More devices from BlackBerry
Separately, there are reports suggesting that BlackBerry has collaborated again with Porsche, but this time to design the Passport. Previously BlackBerry and Porsche have come together to give a new look to BlackBerry phones. Selected images of the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9984 “Keian” surfaced over the China-based DT BlackBerry.
The Passport was officially launched at MWC 2015, where the Canadian company also talked about the plans, but not much was revealed apart from the name, giving hints that there could be a Porsche Design version of the Passport.
Not much can be said if the images are of the Passport, but it definitely looks like it. The keyboard shown in the picture looks similar to that of the BlackBerry Passport. Similarly, the screen in the picture matches that of the device. As of now, there is no official announcement about the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9984, therefore, nothing can be said with certainty.
On the product front, the Canadian smartphone maker is surely expanding its offerings for customers. Recently, the BlackBerry “Oslo,” a new version of Passport, was in the news. Although there is no clarity on the market the new device will target, there is a possibility that it could be the Passport 2. Separately, DT BlackBerry has come out with a new screenshot revealing a closer look at the keyboard.
