    Interesting.
    But why would anyone Blur the image? Other than to hide photoshop imperfections maybe? Doesn't look like a motion or focus blur from camera, or even image resize blur.

    Blurred to just make a generic image to go with the article. The latest rumour has been that one device is all-touch and the other is a physical keyboard device. I would say the device on the left is a Nexus 6P and the device on the right is the PRIV.

    Hmm... Maybe the photo was taken with one of those early gen iPhones. :P

    Def the Priv, with a passport/classic pkb image pasted on top! Now make that a reality and I would buy in a nanosecond.

    Sadly I'm not sure which we would be more likely to see in the wild.... Bigfoot or a new BlackBerry device.

    I think Priv 2 is one of the devices, smaller version of current priv with upgraded specs, and second is an all touch, about the same size.

    Or literally any BB phone's front-facing camera (read: potato) before the Priv.

    For the sake of other people and for sales, they really should put a better camera up front. But for me I couldn't care less. If you catch me taking a "selfie" just shoot me because I guarantee you it's an alien or robot pretending to be me.

    I think most people over 22 are using their front-facing cameras for video calling and conferencing, which is why it's becoming increasingly highlighted in reviews and on people's wish lists for phone features.

    Except you don't need ultra-high resolution for video calling... What video calling service do you use that can go above the resolutions the 2MP camera can do??? You realize 1080p is about 2MP right? So technically speaking, the front camera can do video calling the same whether it is 2MP or 10MP unless you want to do 4k video calls...

    This is one of the core problems with BlackBerry and its audience. "You don't need it" (So you won't get it).

    If you want to excel at something, particularly in business, good enough doesn't cut it. BlackBerry made under performing weak hardware when they were the only show in town, but they haven't woken up to the point that the competition is making far better devices, for less money, that are selling more in a few hours than BlackBerry did in a month.

    Yes, 2mp may technically be capable of HD, the same way I can still drive a '72 pinto, but it's slow, breaks down a lot and is not as fun to drive as a 2017 Camaro.

    Wow, no wonder you use a Camaro as an example of good. Totally misunderstood my post. I never said that the device didn't need it. I specifically said in the post right before that I agree they need a better front camera but that *I* do not take selfies so *I* do not care about the front camera. The person I was speaking to responded that front cameras are used also for video calling, which I do, so I responded that it serves that purpose as good as any other camera, so *MY* situation regarding the need for a better front camera stays the same.

    Understand now? And FYI, anything is more fun than driving a new Camaro. Whoever designed the interior of that car and the dimensions of the pillars need to be fired... It's amazing when sitting in a bigger car like a Dodge Challenger feels like a smaller car than sitting in a freakin' Camaro.

    Maybe, I am pretty much the only person I know who doesn't take selfies, lol. There's definitely something wrong with me, haha.

    They can put a 1000hp engine in there with 950 ld-ft of torque, doesn't change the fact that the car is designed like crap where when you sit in it the A-pillar will cover most of your frontal peripheral view, everything inside is cheapy looking plastic, and you're in an extremely uncomfortable sitting position. I'll take the new GT350R myself if I had the money...
