BlackBerry unveils Passport Silver Edition smartphone
BlackBerry Limited unleashed the square screen Passport smartphone back in late 2014, and now they release an upgraded version on the US market, called Passport Silver Edition. This smartphone has about the same features and specs as the original, but sports a refined design and also comes with $130 worth of free bonus accessories.
According to BlackBerry's Global Head of Design Scott Wenger, the Passport Silver Edition "brings together BlackBerry’s latest OS platform, enhanced productivity features, and a refined industrial design based on customer and user feedback to deliver an unmatched experience for professionals who value precision and focus." This handset offers up to 30 hours of mixed use, comes preloaded with BlackBerry OS 10.3.2, and has the same specs as the existing Passport - Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage, 4.5-inch square IPS display, 13 MP camera with OIS and LED flash, as well as a physical QWERTY keyboard.
BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition can already be purchased in North America via ShopBlackBerry.com for $549 USD. Global availability will follow soon. In the US, customers who order the handset before August 19 are eligible for the gifts package mentioned earlier. For more details, please check the press release below.
