“The introduction of the red and the white BlackBerry Passport colors underscores our commitment to break through the sea of rectangular-screen, all-touch devices, offering different styles that meet mobile professionals’ personalities.” said BlackBerry executive chairman and CEO, John Chen.

BlackBerry’s flagship is priced at Rs 49,990 for the Indian customers. The device sports a 4.5 inch IPS LCD, perfectly square display with 1440 x 1440 pixel resolution.

The smartphone is powered by a 2.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 3GB RAM.

It comes with the new BlackBerry 10.3 OS onboard, which includes features as BlackBerry Assistant and a brand new BlackBerry Hub with Instant Actions. With BlackBerry 10.3, users also get access to the Amazon Appstore for Android and roughly 240,000 apps.

The device sports a 13MP rear OIS camera with BSI sensor and a 2MP front facing camera with a internal storage of 32GB which is expandable up to 128GB via Micro SD card.

It is juiced up by a 3450mAh battery, which claims to provide up to 30 hours of mixed usage battery life.
