This is certainly going to be a surprise for you all as Blackberry is back in the smartphone industry. Yes, you heard that right, the company that was once the most popular smartphone brand is finally in the works of a new smartphone. The 5G Blackberry phone is expected to release in North America and Europe in the first quarter of 2021. The fact that this phone will be different from others is that it’ll have a physical keyboard on the front. Something like that has never been so feasible before.
Only a few specs of the Blackberry phone are yet known. One of them is that the 5G Blackberry phone will work on 5G connectivity and also its software will be Android. Today, on 20th August, a security startup, OnwardMobility announced the news of releasing a 5G enabled Android Blackberry phone.

In this year’s February, TCL reported not to renew the deal with Blackberry and in August, it stopped selling the services.
But now thanks to OnwardMobility, Blackberry might get one more chance. The Texas-based company said the newest Blackberry will be secure, sleek, and stylish. OnwardMobility is planning to work closely with Blackberry and FIH Mobile Limited. FIH Mobile Limited is basically a subsidiary of Foxconn Technology Group. The company on its website said;
