The long-awaited new BlackBerry Passport’s release has just been officially confirmed by the company’s CEO. The unveiling is scheduled to take place some time next month. Simultaneously, new more detailed leaks concerning the phone’s tech parameters surfaced on the net. If you’re interested in details, let’s take a look at the BlackBerry Passport killer specs.
BlackBerry Passport Specification List Revealed
Even if at first sight some of us may be a bit skeptical about the phone’s square LCD 4.5-inch 1,440×1,440 pixel of resolution display, it’s hard not to appreciate its pixel density of 453 ppi, which, if to believe the rumors, overshadows the one featured by the upcoming iPhone 6. Furthermore, the screen is reported to be made of durable Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The new BlackBerry Passport is supposedly said to measure 128×90.3×9.3mm and weight something around 194.4 grams.
Moving on to the handset’s specs, the BlackBerry Passport will tote Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset paired with 2.2GHz CPU, Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. It will sport 32GB of built-in storage that later can be expanded up to 64GB via microSD cards. As it comes to the phone’s optics, the new BlackBerry will be equipped with a 13-megapixel main shooter with Optical Image Stabilization, LED flash and video recording, and an additional decent 2-megapixel front-facing camera with image and video stabilization for selfies and conference calls. All these killer specs will be powered by a massive but non-removable 3,450 mAh battery, which will surely deliver the device’s prospective users long hours of work and entertainment.
Speaking of connectivity, the smartphone will support LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GSM, GPS and HSPA+. The handset will also feature nano-SIM card slot, USB 2.0 and 3.0, VGA, DisplayPort and HDMI (the last three will require a SlimPort adaptor). What’s even more interesting the device is rumored to be the first smartphone launched with the BlackBerry 10.3 OS and with the lately revealed voice-based virtual assistant called the BlackBerry Assistant.
The BlackBerry Passport will sport an innovative physical QWERTY keyboard which simultaneously can be use as a capacitive pad. So, you can scroll, move cursor and many more with moving your finger around on the top of the physical keys.
Summing up, all the rumored specs make us assume that the BlackBerry Passport will become a great success. Even if the manufacturer is taking a gamble on launching a handset with the raising doubts square display, their efforts may turn out to be worth taking the risk. So far, there are no details on the phone’s price tag and specified date of the official premiere.
