BlackBerry recently confirmed the two high-end devices that it is going to release later this year. The first to hit the market will be BlackBerry Passport. Its a phablet of sorts that takes design cues from actual passports. The device is wide and looks unlike many smartphones found on the market today. This rather unique design has got people talking about the smartphone and BlackBerry can certainly do with attention for its products. Several images of the device have appeared online, showing us just how different it is from the rest.

The display is believed to be under 5-inches with a 1,440×1,440 pixel resolution. It is certainly the highest pixel density ever on a BlackBerry device. There aren’t that many details available about the specifications right now, the company will talk about this device in great detail during the launch event, which is currently scheduled to take place in London this September.

Twitter user @halobandit appears to have got a BlackBerry Passport in their possession and have tweeted out countless pictures of the device, no doubt appreciated by countless BlackBerry fans who have been waiting on the manufacturer to come up with something new.


BlackBerry Passport’s keyboard is said to be one of its biggest features. The hardware full QWERTY keyboard is said to support gestures and even function as a trackpad. It may not be enough to return BlackBerry to its glory days, but it just might be enough to appease its loyal fanbase.
