First announced back in August, the BlackBerry 5G has been one of the most anticipated phones of 2019 – and it’s still not out yet! Here’s why the anticipated neo-Blackberry phone will never release…
A brief history of Blackberry
Blackberry was founded in 1984 as a wireless communications company. In 1999, they released the first BlackBerry device, and by 2007, BlackBerry devices were being used by over 20 million people worldwide. However, in recent years, BlackBerry has struggled to keep up with competitors like Apple and Android. In 2013, they released the BlackBerry 10 operating system in an attempt to recapture some of their lost market share, but it was unsuccessful. Now, BlackBerry is working on a new phone that runs on Android and is set to release in 2019.
However, due to various delays, it is unlikely that this phone will ever see the light of day. First, Blackberry hired telecom executives from China to head its operations in order to expand into China’s smartphone market. These executives spent so much time building connections within China that they neglected the project altogether; second, there are disputes between BlackBerry and TCL Communication Technology Holdings Limited, who had been manufacturing phones for them since 2016. Finally, due to a shortage of funds and decreased revenue from sales of other products such as security software or servers, it appears that the only thing BlackBerry has left is this phone.
What is a Blackberry?
A BlackBerry is a brand of a smartphone developed by the Canadian company BlackBerry Limited. The first BlackBerry device was released in 1999 as a two-way pager. The most recent BlackBerry models are the Z10 and Q10, which were released in 2013. The company has been struggling in recent years, and its phones have been eclipsed by rivals such as Apple’s iPhone and devices running Google’s Android operating system. In September 2013, BlackBerry announced that it would no longer produce its own smartphones, instead licensing its brand to other manufacturers. But now, rumours about a new Blackberry phone – called the neo or 5G – are circulating among tech blogs. What could be so special about this one?
The long awaited Blackberry phone release date for the neo should be some time before 2019 at the latest due to international agreements with standards bodies that prevents early access being given on handsets not yet compliant with their next-generation wireless technology standards.
As well as this agreement, US laws prevent AT&T from selling mobile phones outside of North America until after they’ve been certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The FCC won’t certify any handset not compliant with next generation wireless technology standards because they don’t want US users buying outdated products without realising it! So what does all this mean? We can expect that this new phone will have LTE Advanced 4X4 MIMO antennas, high bandwidth duplex connections, low latency and lower power consumption – making it one of the best available on the market. And while we’re still waiting for an official announcement, many signs point to an announcement date of late 2017 with a retail launch expected sometime in 2018.
The origin of upcoming BB5g
In early 2019, BlackBerry announced that it was working on a new phone that would be released in 2020. The phone, codenamed Neo, was supposed to be a return to form for the company. It would have a physical keyboard, a small form factor, and run on a brand new operating system. However, in September 2019, BlackBerry announced that it was cancelling the project. The reason? The company couldn’t find a way to make the phone profitable. They were only able to sell an average of 3 million phones per year – which is barely enough to cover their costs. Plus, they’ve been unable to compete with the larger smartphone manufacturers who are currently dominating the market (i.e., Apple and Samsung).
On top of all this, their manufacturing partners refused to do any more work for them unless they agreed to buy millions of phones from them each year. With its manufacturing partner refusing support and its lack of profitability making future prospects dim, there’s no chance that BlackBerry will release this anticipated phone.
Possible feature(s) of BB5g
The BlackBerry 5g was supposed to be a game-changer for the company. It was supposed to be their answer to the iPhone and Android. But it looks like we’ll never see it. Here’s why . BlackBerry isn’t able to compete with Apple or Google because they lack in hardware manufacturing. They’ve been relying on partners like TCL Communications, which have had trouble getting the phone out due to manufacturing delays. If they can’t get things together soon, there will be no BB5g at all, and the company is in dire straits.
It needs to make something happen, but it doesn’t seem possible right now. I don’t know what they’re going to do, but this doesn’t look good for them. There are a lot of rumors about how Blackberry might be done for. I think that’s ridiculous; they need to find some way to reinvent themselves, and if not then maybe it just wasn’t meant to be. The smartphone industry has changed so much since the days when Blackberry ruled supreme. In order to get back on top, BlackBerry would need to reinvent itself. Maybe it’s time for them to move away from hardware manufacturing altogether and focus more on software.
All these years later, it seems that RIM – as we knew it – may finally be dead after all… but what could the future hold? What should the future hold? Nobody knows. Right now, they need to figure out how to survive before even thinking about the future. Maybe next year, or even ten years from now, people will say remember when Blackberry was relevant? That day hasn’t come yet though. And it looks like it never will… Unless they can make a comeback, who knows what will happen. I really hope they keep fighting!
The possible scenario for releasing BB5g
BlackBerry may be planning to release a new phone soon, but it’s unlikely that it will be the long-awaited BB5g. The phone is rumored to be in development, but there are several reasons why it may never see the light of day. First, BlackBerry has been struggling financially for years and has recently sold off most of its assets. Second, the company has been losing market share to competitors like Apple and Android for years.
Third, BlackBerry has been slow to adopt new technologies like 5G. fourth, the company has a small team of engineers working on the BB5g project, and they may not be able to finish it in time. fifth, BlackBerry may not be able to find a partner to help with the manufacturing and distribution of the BB5g. Sixth, BlackBerry doesn’t have much clout left in the industry. Seventh, at this point, there aren’t many people left who care about BB5g or even know what it is!
It’s possible that BlackBerry might release a new phone soon but don’t count on it being the long-awaited BB5g.
