    • BlackBerry’s last phone to feature qwerty keyboard.
    • The phone will be launched next year.
    • The phone will likely run on Android Nougat 7.0

Blackberry has recently announced that its last smartphone will sport its trademark physical keyboard.  Although BlackBerry has decided to quit in making their own hardware, the company is planning to insert the last smartphone with its popular qwerty keyboard feature. The Canadian-based mobile hardware company has tipped some information to a source suggesting the launch of its last smartphone likely to happen in the next year. 

John Chen, the Canadian Company’s CEO in an interview with Bloomberg TV said that Blackberry will live it up to its promise of releasing a last “dance” device, as being made by the company earlier this year. He said, “We have one keyboard phone I promised people. Its coming”.

However, Chen did not cited anything on the phone’s features or the date as on when it will be released.

Despite any information, the tipsters are presuming that this new smartphone might have a taste of Android and will run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. It might feature an octa-core Qualcomm processor paired with 3GB RAM, a 4.5-inch display, and a battery backup of 3,200 mAh.

Rumors also claim that the new device might likely fall under the mid-range smartphone category.

As Blackberry’s overall share has waned in the smartphone market over time, the company made it firm that it will shift from smartphones to software and would completely quit producing and distributing its own phones. Rather it will provide license to outside companies so that they are able to build their phones with the Blackberry brand.
