One of the highly leaked BlackBerry smartphones called by the codename Passport will be finally launched this month. The moment we are now waiting for is the 24th day of September. Moreover, BlackBerry has scheduled three separate events to lunch the phone.
These events would be taking place in Toronto, London and Dubai on the same day. Even though the invite doesn't highlight anything specific regarding the Passport, it just reads, "See the Bigger Picture." However, the most expected device at the approaching event is only BlackBerry Passport.
If the specs of the phone are concerning you, and if the rumors are to be taken into account, than we are basically awaiting the 4.5-inch device with a display resolution of 1440 x 1440 pixels. It is said that the screen would be protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 layer.
As far as the processor is concerned, the BlackBerry passport would be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974-AA) processor clocked at 2.2 GHz aided by 3GB of RAM. The handset will have 32GB of built-in storage, expandable even further via microSD cards.
Even the imaging aspect of the phone would be pretty impressive. It is reportedly said that the phone will come with a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED Flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Rumors also hint at a 4K video recording capability.
The Passport's dimensions are said to measure 128 x 90.3 x 9.3mm, and it shall weigh 194.4g. Other specs include: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.0 LE, SlimPort, NFC, GPS + GLONASS and a 3450mAh integrated non-removable battery.
BlackBerry might also launch the Porsche Design P '9983 smartphone at the same event, because according to the company's 2014 roadmap that was leaked recently, the Porsche Design P '9983 was also mentioned to launch within September this year.
