After having success with the BlackBerry Motion and Keyone in 2017, BlackBerry will release at least 2 new Android smartphones in 2018.
At this point we can only guess on what BlackBerry has in store for 2018 but we could at least expect successors to the Motion and Keyone and perhaps even an entry level phone.
The BlackBerry Motion will finally go on sale in the US, starting January 12. It will retail for $449.99 and will be available online at Amazon and BestBuy.com. The Motion launched in Q4 of last year but initially skipped the US market.
In addition, BlackBerry will start selling a new Bronze Edition Keyone later on in this quarter. It will be available in select markets across Asia, Europe and the Middle East and will come with dual-SIM support for some of those markets.
And finally, BlackBerry confirmed it is working on an Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Keyone and the Motion, but didn’t provide a timeframe for its release.
