TCL Communication has revealed plans to release at least two new BlackBerry smartphones this year, with one addition confirmed.

During this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the company announced that it will release a colour variant and dual SIM version of the BlackBerry KEYone - Bronze Edition - in markets across Asia, Europe, and the Middle East in the first quarter of the year.

TCL Communication notes that the BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition is ideal for corporate users or frequent travellers. It includes 4GB of memory and 64GB of internal storage, as well as security, productivity and reliability features.

"BlackBerry phones are the world's most secure Android smartphones because we've designed security into every possible piece of software," said Alex Thurber, SVP and GM of Mobility Solutions, BlackBerry.

"We are excited that TCL Communication has decided to bring the BlackBerry Motion with its outstanding battery life and its touchscreen interface to the United States, in addition to introducing a dual-SIM variant of the highly regarded BlackBerry KEYone for global markets. In 2018 we will be working closely with TCL Communication to roll out Android 8.0 Oreo, including additional security and other features, to continue to expand the overall BlackBerry smartphone user experience," he added.
