BlackBerry Passport seems to pop up every time people discuss the future plans of BlackBerry and we’ve already seen specs and hands on pics associated to this model. We’ve seen it in the hands of the BlackBerry CEO and we’ve also seen it on various other occasions, but always in black. Today we catch a glimpse of the white version.

BlackBerry Passport is expected to have a 3450 mAh non removable battery, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and a LCD display. It will also have a microSD card slot and a SIM card slot, both placed at the top.
