According to a report, the Blackberry keyboard which was replaced by touchscreens will live on in a new 5G smartphone which is expected to release next year. The company mentioned in a joint release that the Texas-based OnwardMobility will work with a Foxconn Technology Group subsidiary on a Blackberry Smartphone.

They are claimed to be powered by Android software and tailored for 5G networks. Blackberry had announced earlier this years that the Chinese electronics group TCL would no longer have the rights to design, make or sell its smartphones as of the end of August.

Europe and North America

Peter Franklin, Chief Executive, OnwardMobility said “Enterprise professionals are eager for secure 5G devices that enable productivity, without sacrificing the user experience,” he also added that the Blackberry smartphones are known for protecting communications, privacy, and data. He also shared that the deal would “deliver a new 5G Android BlackBerry smartphone with a physical keyboard.” 

It has also been reported that the new smartphone would make its debut in Europe and North America. Along with this, the smartphone would be designed to appeal to the increasing number of people working remotely. 

Global smartphone market share 

Blackberry’s share of the global smartphone market has virtually become zero since domination in the the market with its keyboard design a decade ago.

With an increasing in the Apple’s iOS and Android-powered handsets with touchscreens prompted Blackberry to abandon the market to concentrate on Software and services. Earlier in 2016, the company had licensed its smartphone technology to TCL in 2016 in a failed effort to revive its fortunes. 

The agreement which has been announced recently would give OnwardMobility the right to develop, engineer, and market a BlackBerry 5G smartphone.
