Hardware Specs Of The Upcoming BlackBerry Passport Get Confirmed

The Passport certainly seems armed to the teeth.

 

We have been tracking the BlackBerry Passport since April so when CEO John Chen, revealed the smartphone at the recent Annual general meeting, the big question was, what comes inside? Well, after a lot of speculation and some leaked details, we finally have the complete list of specifications of this abnormally square smartphone.

The BlackBerry passport comes with the following hardware specs:

  • 4.5 inch LCD display with a 1:1 screen ratio sporting a resolution of 1440 x 1440 pixels that is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3
  • A slightly old, quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC clocked at 2.2 GHz and comes with an Adreno 330 GPU coupled with 3 GB of RAM
  • Included is 32 GB of internal memory (not sure if there will be a 16 GB variant) which can also be expanded via a micro SD card slot
  • The camera department delivers with a 13 MP f/2.0 primary camera set up with optical image stabilisation (OIS) and a 2 MP front-facing one for all those conference calls
  • The handset will include the usual radios being a BlackBerry and also comes with NFC along with a nano SIM card slot
  • Strangely, there are quite a few wired connectivity options in the form of USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and a SlimPort adaptor which can connect to HDMI, VGA and DVI options

The monstrous handset measures 128 x 90.3 x 9.3mm and weighs a pocket-heavy 194.4 grams all of which makes sense considering that the smartphone packs in a 3,450 mAh battery.

The handset as we already know and as confirmed by BlackBerry, will also sport the all-new touch capacitive physical keyboard. The keyboard allows one to navigate the UI via swipes and will definitely be a favourite with the BlackBerry faithful who have been missing out on a trackball or trackpad for long.
