In February of this year, TCL, which owned the BlackBerry brand, announced it would cease production of the company’s smartphones. Now the license for the brand has been acquired by the American startup OnwardMobility.
OnwardMobility CEO Peter Franklin said a new BlackBerry smartphone is already in development. It is created in conjunction with the Foxconn plant and its subsidiary FIH Mobile.
Unfortunately, there are no characteristics of the device yet. We only know that it will definitely work under the Android operating system. In addition, the novelty will receive a physical QWERTY keyboard and support for the fifth-generation network (5G). The smartphone should be presented in 2021. It will be marketed in the US and Europe.
