Well, we haven’t heard of Blackberry for quite a while now and it seems that the phone manufacturer has something quite entertaining to show us! Blackberry passport is this interesting handset which looks like a mini computer or so, with its already classic QWERTY keyboard and a huge screen. One of its most interesting features is that one can scroll the display by swiping across the physical keyboard.
A new video, recently posted on YouTube offers us a sneek peak of the device that is presently running on the newer Android Lollipop OS. Although its main operating system remains Android, Blackberry retains some of its centric features as well.
From the new leaks we can see that the screen can be easily optimized for pages that are too small for the great screen of the new Blackberry Passport. This can all be done via Quick Settings and there is also an option to launch the on-screen keyboard that can be accessed above the physical keyboard.
In terms of features and services, Blackberry will come along with a pre-installed Google Play Store and all the apps one is accustomed to see on an Android phone. Blackberry Messenger also made it way into the soft spots of the phone. We still don’t know whether Blackberry Hub will be present on the Android BB phones.
Apart from that, we still don’t know if Blackberry Passport will ever see the light of day, as all we have in our hands are some rumors spread all over the internet. The new models will most likely borrow some features from the BB10 like BlackBerry Hub.
All we know by now was revealed in a video shared by Dudu Tec Rock. More information in terms of specs and features is expected, in order to gain a more relevant overview on the new device.
It surely does look much more different than everything we have been accustomed with. While Apple and Samsung keep their focus on slim and tall phones, Blackberry goes in another direction and reveals a completely massive cellphone with lots of new features. The QWERTY keyboard is maybe one of the most important features that Blackberry has offered ever since its launch. It is one of the few cellphones that still keeps the classic way of writing on cell phones alive.
