BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983 visits the FCC prior to September 17th unveiling

BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983 visits the FCC prior to September 17th unveiling
It was back in 2011 when a strange looking BlackBerry model first came to our attention. With a futuristic looking physical QWERTY, this was the BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9981. The phone, which first looked like a fake, turned out to be legit, carrying the same specs seen on the BlackBerry Bold 9900.

The BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9982 came along a couple of years later, and had a different look because the device was based on the all-touch BlackBerry Z10. Both Porsche Design models were offered at the very Porsche-like price of $2000. With new CEO John Chen in charge of a massive turnaround, the continued life of the Porsche Design series was in question this year.

But now, it appears that the Porsche Design Berry will get at least another year. We've seen leaked images of the Porsche Design P'9983, and have even passed along the rumored specs of the phone. The 3.1 inch OLED screen offers a 720 x 720 resolution. This is a box-like display, just like the 1440 x 1440 resolution on the BlackBerry Passport. The phone has just paid a visit to the FCC, one of the last things handset manufacturers do before unveiling a phone headed for the states.

As it is, the BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983 is expected to be unveiled on September 17th,
