Toronto: In a bid to win back its traditional corporate and government customers, Blackberry has unveiled a new 4.5-inch square-shaped Passport smartphone.

The Passport's square display gives it a different look than previous Blackberry models.

It also has a new version of BlackBerry's signature qwerty keyboard - one that can be swiped to scroll through content on the screen above, Wall Street Journal reported.

"We think it is going to exceed our expectations but it is a wait and see for us as the phone's square shape is somewhat 'polarising',” Ron Louks, head of BlackBerry's devices business, was quoted as saying.

The Passport will cost $599 in the US.
