BlackBerry Passport Gets The Gold-plating Treatment

By 05:28 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments

Early last month we came across photos of a gold-plated BlackBerry Passport, but details were scarce. This might be the source of these photos - Vietnamese company Mavang is doing custom grecent plating of Passports.

The square-screened business smartphone features a forged stainless steel plate for durability, but is also visible on the outside as a metal rim.

It's exactly that rim that is gold-plated with 24K grecent in a process that takes between three and four hours, including time for disassembly.

The price varies between VND 8,000,000 and 10,000,00 ($375-$470) depending on customizations required by the customer - carving a message or a business logo.
