Dubbed the “BlackBerry Assistant”, the virtual assistant will ship with the BlackBerry 10.3 OS when the latter arrives.

The BlackBerry Passport is one of the first phones that will grace BlackBerry’s new VA as the smartphone will pack it right from the box.

Not much was said about the new mobile assistant, but we can easily guess what to expect. It will look and work like the virtual assistants we already know — Siri, Cortana, Google Now and S Voice et al.

September is when the BlackBerry Passport will be unveiled and we expect the BlackBerry 10.3 OS with it’s new voice assistant to break cover at just about the same time.
