    To be fair, the Passport is a 1440x1440 screen, so it wouldn't really make sense for them to downgrade from this since the Passport's battery already is a beast!

    Praise be unto our Lord, Squircle | Passport SQW100-1/
    While it is technically 1440p, being a 1:1 ratio gives it the same number of pixels to render as 1080p 16:9. It also happens to be a doubling from 720p, so app scaling would not be an issue. I also expect this to be another reason that BlackBerry would /should jump to 1440p for the slider.

    The screen maybe more efficient but the GPU will consume more battery to render everything in 1440p instead of 1080p, so the phone would be slower than the same one with a 1080p screen

    Mobilesyrup did not specify if it included energy that the GPU needs to render but I would assume that is included, as otherwise the screen would show nothing. Also, the new Exynos 7420 and Snapdragon 810 both continue the trend of increased overall performance and performance per watt figures, so you need to take into account the new hardware behind the rendering when talking about increased power drain and speed. I'm inclined to go with the latest in technology allows Samsung to have 1440p screens that use 20% less energy to run/render/whatever than last gen 1080p screens.

    Seeing that Blackberry now has a partnership with samsung, I would bet pretty strong that this screen will be the exact same screen that the Samsung S6 Edge has, they will just borrow it. So i bet it will be the 5.1-inch AMOLED display @ 1440 x 2560
