BlackBerry has announced that they are discontinuing their BlackBerry Classic smartphone, the company will instead be focusing on other devices.
The company is expected to release a number of new Android devices later this year and we recently heard about three new models in the works.
To keep innovating and advancing our portfolio, we are updating our smartphone lineup with state of the art devices. As part of this, and after many successful years in the market, we will no longer manufacture BlackBerry Classic. For many years, Classic (and its BBOS predecessors) has been in our portfolio. It has been an incredible workhorse device for customers, exceeding all expectations. But, the Classic has long surpassed the average lifespan for a smartphone in today’s market. We are ready for this change so we can give our customers something better – entrenched in our legacy in security and pedigree in making the most productive smartphones.
BlackBerry has said that it will continue to provide software updates for BlackBerry 10 devices and they will be releasing BlackBerry 10.3.3 next month.
