BlackBerry announces new ‘Passport’ smartphone

June 22, 2014

The company is making a comeback with a new smartphone, reportedly to launch in September.

If you are a big fan of BlackBerry (I know some who still are), then you may be pleased to know that BlackBerry has just announced a new and upcoming smartphone – the Passport, which the company has confirmed earlier this week. It may be called Passport since the 4.5-inch device seems to resemble the thing you always present at immigration.

Armed with a quad-core processor and 3 GB of RAM, the Passport also comes with a 1440 x 1440 resolution on a square-shaped screen. Situated below is the now smaller, three-row keyboard. Yes, BlackBerry still hasn’t ditched the main thing most users love about their phones but the main difference is that they keys are now fully capacitive, kind of like the touch-sensitive controls you find on most appliances. This means the entire smartphone solely relies on touch from the screen to the keyboard.

The BlackBerry Passport is rumored to be available in September this year, which conicides with Apple’s own iPhone launch.
