BlackBerry Passport shows off weird dimensions alongside Bold 9900

BlackBerry Passport vs Bold 9900, we know who we're backing

The BlackBerry Passport has been caught on camera alongside its BlackBerry Bold 9900 sibling, with the image highlighting the new device’s frankly bizarre dimensions.

Having been formally announced last month ahead of an official release later this year, the BlackBerry Passport is an odd, squat device, with a little, three line QWERTY keyboard sat beneath a sizeable square display.

Although official press images of the Passport have already been issued, this is the first time we have seen the handset lining up alongside one of its older stable mates.

Unveiled last month, the BlackBerry Passport will hit UK retailers this September with a 4.5-inch display featuring an unusual square form and a 1440 x 1440 pixel resolution.

Running the BlackBerry 10.3 OS, the business-orientated Passport is designed for spreadsheet lovers and PDF readers. Rumoured to run a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and 3GB of RAM, the Passport will also be bestowed with an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera and a secondary 3.7-inch snapper up front.

Despite featuring a significantly smaller screen, the Passport lines up a 3.18-inches wide, making it considerably beefier than the 2.79-inch wide Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Talk about bias. How are the dimensions weird? is samsung released the same phone the title would read "intriguing" . Every phone now looks like every other phone. Quad this and quad that. All most people want is a super long lasting battery and functions they actually use regularly. The anti blackberry bias is simply silly at this point.

Those are the wrong dimensions for the Galaxy Note 3. The Note 3 is 3.12 inches wide, which would make the Passport only .06 inches wider. Hardly that big or noticeable of a difference.
