2017, without any doubt, is going to be the tech world-shattering year with the expected launch of number of smartphones from renowned companies Nokia, BlackBerry etc. Wait! What Blackberry? Yes, you have heard it right.
I am talking about the BlackBerry KEYone that is going to be the final smartphone by the device codenamed ‘Mercury’ and is expected to hit the market shelves within a few months. The version is designed and manufactured by TCL Communications Technology, (TCT), which is now licensed to sell and manufacture BlackBerry branded phones. With the expiration of BlackBerry Priv, most of you might be thinking the same about the KEYone, but in my opinion, this new version of the BlackBerry feels and look much better.
Here’s what TCL has achieved this time.
