BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB)’s Passport is expected to come in black and white colors, according to new videos of the device, which is expected to launch in September. In the past few months, there has been a string of reports and rumors about the square-shaped phone from the company, and just a few days back, BlackBerry officially unveiled it live with its pre-registration page for Passport phones.
White color was expected
There was a leaked image of the white Passport just a couple of weeks ago. Also CEO John Chen announced that the Passport will come in white too. However, this is the first video showing the two colors of the phone. The Waterloo, Ontario-based company, said that users who ditched BlackBerry phones in the past for Android or iOS handsets are showing interest in the Passport.
BlackBerry announced on its official page that it has started taking pre-registrations for the Passport. The page is now live, and potential buyers and fans can register to receive the latest information on the phone, its availability and other details.
BlackBerry passport Features and specs
The BlackBerry Passport is uniquely designed, and to some, it is even an odd design. The smartphone has a display screen of 4.5-inches with a screen resolution of 1,440 x 1,440 pixels and a pixel density of 453 ppi. The metrics indicate that the display will be extraordinary. The phone will allegedly run on the Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM, and it will have a powerful battery pack of 3450 mAh. The Passport will run on the BlackBerry 10.3 OS, which has already been launched.
The Passport offers both a touch screen and QWERTY keypad so that users can get the best of both worlds. The keypad is confined to three rows, and it also works as a track pad. Punctuation marks and numbers will not be given on the keyboard. Rather, it will appear on a virtual keyboard on the screen. For instance, the symbol @ will be on the virtual keyboard rather than on the keypad. Additionally, the phone will have 32 GB internal storage and a microSD card slow that makes the smartphone expandable up to 64GB. The device weighs 6 ounces and sports a 13MP primary camera and 2MP secondary camera.
