Blackberry Passport Spec Sheet Confirms 4.5" Screen, 13MP Camera, and More

If you are a BlackBerry fan and can’t wait to get your hands on the next flagship smartphone that’s about to hit the market, the Passport, then you will be pleased to know that the full specs sheet of the device has just been leaked online.

Although some of the major features already appeared on the Internet weeks ago, there are still some tidbits of information that might be of interest to you, such as the camera and connectivity options. But first things first: one of the major concerns for those who consider buying the BlackBerry Passport that of not being able to fit it in their pocket due to its unusual square form factor. Well, according to the specs sheet leaked by N4BB, BlackBerry Passport measures 128 x 90.3 x 9.3mm (9.6mm at camera location) and weighs 194.4g (battery included), which makes it rather heavy for a 4.5-inch device. Moving on to the insides of the Passport, there are no surprises, as the leaked document confirms what we already knew. BlackBerry Passport will be equipped with a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon (MSM8774-AA) processor, an Adreno 330 graphics processing unit clocked at 450MHz, and no less than 3GB of RAM.

The smartphone also packs 32GB of internal memory, which should be enough even for heavy users, but in case you need more storage, you can add up to 64GB via microSD card slot which is located under the back cover, not on any of the phone’s sides. The Passport’s 4.5-inch display supports 1440 x 1440 pixels resolution (1:1 aspect ratio) and 453dpi (dots per inch). It also comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for extra protection and 10-point multi-touch. Now the big news is that BlackBerry decided to include a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera that features OIS (optical image stabilization), LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording at 60fps. Also, the main camera has a 5-element f2.0 lens, back side illumination, and 5x digital zoom.

In the front, there’s a secondary 2-megapixel camera with fixed-focus, 3x digital zoom, which can also capture 720p videos. This one’s more than decent to take selfies or for video calls. Connectivity-wise, BlackBerry Passport offers a wide range of options, including LTE, HSPA+, Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Energy), dual-band Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS support and NFC (Near Field Communication). Keep in mind that it will only accept nano-SIM cards. Last but not least, the upcoming handset is powered by a high-capacity 3450mAh battery that should provide about 19 hours of usage + 8 hours of standby time when BlackBerry Power User Profile is selected. What do you think about BlackBerry Passport’s hardware? Do you still want it or do you want it even more now?
