BlackBerry announced recently that I missed the closing to its hardware division, but as we said, This decision does not imply that we are not going to see more equipment brand, the difference will be that they will not be manufactured by the company, but that they shall be borne by other companies.
They already did with the BlackBerry DTEK50, manufactured by TCL, and everything indicates that they will follow the same steps with the rumored BlackBerry DTEK60, whose characteristics have already leaked more than once.
