BlackBerry has teamed up with Porsche multiple times over the past few years, resulting in devices being given a makeover and accompanied by a rather hefty price tag. That being said if you were after a BlackBerry Passport that would be given the Porsche Design treatment, you could be in luck.
Recently a couple of images have made their way online courtesy of China-based DT BlackBerry, and they are allegedly that of the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9984 “Keian”. The handset was officially announced at MWC 2015 where the Canadian company revealed their roadmap, but unfortunately apart from its name, not much else is known about the device, although many were hoping it would be the Porsche Design version of the Passport.
While we can’t confirm if it is, based on the leaked images of the screen and the keyboard, it certainly looks like it is a possibility. As you can see in the photo of the keyboard, the keys are rather wide, similar to that of the BlackBerry Passport. The photo of the screen also seems to hint that it has a rather wide display but since this isn’t to scale, it’s a bit hard to tell and it’s just speculation on our part.
No specific date has been given for the BlackBerry Porsche Design P’9984’s announcement so until we hear from either company in an official capacity, take it with a grain of salt for now.
