BlackBerry is going to launch its uniquely designed Passport smartphones in India on September 29th. The firm has sent out media invites to us for the launch of its new QWERTY smartphones in New Delhi, scheduled after its launch in Toronto, London and Dubai on September 24. With the launch of its Passport handsets, BlackBerry is hoping to regain its lost traction.

According to leaks, the square-shaped Blackberry Passport is likely to feature a 4.5-inch (1440 x 1440 pixels), a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor coupled with a 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM. It will also feature a 13-megapixel primary and a 2-megapixel front camera. The connectivity options of the device may include 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, SlimPort and NFC.

With a 3450mAh battery, the Passport promises to last an entire day on full charge. It will run BlackBerry’s next-generation BlackBerry OS 10.3, which is rumoured to feature BlackBerry Assistant – not much different from Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana.

While the specifications of the BlackBerry Passport are still elusive, its pricing has not been kept under wraps. BlackBerry CEO John Chen was quoted by The Wall Street Journal as saying that it will be priced at around Rs 36,000 ($599).
