Nokia and BlackBerry Are Back! New Smartphones Introduced At CES 2017

Last week, when numerous people moved down on Las Vegas for CES 2017, many should’ve felt that they had seen two apparitions. Well, Nokia and BlackBerry smartphones seriously appeared like ghosts among all bright new devices and gadgets. So, it was seen by the people that two established names of the smartphone industry again came back to compete the modern Android devices. You already know that Nokia was the biggest mobile brand with its superb calling and messaging features and battery quality. On the other hand, BlackBerry was in the list of secure mobile brands with the iconic QWERTY keyboard.

Well, these two popular brands have been associated with licensed phone makers which are presently trying to maximise the brands’ familiarity for their new devices. The all new Nokia 6 is the first smartphone from HMD Global which is a Finnish firm that was particularly put together for making Nokia mobile devices so that Nokia can compete against its rivals such as Samsung and Apple.nokia-6Hopefully, HMD has put very much effort in manufacturing unibody for the smartphone and the specification sheet displays a really challenging Android device that features a 5.5-inch full HD screen covered by Gorilla glass, 4GB of RAM, and Snapdragon 830 processor. Yet the company’s capacity of delivering on its hype is as yet completely untested, and while it has made the decision of launching just in China because, in accordance with them, this is methodically crucial, it could only as easily be read as a reluctance of launching into the more insightful markets of the West.

The more amazing phone at CES 2017 is the BlackBerry Mercury. China’s TCL gained the right of making phones and calling them BlackBerry in 2016. Well-known in Australia for its budget TV’s and its phone-making assistant Alcatel, it’s also the organisation which quietly made the final phones for the real BlackBerry firm, the DTEK50 and DTEK60 which were repackaged as Idols of Alcatel. The Mercury is simply a prototype BlackBerry TCL and actually doubles down by looking somewhat like the previous device which made its name. Featuring a leather-like back and a physical keyboard, the designers have worked hard to ensure you know this looks like a BlackBerry. This is the first TCL-made mobile which was made for being the BlackBerry from the starting, and in that sense, it might be an amazing comeback for the brand.
