BlackBerry announced during its recent gathering that it is planning to launch at least two new smartphones this year - one of which could be the second-generation model of the KEYOne, according to recent speculation. 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.

TCL Communications further broadened their portfolio with the introduction of the BlackBerry Motion.

BlackBerry's partnership with TCL Communication is paying off, with the Chinese manufacturer announcing at the 2018 Consumer Electronic Show that it "promises at least two new BlackBerry smartphones" in 2018. You can buy it straight through the Amazon and Best Buy and can use it with GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile. The company has licensed its brand to China-based TCL which now makes and sells these BlackBerry-branded Android-powered smartphones.

Internally, the KeyOne Bronze Edition is equipped with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and 3,505 mAh battery.

TCL's also bringing the previously launched BlackBerry Motion to United States shores and pricing it at $449.99.

Finally, the new BlackBerry smartphone features a convenience key, a new feature that provides a physical interface, which gives quick and easy access to four customizable profiles, for Home, Car, Office and User modes.
