Report: Update after launch could give BlackBerry Passport 4K video capture
A report published Saturday, states that BlackBerry is testing out 4K video capture for the BlackBerry Passport. But don't expect to see the feature on the phone when the eagerly awaited model is unveiled later next month. Instead, if the company is happy with the results of the test, it will add the 4K video capture to the phone with the BlackBerry 10.3.1 update.

Like the rest of the phone, the Passport's rear camera offers some delectable specs. We are talking about a 13MP snapper with Auto Focus, Optical Image Stabilization, and an f/2.0 aperture which should allow for quality pictures in low-light situations. The camera will feature 1080p video at 60fps. The snapper has 5X digital zoom, continuous and touch to focus, and image stabilization.

No BlackBerry has ever hit the market so well spec'd. The 4.5 inch 1440 x 1440 screen, along with the unique QWERTY keyboard, gives the BlackBerry Passport a design that you either love a whole lot, or hate. BlackBerry users in the past might have been happy with their phone for work, but many would have a second phone (an Apple iPhone or Android model) for play. We get the sense that BlackBerry CEO John Chen, believes that those purchasing the Passport won't require a second phone.
