BlackBerry launches the Passport Silver Edition, out today

Vlad, 04 August, 2015

Today BlackBerry has simultaneously announced and released a new version of its Passport smartphone. This one is called BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition, and it's silver - unlike the model that's been selling so far, which is black.

Aside from the new color, the new iteration brings with it a stainless steel frame for a premium look. In terms of specs, however, there's no difference between this and the original black Passport.



So you'll get the same 4.5-inch 1,440x1,440 square touchscreen, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC with 2.26 GHz quad-core Krait CPU, the 13 MP rear camera with OIS and LED flash, the 2 MP front-facing unit, and the 3,450 mAh battery. The BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition runs BlackBerry OS 10.3.2.

It's already available to purchase in the US from BlackBerry itself for $549 in unlocked form. For a limited time, if you buy one you'll also get some free accessories worth $130. The device will make its way to the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands "in the coming weeks".

Are the processors on the BlackBerry Passport Black and BlackBerry Pasport Silver the same or is one better that the other?

I love B 's! The majority of cell phones for me have been a BB. I have had the BB Priv for the last 3 yrs. This has been the worst mistake I have made in my life!!! I had to send the cell phone back three times. It's always HOT! It gives a mess...
