap the slider open to gain back screen space and reveal a full physical keyboard. Move your thumb across the touch sensitive keys for scrolling, flicking predictive text onto the screen, and fine cursor control as if it were a track pad. And, easily program the buttons to launch customisable shortcuts.

Tough and beautiful screen

The PRIV by BlackBerry has a stunning 5.4” immersive dual-curve display, protected by the rigorously drop tested Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4. It sports an incredible pixel density that’s 4x the amount of pixels of a standard HDTV. And because the display is OLED, it delivers richer colours and deeper black levels with less power consumption, so you can revel in its beauty for even longer.

Using the screen’s elegant curved edge, you can see battery charge status when your device is sleeping, for convenient access without having to wake your display.

Dazzling photo quality

The PRIV by BlackBerry camera is engineered to deliver professional looking photos with minimal effort. With an 18 MP dual-flash camera, certified by Schneider-Kreuznach, it integrates technologies commonly found in professional DSLR cameras.

The camera is also equipped with a range of professional settings you can apply as you frame the scene, including live colour filters and exposure control. Plus, features like Phase Detection Auto Focus, OIS, and a dual-color flash are designed to help the camera focus instantly and accurately, deliver feedback quickly, and capture blur-free, realistic looking photos, even in low light.
