There’s now a video of a BlackBerry Priv running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to add to the number of images we’ve already seen. A video review of the Priv appeared on YouTube and clearly shows Android 6.0.1 running on it. There’s not a huge amount to go on in the video, as it has a nice musical soundtrack rather than actual talking, but visually it looks much the same as the Priv on Lollipop.
As you may recall, BlackBerry promised Marshmallow for the Priv in Q1, 2016. That means we’re now at the eleventh hour if the company plans to make good on that promise, but at least some Priv users are enjoying Marshmallow, if not exactly everyone. If you want to know what to expect from Android Marshmallow when it does arrive, be sure to check out our Android Marshmallow review.
The Priv was unleashed on the Android world back in November 2015 and enjoyed a surprisingly warm welcome. BlackBerry did a wonderful job on its first Android phone and quickly promised a follow up codenamed Vienna, to appeal to the mid-range market. While the Vienna has not yet surfaced, BlackBerry CEO John Chen has confirmed the company will release at least one more Android phone in 2016.
