A new report has appeared online which states that Blackberry is currently working on a new smartphone. A smartphone with the name Blackberry Adula was seen on the company’s DTEK security application. The smartphone is listed on CrackBerry with the model number BBI100 and the codename ‘Adula’. Other than this, no other information about this smartphone has been revealed as of now.
For the last few years, brands like Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi and Huawei have been ruling in the smartphone market. However, Blackberry still has a set user base that enjoys the keypad design over touchscreen displays which are currently the top trending mobile phones.
Currently, companies like TCL, BB Merah Putih and Optiemus hold the license for designing Blackberry smartphones. So, any one of these companies could be working on the upcoming Blackberry Adula smartphone. Furthermore, according to sources, seeing that Optiemus had launched the Evolve & Evolve X mobile phones in India, it could be the company working on the Adula smartphones as well.
The reason to believe that Optiemus is working on this smartphone is because Adula is a small town in India. If these rumours stand true, then Blackberry Adula will be the next device by the company after the launch of the Blackberry Key2 LE.
Additionally, reports also have been speculating that the Blackberry Adula could be a new super secure Android Pie smartphone. This means that Blackberry Adula could be one of the Android mobile phones to run on the latest Android operating system.
With the Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC) just a month away, we might get clarity on the credibility of the rumours revolving this upcoming mobile phone. A lot of smartphone companies participate in the MWC event to showcase their new products. And, if Blackberry is actually working on a new smartphone, we can expect to get a glimpse of it during the event.
