Just like Nokia, the Blackberry seems to be making a comeback. Just like Nokia (Who are now under HMD) BlackBerry is under TCL and they are making phones as quickly as possible.

According to TCL, the company could be coming out with as many as 3 phones this year.

According to reports, the company is working on an all-touchscreen version, a spiritual successor to the DTEK 50 and DTEK 60 phones, which TCL also built for BlackBerry, according to a source familiar with the rollout plans. TCL will likely get rid of the DTEK branding.

From the looks of things it seems TCL is actually quite serious with Blackberry and truly want to bring them back to their former glory. 

Their first try for the new year, the KeyOne, was revealed at a press conference on Saturday ahead of Mobile World Congress trade show. 

It's a new world for TCL, best known for making budget televisions, as well as phones through its Alcatel line.

It is hoped that TCL will be able to do something amazing with Blackberry this year, but that remains to be seen, so all we can do is wait with bated breath.

If you are an adult now then you definitely remember the Nokia 3310 aka the greatest phone ever! It could well be on the way back sometime soon.

You'll remember that what made the Nokia 3310 such a classic was its durability. It lasted for ages, was virtually indestructible and could just about take whatever was thrown at it. 

So a modern revamp of the phone is only naturally going to get people excited and boy are they excited. The phone is said to be going for around €59 (around N20,000). 

What the specs of the revamped 3310 will be is still unknown for now, but there have been whispers that we'll know more at the 
 Mobile World Congress on February 26. If that's the case then we'll just have to wait and see. So fingers crossed.

There have been rumblings, links, reports, rumors and all sorts surrounding the Blackberry Mercury, but it seems that will all soon be at an end.

It has been announced that we will be getting the full lowdown of the upcoming BlackBerry Mercury at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this year.


Many have been curious to see what Blackberry would whip up with their latest play on the smartphone market and many would hope they can bring something good to the tabel.

The company took Twitter to announce the launch event, which is set to take place on February 25 at 7:00 p.m. local time. 

The Mercury will be the first foray by TCL after the company took over the struggling Blackberry and will now make mobile phones with the Blackberry name. 

Not much is known about the system, but the little we do know is that it'll come with Android 7.0 Nougat and a USB Type-C port. We also know that it has a rather hefty rubber and metal body. 

That's about it unfortunately. Blackberry keeping their cards to their chest is intriguing though and it is hoped that it doesn't turn out to be just for nothing.
I guess two weeks isn't too long to wait, we'll wait and see.

Sony is expected to release as many as five smartphones at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017. 

Apart from the recently leaked Xperia XA2 smartphone, the Japanese company is speculated to announce Xperia XZ (2017) at the forthcoming unveil event.

While all we have are grainy images, at least we have images we can look at. Earlier today, a couple of smartphones have surfaced photos. 

One of the photos contains four smartphones from Sony. Rumors suggest that one of the smartphones is the Sony Xperia XZ (2017) and alongside it is the current Xperia XZ smartphone that was released in September 2016, according to GSM Arena.

Online reports have also dubbed the Sony Xperia XZ (2017) as Xperia XZ2. The image also contains the Sony Xperia Z Ultra that features a 6.4-inch display. If sizes are anything to go by, it can be asserted that the Sony Xperia XZ2 will be bigger than its predecessor that features a 5.2-inch display. Other leaked shots suggest that Xperia XZ2 would be coming with 4 GB of RAM. Last year's Xperia XZ houses 3 GB of RAM.

If indeed there are going to be 5 phones announced then it'll be interesting to see what Sony have in store for us in 2017.
