BlackBerry Passport price revealed! Will be available very soon

The upcoming BlackBerry Passport smartphone is a revolutionary, high-end BlackBerry device with innovative design & functions. If you’re not aware of it yet, the phone has 4.5″ QHD display running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor powered by 3GB of RAM & a massive 3450mAh battery. It sports a newly designed physical keyboard which also serves as a trackpad. The phone is set to launch in BlackBerry’s “See the Bigger Picture” event on 24th September – 2014. Until today we haven’t received any price point but thanks to Qatar’s mega mobile store StarLink for leaking it before anyone else.


According to StarLink, the BlackBerry Passport will be available for Qr. 2,699 which makes it around $742 USD (Rs. 44,800) and StarLink’s customers can pre-book theirs today! The tag is similar to last year’s  flagship model & there’s nothing surprising about it. The BlackBerry Passport is next to none & is a one of a kind smartphone with its unique big square screen display. The phone will be available in two colors – Black & White as expected. Unfortunately, the store has not revealed its availability date but we won’t be surprised if BlackBerry starts selling it in Canada, UK & in the Middle East from the next day of launch. BlackBerry Passport is expected to launch in India in October with a similar price tag. And if you think it is overpriced, see around for other brand flagship smartphones tags before commenting 😉
