Back in July we talked about how a new BlackBerry smartphone came preloaded with the Amazon Appstore and today we’re going to take a look at the new BlackBerry Passport, a new and interesting smartphone from Blackberry.
This new BlackBerry Passport is BlackBerry’s last attempt at being present on the smartphone market that it once dominated. Its last failure was the BlackBerry 10 platform that didn’t do very well in terms of sales.
Having taken a quick look at the new BlackBerry Passport we go out on a limb here and say that BlackBerry has a winner on their hands. The phone may have a peculiar design, as the smartphone is almost a perfect square with a physical keyboard, but the technical specifications are really impressive and up to par with the latest flagship models from the tech giants that are dominating the smartphone market.
The New BlackBerry Passport – The Next Big Thing
The new BlackBerry Passport will feature a 4.5 inch display with 1440×1440 pixel resolution and a pixel density of 453 ppi. It will also have a 32 GB internal memory, 3 GB of RAM memory and a 13 MP rear camera with a BSI sensor. The quad-core Snapdragon processor has a 2.2 GHz speed and the battery’s pretty great too, 3450 mAh!
The new BlackBerry Passport will be introduced tomorrow, September 24 in Dubai, Toronto and London and 15 days later, it will launch in stores around the world. The price of a contract-free BlackBerry Passport is going to be $599, a bit below Apple’s new iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S5.
The Canadian company was one of the most important companies to influence our smartphone culture and without it we probably wouldn’t be where we are today. Are you going to buy the new BlackBerry Passport?
