BlackBerry just announced its next smartphone and, as expected, it’s the Passport Silver Edition.
The device is available to Canadians for $649 unlocked. It features a stainless steel frame and specs similar to the original Passport. Inside of that rugged frame is a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 3450mAh battery and a 4.5-inch Quad HD display.
Moreover, there are some notable improvements over original, including a textured back surrounded by “refined, curved corners,” a bigger speaker, a redesigned 13 megapixel OIS camera and BlackBerry OS 10.3.2.
Scott Wenger, Global Head of Design at BlackBerry, said, “We strive to deliver products that combine cutting-edge technology with purposeful, globally recognized design, and the BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition is the latest manifestation of this vision. It brings together BlackBerry’s latest OS platform, enhanced productivity features, and a refined industrial design based on customer and user feedback to deliver an unmatched experience for professionals who value precision and focus.”
