Early in the morning on Monday, February 3, it was validated that BlackBerry mobile phones disappear, Android Central reports
” We do be sorry for to share that as of August 31, 2020, TCL Communication will no longer be selling BlackBerry-branded mobile devices. TCL Communication has no further rights to style, manufacture or sell any brand-new BlackBerry mobile devices,” the Blackberry Mobile Twitter account broke the news.
Back in December 2016, TCL announced that it had protected the rights to create and offer BlackBerry-branded mobile phones. This was seen as an interesting revival of the long-beloved brand name, and it led to the release of phones like the BlackBerry KEYone, Motion, KEY2, and KEY2 LE. The KEY phones were especially fascinating, as they revived the renowned BlackBerry style with a physical QWERTY keyboard in a world filled with flat pieces of glass that are essentially identical from each other.
Regrettably, the fond memories of designs from days past doesn’t appear to have been enough to keep the BlackBerry ship sailing.
Regrettably, the nostalgia of styles from days past doesn’t appear to have actually been enough to keep the BlackBerry ship cruising.
As for what this implies for those existing phones, BlackBerry says:
TCL Communication will continue to supply support for the existing portfolio of mobile devices including customer service and service warranty service up until August 31, 2022– or for as long as required by local laws where the mobile phone was bought.
There’s no mention in the declaration about what this implies for future software updates.
