    Ok, so I'm trying to find the dimensions and in my search some sites are saying it does not have NFC and there seems to be little info on the size itself. Also says no hdmi, but does that mean hdmi port or that it can't have hdmi out. Would slimport work to connect to a monitor/tv/projector?

    Does anyone know all of the confirmed specs.

    No, nothing has been officially released. Take a look here: Everything we know about the BlackBerry Priv Android Slider | CrackBerry.com
    This will be updated as new info is confirmed.

    If it doesn't have NFC that would be a major failure. Google Wallet is ramping up and electronic payments such as Apple Pay will become increasingly standard features.

    I would think the Priv would have NFC at launch, it's pretty much a standard these days.

    Ok, so I'm trying to find the dimensions...
    None of the specs have been confirmed by BlackBerry but from the renders and other information it looks like the Priv is about 6.0 inches high (about 7.3 with the keyboard extended) and about 2.9 inches wide. That makes it longer than the Z30, the Leap, and the Samsung S6 Edge but shorter than the iPhone 6 Plus.

    Edit: I'd say it's about 9.5 mm thick after scaling and comparing the recent renders to other devices.

    Check John Chen's demo video.. NFC is on and you could see the indicator at the top. Z30 to Passport move eliminated the hdmi port and bought in slim port capabilities. Adding hdmi port again or removing the feature is a downgrade... Priv would definitely have the option...

    Almost guaranteed. Priv isn't a budget flagship like the OnePlus Two which doesn't have NFC for a few bucks cost savings.

    If even the BB7 line (back before NFC payments were a thing) had NFC, then this has to.

    Unless BlackBerry is treating this as a fourth world budget model, which they aren't (and probably never will again).

    Thanks guys! For those saying it is 9.5mm thick, that is the same as passport... not thick at all.

    I'm more interested in finding out how big the battery is or average run time.

    All these various chats about specs, dimensions, battery size and so forth. When, oh when, will we see something official?

    I believe this latest Stage Fright issue will give then a reason to push it back. The longer they push it back, the worse it will be. By the time they release it, the 808 processor will be 2 generations behind and the other specs will look dated. Oh well.

    The longer you guys are waiting and writing the more will your feelings turn negative. I experienced this with the long wait for the N900, I bought the Motorola Milestone instead.

    I recommend living your lives and focus on something more important and fun.

    The Priv will be a great device, and it will be released this year, that's a fact. I am really happy that BlackBerry at least confirmed this Android device, now it's just a matter of time until I hold my dream phone in hands.
