BlackBerry is dead, but this phone could take its place – Review Geek

New BlackBerry style phone from Unihertz

While the idea of ​​a modern BlackBerry smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard is long dead, we’ve seen several brands try to revive it with little luck. However, one company is still making BlackBerry-like devices with physical keyboards, and a new phone is coming soon.

For those unaware, the death of the BlackBerry is something we’ve seen time and time again. Several years ago TCL made some great BlackBerry phones like the Keyone, Key2, and a Key2 LE, but that partnership ended in 2020. Then, at some point, OnwardMobility was going to make a high-end BlackBerry 5G, but this project never came to fruition.

And while BlackBerry is dead now, the Unihertz brand could take its place, and it’s about to release an impressive new smartphone that could be the 5G BlackBerry you’ve always dreamed of.

Unihertz recently shared a message on Twitter confirming that its next phone is “coming soon”, along with a teaser image and video. And while the tweet didn’t share too many details, we did gather a bit of information. After increasing the brightness of the image, you can clearly see a large modern candy bar style smartphone with a physical keyboard. Here is the new Unihertz smartphone.

Given that it’s 2022, we can expect Unihertz’s next phone to have a bigger screen than its previous BlackBerry-style phones, more power, great battery life, a QWERTY keyboard, and potentially even 5G. At this point, every flagship phone released recently has 5G, so it makes sense for Unihertz to do the same. If so, it will be the 5G that BlackBerry OnwardMobility wanted to do but couldn’t.

The only good “modern” QWERTY phone is the Unihertz TITAN Pocket, but it will soon be replaced by the smartphone shown above. Unfortunately, we don’t have any details regarding specs, screen size, whether it will have 5G or even a name. That said, chances are the company could call it the Unihertz TITAN Pro (or the Titan 5G), but we’ll have to wait and see.

Would you buy a modern smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard running Android 12?
