BlackBerry might have faded over time, but the company still stands tall when it comes to its future lineup. The company on Thursday released its financial report for the latest quarter, and at the same time BlackBerry also announced the arrival of the so-called "BlackBerry Passport" that's coming later in September.
BlackBerry's CEO John Chen at the company's earnings report and annual meeting confirmed that the much-talked about square-shaped 'Windermere' smartphone will be officially called BlackBerry Passport. Earlier known as BlackBerry ‘Windermere', the new flagship phone will be released later this year in a London-based event.
BlackBerry Passport will likely to come with a square-shaped screen, which will be bigger than a 4-inch and will sport a resolution of 1440 x 1440. The forthcoming device is expected to come fitted with a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 3450mAh removable battery. The Passport will indeed come with a QWERTY key-board, which will reportedly function like a trackpad.
Alongside the launch of the BB Passport, BlackBerry also introduced the Classic. The handset is essentially a revamped BlackBerry Bold. Of course, the new phone is running on the BlackBerry 10 OS. It is said to release in November.
The Canadian-handset manufacturer also confirmed the launch of super affordable touch screen wonder, the Z3, in India on June 25. The company has already sent out invitations for the event scheduled for next week.
