A lot of new devices are going to be released next month and BlackBerry is one of the companies that will be trying its luck in the market come September. The company revealed a couple of months back that it will be formally announcing the BlackBerry Passport in September. The date is yet to be announced but already BlackBerry has described quite a few of the Passport’s salient features. A purported full spec sheet of the upcoming smartphone has appeared online, giving us what might be our first look at full specifications of the BlackBerry Passport.
Recently a video was posted online by a major UK retailer, it also brought certain details about the smartphone to light that were previously unknown. Since the video went live ahead of time the retailer did pull it, but since this is the internet after all, it never really disappeared.
Folks at N4BB claim to have received the full spec sheet of the Passport. It reveals that the smartphone has a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with Adreno 330 graphics processor and a hefty 3GB of LPDDR3 800MHz RAM. There’s 32GB of onboard storage with support for microSD cards up to 64GB.
The 4.5-inch diagonal display with 1,440×1,440 pixel resolution has a 1:1 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for superior protection. It has the highest resolution yet on a BlackBerry smartphone. The Passport also appears to have a 13 megapixel rear camera with autofocus and Optical Image Stabilization as well as a LED flash. Up front there’s a 2 megapixel shooter.
The entire specs list also reveals supported carrier bands, connectivity features, quite a few sensors and the most important item of all, the 3,450mAh battery.
BlackBerry hasn’t commented on the leaked specifications list of the Passport but it seems to be in line with all of the rumors we have heard about the Passport. If these specifications really are true then BlackBerry fans have one mighty beast coming their way.
