BlackBerry has already promised that it has more Android handsets coming in 2016, and that they’ll be cheaper than the Priv — but that’s about all we know. However, thanks to leaked images, we can take a sneak peek at them ahead of their official unveilings.

BlackBerry has started rolling out its latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to all Priv handsets, just two weeks after it kicked off its beta test.

The release brings features like Doze and Google Now on Tap, plus slow-motion video recording, improved typing, a greater BlackBerry Hub experience, and more.

If the only thing that puts you off the BlackBerry Priv is its hefty price tag, then this deal is like your birthday and Christmas rolled into one. Kind of.

For a limited time only, DailySteals is offering new and unlocked Priv handsets for just $449.99 — that’s a whopping $200 off the usual price.

BlackBerry has started rolling out its first phase of Marshmallow beta releases for the Priv.

Those who were first to signup for the beta earlier this month can expect to receive a software update over-the-air — but only if they’ve followed BlackBerry’s instructions first.

CEO John Chen has promised that BlackBerry has two mid-range Android devices lined up for 2016 — one of which will feature a physical keyboard like the Priv, while¬†the other will be a full-touch device.
