New BlackBerry Smartphones In The Works, Codenamed Juno And Krypton
On Tuesday, two new BlackBerry smartphones are reportedly in the works and the codenames are said to be “Juno” and “Krypton.” No further details have been leaked by the source, though it’s possible that the upcoming devices will be manufactured by TCL Communication, a China-based original design manufacturer (ODM).
For the record, TCL recently acquired a license in order to produce and sell BlackBerry-branded mobile devices. According to Android Headlines, the Blackberry Limited isn’t solely licensing its brand name to the Chinese company TCL. This makes sense since the leaked codenames of the upcoming devices, which are said to be Juno and Krypton, are similar to TCL’s recent naming systems.
To recall, the BlackBerry KEYone was previously reported to have a codename as “Mercury” within the tech firm’s ranks. On the other hand, an Indonesian tech company recently launched the BlackBerry Aurora smartphone, so the sole fact that the upcoming devices are with codenames Juno and Krypton, which are after celestial bodies, doesn’t necessarily prove that they’re being handled by TCL alone.
According to Evan Blass, one of the most productive leakers in the tech industry, two new BlackBerry devices are in the works. Blass also mentioned in his tweet that the codenames of the anticipated BlackBerry smartphones are Juno and Krypton. However, there are no further details provided by Blass, but he's usually correct on his guesses. There is a possibility that the two mobile devices are indeed being worked on by the Canadian-based multinational company.
Until now, there is no solid information about the specs and features of the two BlackBerry smartphones. However, Phone Arena reported that TCL might surprise its fans on the upcoming news. Besides, TCL Communication has all the right to that tricks since it is the company that holds the global rights to all BlackBerry products. Smart critics and enthusiasts assure that Juno and Krypton will have Google's Android operating system.
