The BlackBerry Priv’s design has many an Android fan going nuts, but so far its construction has been a mystery. Build quality is still questionable, but the company managed to accomplish a sleek design despite building in a plethora of extra hardware keys (something they are very good at). But how exactly is the Priv built?
BlackBerry has released a video to show us just how they put together their Priv handsets. Let’s take a look at it.
Sales of the new handset haven’t been as expected, with numbers well below the estimated quantities, but CEO John Chen stays optimistic about the company’s future. There’s even a possibility that they will release other mid-tier Android handsets at more affordable prices.

We still have plenty of time to decide whether the BlackBerry Priv is a success or not, though. Verizon still needs to release the BlackBerry Priv. The launch on the USA’s largest carrier is expected to be a big push for BlackBerry. And if they continue to offer good deals, things should definitely slide into the good side in 2016.
Until then, all we can do is wait and see how much BlackBerry can grow. Their Android handset is great, but it didn’t come without its faults. What we are hoping is that the Priv gives BlackBerry enough traction to keep pushing for more Android handsets. With time, they will get even better at making Google-powered smartphones.
