BlackBerry Passport looks hot in red, launch date set for Christmas

The BlackBerry Passport is one weird-looking smartphone but yet very attractive, and while it’s only available in black, the company is also planning to launch a white version. Well, you can add a third option to that list as the device has now been spotted in bright red.

Just so you know, the BlackBerry Passport is also available in gold, but not officially and this version comes plated with the 24K gold and not a cheap paint job, so it’ll cost you a premium, a minimum of $375 more. The white and black models of the phablet do look good, but the red version makes the phone even more glamorous than the premium Porsche Design P’9983.

The image embedded above says it all and N4BB notes that the new version along with the white option will be released on December 25. Additionally, the website highlights that Amazon has them up for pre-order at $699, but when we last checked only the black version was available.

It looks like the e-commerce website has pulled the listing mainly because it was prematurely published. Nevertheless, you can expect the phone to go back on pre-order in the coming days. The Passport has been a huge hit around the globe and it has also been sold out multiple times.
