TCL to stop selling BlackBerry-branded phones in August

The BlackBerry Key2.

BlackBerry-branded phones may not exist after August 2020 when the partnership between BlackBerry and TCL Communication ends. 

In a tweet, BlackBerry shared that it will no longer be selling BlackBerry-branded mobile devices from 31 August. While it will no longer have rights to design, manufacture or sell them, TCL will continue to provide support for the existing mobile devices including customer service and warranty service until 31 August, 2022. 

BlackBerry and TCL signed a long-term global licensing agreement in December 2016. The past four years saw the launch of several BlackBerry devices such as the Keyone, Key2 and Key2 LE.
