Maame Raggae, 03 Oct 20195G is still in its early stages and will even shoot up the prices of Blackberry phones further... moreFirst Blackberry 10 OS i.e QNX is alive and well, it is the premier Operating System developed by BlackBerry in Driverless or autonomous vehicles, something Android can not be.
Blackberry 10 App World closes on 12/31/2019 in under 2 months, so if you have a Blackberry 10 and have to flash your phone it is unlikely that the app would be there to reinstall
The reason why Blackberry is now Android is that Blackberry were too late in marketing a phone with a selfie / video call camera
The Z10, Z30, Q10, came out it 2013 considering Nokia released a keypad phone with a secondary camera in 2006
On to your point 5G is both phone user and network, the biggest task is on the network to deliver all the 5G services.
However all a user needs is a 5G capable handset in order to get the services offer.
All the phone manufacturers are doing is releasing their 4G flagship and building in a 5G modem.
Once you have a 5G capable handset, the 2020 upgrades will be better camera, etc, 5G is the biggie
Blackberry were late previously, note though others will release a 5G phone at a comparable price
A FYI the Japan 2020 Olympics will utilize 5G, Apples 5G iPhone is released after the Olympics closes
Hy blackberry I am big fan of you... presently I am using BlackBerry key one. And feeling so good. I request you to please make phone with you own software ...... Actually I don't like android...
Really like your own BlackBerry software vey much.
I using only 2G and 3G on my Blackberry KEY device and if I get a movie from friend or whatever it plays nicely < so if everyone goes to 5G , maybe I go to 4G . 5G is nice for multipleconnections or high video for some reason to eat your data, but will be mostly intresting for business, services and do your really 5G could bring your 4K or 8K streaming for your mobile device , yes ofcourse it could but what is the purposeon a 6 inch screen and you need a good data plan :).
No , I think consumers go for 4G to watch netflix in HD and Youtube.
Michael J, 04 Oct 2019admin what was wrong with my comment? just wrote about 5g and battery life.Atleast one manufacturer has a brain. 5g doesn't work normal, only if you stay at the street and staring at the telegraph pole with the antenna. And it eats your battery ''fast''. Same reason why BB doesn't have screens with extra high resolution. Not necessary and eat your battery.

5G is at best future-proofing, tough there is no proof this tech is future proof for all we know the 6G can make both 4G & 5G obsolete and replace both... V-V
no plan to launch any phone
not just 5g
its more than 1 year...no phone
its broken company
my first dealings with Blackberry were with the Storm and storm 2, followed then by the torch. they were very good handsets in my opinion at the time, but soon fell behind the other manufacturers.
to launch another Blackberry now would require a handset that can match or beat the likes of the latest ios and android handsets and a massive campaign to get the buyers interested again, without this the brand would struggle like Nokia did after the N series of handsets
Imtiaz , 04 Oct 2019WonÂ’t blackberry brings new phone in market?Hello.TCL will continue to launch BB phone around the world,but no with the 5G,because it's really earlier ,and will continue with the 4G.The timeline for the new launch was not relesed yet,but i think at least at the end of the year,or CES 2020,we willknow more about the new generation Blackberry.Thank you.
5G's least interesting adaptation is in mobile phone market as it brings nothing on the table. What does end user get with their 5G tphone hat it can't do with 4G or HSUPA+? Not much. So not having a 5G is absolutely OK for the time being. IoT will be the biggest beneficiary of 5G when those things start to intercommunicate and create huge variables.
Blackberry key series are beautiful handsets to use, I have even tried Motion gorgeous looking handset, but I would really like BB to launch another Passport booted with Android I really do love that thing. Maybe also a new revamped Bold handset as well.
Imagine a Passport successor with latest Android, hopefully Android One, flaghsip-tier chipset, and 5G. I am definitely will wait to see that happen.
P.S I do realize the existence of Unihertz Titan, but that is more for the rugged and all-terrain situation.
TCL did not acquire BlackBerry. They have a licensing agreement.
I don't care about 5G at this point but I'd love a KEY3.
I hope this time around they put OIS into their camera. I really love blackberry, but the downside I couldnÂ’t buy because they were lacking some feature that most flagship phone have. I wish to see a successor of Priv. That phone was dope!
Blackberry is long dead, so who cares what they launch or not !
