BlackBerry fans are anxiously waiting for the company’s new device to be launched. The Passport was shown off first at BlackBerry’s annual shareholders meeting and there CEO John Chen told everyone that the device will be released in white as well as the standard black color. All of the material that the company has shared regarding the Passport has depicted the device in black. Naturally its fans were curious about how the device would look in white. BlackBerry today officially showed off the Passport in white.
Its not like the company wasn’t beaten to the punch. Yesterday an image surfaced online from an unofficial source which gave us our first look at the white Passport. A concept had already been published online a few weeks back.
BlackBerry explains that the team chose this exact shade of white to work with the “warmth of the unique, stainless steel frame.” The color is custom to BlackBerry. There a “porcelain feel” coating on the rear cover which will be smooth to the touch while also providing grip and complementing soft touch coating that is used on the black Passport.
There you have it then, the BlackBerry Passport in white. The device itself is going to be officially announced this September, information about pricing and availability is scarce at this point in time.
