The BlackBerry Passport has been in the rumor mill for a while and this is not the first time we see it online, but the new video produced by U.K. retailer Carphone Warehouse is surely the best one showing the handset that has hit the Web so far. The hands-on video available at the end of this article reveals a few key features and the interesting layout of the upcoming BlackBerry 10.1 OS-powered smartphone.

Unlike any of its possible competitors, the BlackBerry Passport has a square screen with a diagonal size of 4.5 inches. These are its alleged features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 800
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 64 GB
  • Display: 4.5-inch capacitive multitouch with 1440 x 1440 pixels and 453 ppi
  • Cameras: front webcam (unknown resolution), 10 MP back 
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, dual band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n with hotspot, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 LE with A2DP, micro USB 2.0, NFC, GPS with A-GPS
  • Operating system: BlackBerry 10.1
  • Battery: embedded lithium-ion 3,450 mAh

The BlackBerry Passport will also feature a voice-enabled personal assistant like Siri or Cortana, as well as a touch-sensitive QWERTY keyboard which can also be used as a large touchpad. Unfortunately, there is no information about the release date, availability or pricing at this time. We will surely keep you posted as more info on this handset shows up.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
