When a flagship smartphone is out of your budget, the smart thing to do is to wait a while when it becomes easily one of the most affordable devices ever. That is what the price tag of BlackBerry Priv has been reduced to, and if you want a handset that is beefed up on both security and hardware without spending too much, then this deal will definitely suit your wallet.

BlackBerry Priv Features A Storage Of 32GB And Carries A Price Tag Of Just $399

On eBay, one seller is giving away a BlackBerry Priv with the following description provided:

“New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is applicable). Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag.”

Coming to the hardware specifications of BlackBerry Priv, the secure smartphone features a Snapdragon 808, along with 3GB of RAM. The screen itself is going to be a 5.4 inch one and will radiate a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels. The hexa-core processor present in the smartphone will not be downclocked so you will not have to worry about performance issues. In addition to a touch-keyboard, there is also a physical keyboard that comes out courtesy of a sliding mechanism and is present for all those who want to experience a more tactile feeling from their mobile’s keyboard.

There is also an 18MP Sony IMX230 camera sensor present on the rear side of BlackBerry PRIV and it is the same sensor that is present on devices like Meizu MX5 and Sony Xperia M5, meaning that it will effortlessly be able to record 4K videos in addition to snapping high-resolution images.

Do you think that 32GB of on-board storage present in BlackBerry PRIV is far too less to be present in a $400 smartphone? Guess what, you will be able to expand that storage up to 2TB. The device itself is not bad at all, but we feel that BlackBerry should have released it at a much smaller price and it should have been introduced earlier in 2015. Nevertheless, it is still a commendable effort from the company and we hope that its successor is better in every way possible.
