Now you will see a full touchscreen blackberry smartphone. A Chinese electronics company TCL will launch a phone under the BlackBerry name in October – a month after Apple launches its new flagship iPhone 8 and a refresh of iPhone 7 devices.According to a report in Engadget, TCL’s Francois Mahieu said the new phone would respect BlackBerry’s reputation for building “hard-wearing devices for clumsy international travelers who will be working in all kinds of weather.”

According to a report in Engadget, TCL’s Francois Mahieu said the new phone would respect BlackBerry’s reputation for building “hard-wearing devices for clumsy international travelers who will be working in all kinds of weather.”

“The main feature, beyond the full-touchscreen, is the (planned) IP67 water and dust-proofing, as well as a battery rated to last for more than 26 hours of mixed use,” Mahieu was quoted as saying.

The company will be focusing on durability and longevity as it would keep both of these aspects as biggest selling points.

Mahieu claimed that a number of iPhone and Galaxy users would “make the switch” to BlackBerry come October. He said that BlackBerry’s security know-how will enable TCL to deliver the “most secure Android phone in the world”.

“We are there to play. We are just playing with different cards, mostly by pushing its strengths of battery life, security, and durability,” he said.
