BlackBerry could launch a mid-range Android phone next year

BlackBerry CEO John Chen revealed the company’s plans in an interview.

BlackBerry could launch a mid-range Android phone next year

BlackBerry finally caved in and launched a smartphone running Android, the BlackBerry Priv, this year, and there were rumors that it is already working on a second Android phone codenamed Vienna. Now, company CEO John Chen has said in an interview with Bloomberg that it could launch another phone powered by Android in 2016.

Chen didn’t say when this device would launch, but says its existences depends on the success of the BlackBerry Priv, and that too if the Priv offers enough profit margins rather than being a success purely on the merit of sales numbers. It’s going to be tough for BlackBerry, since only Samsung has managed to make any meaningful profit with phones running Android. But with BlackBerry OS-powered devices failing to make an impact, the Canadian manufacturer is likely to continue using Google’s mobile operating system in the future as well.
