A new company, OnwardMobility, is picking up the BlackBerry torch. OnwardMobility is licensing the BlackBerry brand and promises a 5G BlackBerry phone with a physical keyboard in North America and Europe in the first half of 2021. OnwardMobility will be responsible for product planning and market development, while FIH Mobile — a subsidiary of Foxconn — will handle design and manufacturing, "under strict guidelines to ensure component, device and supply chain integrity." The last company to make BlackBerry-branded phones was TCL, which launched a handful of Android-based BlackBerry phones from 2016 to 2018.

Using the flagship benchmark of the Blackberry Passport SE, tweak the design to allow for Android, maintain the best in the world security, and install flagship hardware.....Most of us have been tired of iphones and iphone clones for quite a while. Thank you Blackberry!
