BlackBerry reportedly developing three new Android smartphones

Since releasing the BlackBerry PRIV Android smartphone in 2015, BlackBerry’s fortunes have not taken a dramatic turn for the better. But the company remains committed to the smartphone market, despite rumours that they could focus solely on enterprise services in the future.

BlackBerry reportedly has three new Android smartphones in the pipeline, which have been code named Neon, Argon and Mercury.

According to VentureBeat, in each of the next three quarters, BlackBerry will release one Android smartphone.

For some time now, there has been reports that BlackBerry is planning to release two mid-range Android smartphones in 2016. This latest information does not contradict that, as the release schedule outlined by VentureBeat would see one device going on sale in 2017.

Last month Android Wafer reported on the story that TCL Corporation may have been working on a smartphone for BlackBerry.
