BlackBerry Passport with 4.5 inch display square display announced

After initially revealing the much awaited smartphone, BlackBerry has officially announced the BlackBerry Passport.


BlackBerry has announced the launch of the BlackBerry Passport, which is the company’s unique high-end smartphone. The phone has a boxed shaped design with a wide portrait screen, which according to the company would suit productivity better than any other narrow screen in the market, hence being ideal for enterprise users. While there is a three row QWERTY keyboard, the phone also has touch enabled keys.

The BlackBerry Passport has a 4 inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and super high resolution of 1440 x 1440 pixels which results in a 453 ppi density. Despite being a high-end smartphone, the device is powered by the almost outdated Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz but with a massive 3 GB of RAM.

The BlackBerry Passport has a 13 MP rear facing camera with 6DOF OIS, BSI sensor and a 5-element f/2.0 lens. There is also a front facing 2 MP fixed focus camera. The device runs on the latest BlackBerry OS version 10.3 with a massive 3450 mAh battery. The handset is priced at $599. We also expect the handset to be launched in India early next week.
