There is many paths that BlackBerry devices take before their official unveiling, and we've received solid proof today of the upcoming BlackBerry Priv being announced soon. As of October 7th, the Priv has been certified for Bluetooth 4.1 by the Bluetooth SIG.
The regional variants to get Bluetooth SIG certified include:
- RHK211LW (STV100-1)
- RHL211LW (STV100-3)
- RHM181LW (STV100-4)
In the past, devices have passed Bluetooth SIG certification approximately a month before their official launch, but that is not a sure bet for mid-November timeline for Priv launch.
Interestingly, the SIG certification mentions Software versions AACxxxx instead of Lollipop. This is due to the software nomenclature that BlackBerry is using for it's Android builds on BlackBerry Priv.
