We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – the BlackBerry Passport is one of the (if not the most) unique smartphone to be available in 2014. Thanks to the device with its square screen and keyboard that also works as a trackpad, the Canadian phone maker has become profitable again. Despite being a huge hit among BlackBerry fans and the enterprise market, there are few things about the smartphone’s design that doesn’t sit well with us. One of these is its rather sharp edges. It seems BlackBerry has come up with a redesigned Passport that comes with rounded edges (pictured below).
Like what you see? Unfortunately, if you’re looking to get your hands on the rounded BlackBerry Passport, you’re going to have to fly all the way to the US and become an AT&T customer. The US network operator has announced that it will exclusively offer the redesigned Passport. It didn’t mention when it would launch the device, but it did say that it would reveal more details in the coming weeks.
Although AT&T’s BlackBerry Passport sports more rounded corners, everything else under the hood remains the same. It still sports a 4.5-inch square screen with a resolution of 1440 x 1440 pixels, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, and 3 GB of RAM.
