BlackBerry has got people talking with whatever information it has shared about its upcoming high-end smartphone called the BlackBerry Passport. So far the company has unveiled some of the major features that this device has, including but not limited to a touch enabled keyboard. A video has been posted online which stars a leaked unit of the Passport and it gives us an idea of how webpages render on the device’s square display and more importantly how the keyboard can be used to scroll.

The company itself has detailed the touch enabled keyboard on the Passport in a lengthy blog post. It has never been done before on a BlackBerry so it would be something new for the fans of this company. Combine that with BlackBerry’s predictive typing technology and users might be in for a wonderful typing experience.

BlackBerry also revealed recently that the Passport is going to have a 3,450mAh battery, one of the largest out there, so users wouldn’t need to be wall huggers. The device has four microphones which aim to provide the best call experience by picking up ambient noise and adjusting voice call levels accordingly.

The video provides a good look at the Passport’s design as well which is nothing if not unconventional. Its a square device with the best display yet on a BlackBerry. Do take a look and let us know if this device has peaked your interest.
