Whereas the concept of a contemporary BlackBerry smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard died a long time ago, we’ve seen a number of manufacturers attempt to revive it with little luck. Nonetheless, one firm continues to be making BlackBerry-like gadgets with bodily keyboards, and it has a brand new telephone coming quickly.
For these unaware, the loss of life of the BlackBerry is one thing we’ve seen time and time again. A number of years in the past, TCL made a couple of glorious BlackBerry telephones just like the Keyone, Key2, and a Key2 LE, however that partnership led to 2020. Then, at one level, OnwardMobility was going to make a high-end 5G BlackBerry, however that mission by no means got here to fruition.
And whereas BlackBerry is useless now, the model Unihertz might take its place, and it’s on the brink of launch an impressive-looking new smartphone that might be the 5G BlackBerry you’ve all the time wished.
One thing is coming quickly…
Simply keep tuned!😜

Unihertz lately shared a publish to Twitter confirming its subsequent telephone is “coming quickly,” together with a teaser image and video. And whereas the tweet doesn’t share too many particulars, we did collect a little bit of intel. After growing the picture’s brightness, you’ll be able to clearly see a big, fashionable sweet bar-style smartphone with a bodily keyboard. That is the brand new Unihertz smartphone.
Contemplating it’s 2022, we are able to count on Unihertz’s subsequent telephone to have an even bigger show than its earlier BlackBerry-style telephones, extra energy, loads of battery life, a QWERTY keyboard, and probably even 5G. At this level, each flagship telephone launched recently has 5G, so it is sensible for Unihertz to do the identical. In that case, this would be the 5G BlackBerry OnwardMobility wished to make however couldn’t.
The one good “fashionable” QWERTY telephone is the Unihertz TITAN Pocket, however quickly it’ll get replaced by the smartphone proven above. Sadly, we’ve got no particulars relating to the specs, display screen measurement, if it’ll have 5G or perhaps a identify. That stated, there’s an excellent probability the corporate might name this the Unihertz TITAN Professional (or the Titan 5G), however we’ll have to attend and see.
