BlackBerry to launch a midrange Android handset in 2016: Report

BlackBerry Priv

With the #BlackBerryPriv currently selling pretty decently in the world markets, a new report suggests as to how the company could be looking to launch its second #Android device sometime next year. The word comes directly from the CEO of #BlackBerry John Chen, although he didn’t give out a confirmation as to when this device will break cover in the markets.

He mentioned that the success of the Priv would be a big factor in the release of this new midrange offering, so don’t get your hopes up just yet. Chen also mentioned that the company is focusing more on the profit margins of its smartphones rather than sheer volume of units sold, which is an understandable approach given the company’s financial situation since the past few years.

It will be interesting to see whether this midrange Android powered BlackBerry will ever see the light of the day, but we’re hoping to get more information on that over the coming days.
