BlackBerry Passport, the next flagship device from the Canadian mobile tech major, will support 4K video recording, suggests a new disclosure.

But the feature will not be available when the handset is unveiled, which is expected in September.

BlackBerry is currently looking at the 4K recording feature. If the testing is successful, the video capability will be added in the upcoming operating system, BlackBerry 10.3.1, for BlackBerry Passport, according to CrackBerry.

The information has been shared by developer/designer, DHabkirk through a Tweet that reads: "New 4K Device Screen Support in 10.3.1? No. 4K Video recording on the Passport, yes." He has also posted a screenshot to substantiate the leak.

According to reports, it would not be surprising to see the higher resolution video ability in the Passport, as the camera module inside the handset has been previously rumoured to support 4K video.

About four months ago, the company mentioned they were looking to add 4K video format on their iCanMakeItBetter site.

The Blackberry Passport is likely to house a 13 megapixel rear-camera with auto-focus and other camera technologies including Optical Image Stabilisation, a 5-element f2.0 lens, backside illumination, LED flash, 1080p HD video recording at 60fps, 6DOF video stabilisation, 5x digital zoom and touch to focus and image stabilisation.
