Released alongside the BB Passport is this square-screened (3.5-inches, 720 x 720) model sporting the classic BlackBerry full QWERTY keyboard and navigation panel. The BlackBerry Classic's specs include a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 2GB worth of RAM to match. Probably in anticipation of business and multimedia use, its 16GB internal memory can be expanded to up to 128GB with a microSD card. This LTE-ready model also comes with BlackBerry's 2014 feature set, including the BB Hub, BB Assistant, and BBM video calling.
