What's This?

A new version of Blackberry Passport is out. And it’s SILVER this time! Yes, Blackberry Passport Silver Edition, as the name suggests, is silver in color and has a stainless steel frame.


Set to be launched on Tuesday, the tech world was able to see Blackberry’s new baby on Monday as a retailer created a listing for this upcoming phone and posted a few pictures as well.  The Silver Edition is almost the same when compared to the previous smartphone, except the new version’s soft and rounded edges gives you a better grip.

All other specifications remain just the same for Silver Edition. Here’s a list of some notable features:

– 4.5-inch square Screen

Which Smartphone to Buy? Passport or Passport Silver Edition?

Apart from the silver frame and the rounded edges, there is no difference between the two. Passport Silver is definitely a better-looking phone. And phones these days are more about looks and features than calling and texting. Already in stores and selling for $549 in North America, it will soon be available in the international markets as well.

So if you are a Blackberry fan and looking to upgrade your phone, then Blackberry Passport Silver Edition is certainly a smartphone you can invest in.
