Nothing before has symbolized a successful, busy businessman or a powerful CEO more than a phone call from BlackBerry. In 2013, Blackberry was at its peak and in the United States alone, its mobile phones were used by 85 million users. Recently, however, it has been more of a synonym for a company that has not managed to adapt to new trends for so long that it has cut off its phones.

Phoenix? How many already?

The ragged mythical Phoenix rising from the ashes would be offered in conjunction with the BlackBerry, but there is probably no danger of such a thing. The Canadian manufacturer has tried it several times, it came up with its own BB10 operating system, which, although successful, did not interest anyone much, and the transition to full touch phones did not handle this icon well.

It was bought by TCL in 2016, under which it introduced several new but unsuccessful phones (the last in 2018), and at the beginning of last year this partnership ended. In August 2020, Blackberry merged with OnwardMobility, under which it would like to return to the mobile world.


Do you remember? – It’s official: BlackBerry ends with cell phones


5G and a typical keyboard

Peter Franklin, CEO OnwardMobility, in a recent interview, revealed that the BlackBerry phone will come later this year. The Chinese Foxconn and it should be a device with support 5G network and an iconic physical keyboard in BlackBerry style. It must be added that it will be a flagship model with the appropriate hardware. The alleged novelty will reach the markets in Europe, America and will look to Asia, but probably later.

The official date of the premiere is still unknown, as is the price, but according to Franklin, we will see a new phone as soon as possible, while the first promotions to sellers are currently underway.

But is anyone else interested in a BlackBerry phone? Will the return be successful, or will it just be noisy, without much interest? Let us know what you think!
