If you haven’t had your fill of BlackBerry Priv hands-on time yet, UK high-street retailer Carphone Warehouse has just uploaded its own quick video, offering a look at some of the handset’s features.

The video gives us a nice view at the QHD curved display, physical QWERTY keyboard and a very brief look at some camera samples too. BlackBerry also seems to have made a few tweaks to the Android OS, including a tile based app history menu. BlackBerry’s DTEK security app also comes pre-installed on the smartphone. Check it out below.

The Carphone Warehouse also has a product web page up for the smartphone, which gives us a quick run down of the hardware specifications. Here’s the list:

  • 4-inch QHD (2560×1440) dual-curved AMOLED display, 540ppi
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal memory, with microSD card slot for up to 2TB
  • 18 megapixel rear camera
  • 2 megapixel front camera
  • 3,410 mAh battery
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • 147 (184 opened) x 77.2 x 9.4 mm, 192g
  • Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system

The BlackBerry Priv is clearly a high-end flagship smartphone, although the single limited internal memory option and poor front facing camera resolution might be a let-down to some.

If you like what you see, pre-registration for the BlackBerry Priv is already live on the company’s official website. UK customers can also now pre-order the phone from Carphone Warehouse, with contract offers available from EE, O2 and Vodaphone in the region of £50 to £70 per month, putting the handset a little on the expensive side.
