The latest handset from the struggling Canadian company has had its specifications released earlier than intended.
September will be a month in which a number of new mobile devices will be hitting the market shelves, and while the BlackBerry Passport is one of them, it seems that the company wasn’t quite able to keep the smartphone’s specifications hidden quite that long.
Mobile device makers are finding it increasingly difficult to stop this type of information from leaking ahead of schedule.
A couple of months ago, the company announced that it would be formally introducing the BlackBerry Passport in September. The specific date has never been released, but the handset maker did describe a number of the features that consumers will be able to expect from the device. That was the full extent of the official information that has been released about this upcoming smartphone.
However, a full specifications sheet for the BlackBerry Passport has now appeared online.
It is unknown whether or not the Passport spec sheet is genuine, but it is being taken seriously by experts who have seen it. If that is the case, this could be the world’s first glimpse at what BlackBerry will be bringing to its uniquely shaped future smartphone.

The specs were released in the form of a video by a major retailer in the United Kingdom. It provided details about the smartphone that had previously not been released. As the video went live earlier than intended, the retailer did take it back down again, but not before it was heavily circulated and readily seen across the internet.
The full spec sheet showed that the smartphone comes with a 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. It has a considerable 3GB of LPDDR3 800MHz RAM, as well as an Adreno 330 graphics processor. The mobile device will have 32GB of storage, with an additional 64GB possible through microSD cards.
The BlackBerry Passport has a 4.5 inch diagonal display and the spec sheet said that its resolution is 1,440 by 1,440 pixels, with a 1:1 aspect ratio with additional protection through Corning Gorilla Glass 3. That would provide the device with the highest resolution of any smartphone from the company.
