At least 2 BlackBerry smartphones to be launched in 2018

Building upon the successful global launch of the award-winning BlackBerry KEYone and introduction of BlackBerry Motion more recently to select markets, TCL Communication is preparing for additional portfolio expansion in 2018.
This begins with an all-new color variant and dual SIM version of BlackBerry KEYone — Bronze Edition — to be released in select markets across Asia, Europe and the Middle East later in Q1.
“It has been less than one year since we formally introduced the world to our all-new BlackBerry smartphones and we’ve seen very strong renewed interest thanks to devices like BlackBerry KEYone and BlackBerry Motion,” said Alain Lejeune, global general manager for BlackBerry Mobile.
“With new BlackBerry smartphones from TCL Communication now available in over 50 countries around the world, we have a solid foundation to continue building upon our portfolio in the new year. This means customers can expect to see at least two new BlackBerry smartphones from us later this year.”
“BlackBerry phones are the world’s most secure Android smartphones because we’ve designed security into every possible piece of software,” said Alex Thurber, SVP and GM of Mobility Solutions, BlackBerry.
“We are excited that TCL Communication has decided to bring the BlackBerry Motion with its outstanding battery life and its touchscreen interface to the United States, in addition to introducing a dual-SIM variant of the highly regarded BlackBerry KEYone for global markets. In 2018 we will be working closely with TCL Communication to roll out Android 8.0 Oreo™, including additional security and other features, to continue to expand the overall BlackBerry smartphone user experience.”
