BlackBerry says Priv will not get Android Nougat

BlackBerry says Priv will not get Android Nougat

It launched with Android Lollipop and received an update to Marshmallow in 2016.

This is the type of bad news we're seeing with the BlackBerry Priv now as well.

Blackberry's last in-house built handset the Blackberry Priv was kept up to date with security fixes every month since release, but it appears feature updates won't be coming with a Blackberry General Manager confirming the handset will remain on Marshmallow. However, he noted that was a massive undertaking which required getting the device partners on board and that it will be next to impossible to repeat for updates to Android 7.0 Nougat and beyond. Unfortunately for BlackBerry users will be facing these limitations.

Other notable mentions are Gigabit LTE ( Samsung Galaxy S8 ) and Bluetooth v5.0 (everything running the Snapdragon 835 SoC). As for augmented reality, Qualcomm points to Lenovo's Phab Pro 2, which supported Google's Tango platform, as a first.


It would seem that the time to transfer BlackBerry Priv, taking into account the originality of its design and great stylish design to a more modern firmware, at least on Android 7 Nougat, not to mention Android 8 Oreo, but, alas, this will not happen - Android will be the sixth for this device.

This is why Thurber also confirmed that the KEYone would be receiving the Android Oreo update soon. The company has confirmed that it won't be releasing any Android Nougat or Oreo update for its Priv smartphone. It comes with a slide-out physical keyboard with smart touch capabilities. He termed it unlikely, however, he says that the smartphones will receive security updates.

The handset is armed with an 18-megapixel rear camera that comes with Schneider-Kreuznach optics, optical image stabilization, autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash light.
