Blackberry Priv Set To Launch On Jan 28

The BlackBerry Priv will soon make its debut in yet another major market – India.

 A new report says that press invites have been sent to attend the launch of the Android-based smartphone in India on January 28.


Other than the fact that the press launch will take place in New Delhi, no other details were revealed about the India launch for the Priv. That includes carrier information and launch prices for the device.

The Priv has been expanding its reach in recent weeks to include France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands. After going up for pre-orders in October, the smartphone finally went on sale in the US and Canada in November last year.

The BlackBerry Priv was priced at $699 in the US, which today translates to roughly Rs. 47,300. We can expect BlackBerry to bring the smartphone to the country with a small premium over the converted dollar price.

The smartphone bears an accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, time of flight (ToF) sensor, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, altimeter, and activity monitor. A massive 3410mAh battery backs the device, rated to deliver up to 22.5 hours of ‘mixed usage’



Being BlackBerry this device is going to be priced in the upper range, it will be interesting to see if people still buy the BlackBerry Priv.
