BlackBerry Priv is one unique handset that, unfortunately, will never get the popularity it deserves. Launched in November 2015 with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on board, this flagship is finally ready to receive its first Android Marshmallow update.

According to INSIDE BlackBerry, "Android 6.0 Marshmallow (M) is now available on ShopBlackBerry.com and is coming to all major carriers offering PRIV starting May 3." The list of changes delivered by this update includes the following:

  • S/MIME support in BlackBerry Hub
  • customized personal data permissions
  • improved notification settings
  • updated BlackBerry Keyboard with new keyboard gestures, enhanced word prediction, new and updated emojis
  • Doze mode
  • slow-motion video (120 fps capture)
  • media card encryption support
  • 24 fps video recording in 720p, 1080p, or 4k resolution

Next to the above, the update will come with the latest fixes, tweaks and security patches. Although the BlackBerry Priv usually retails for over $600 USD, an AT&T-compatible model can be grabbed from Daily Steals for just $449.99 USD. Unfortunately, this deal will expire in less than 10 hours.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
