BlackBerry is known for its qwerty smartphones since the dawn of time. But, because of huge competition from Google and Apple. BlackBerry didn’t manage to erase their dept. So, they were forced to jump over to Android. TCL however. The company that got the BlackBerry license. Is one of the dept relief companies. With this agreement they help both BlackBerry and TCL itself to become a Chinese Mobile company that thinks security to be their first priority.
TCL doesn’t want to be another Huawei
Huawei as we know is banned from Australia. Because they aren’t trusted. China is known for having companies and technology that gives the Chinese government extra info about the users. Huawei wants to build their 5G net in Australia, but they cant because of Australia thinking its a security risk for its country.
We have been informed by the Govt that Huawei & ZTE have been banned from providing 5G technology to Australia. This is a extremely disappointing result for consumers. Huawei is a world leader in 5G. Has safely & securely delivered wireless technology in Aust for close to 15 yrs

Huawei on their hand thinks they are disappointed. Well. This was to expected. What is right or wrong. We don’t know. But what we do know is that Norway seems to discuss this issue, but haven’t taken any action against Huawei at all.
TCL on the other hand is another Chinese company. But they do need to follow the strict security standards that BlackBerry got or they will loose the license. And thats something that TCL can’t afford. With the security software that comes with every BlackBerry phone. Also those with Android. It is wise of TCL to offer same security standard in Android as BlackBerry OS 10 etc got.
BlackBerry KEY2 and BlackBerry KEY2 LE takes TCL to new Heights
In 2017, BlackBerry keyOne was released. This year its BlackBerry KEY2 and BlackBerry KEY2 LE that will take TCL further with their Android Qwerty smartphones. They need to stay on the correct side. Debt relief companies have difficulties and we hope TCL will help BlackBerry and itself to survive.
So do BlackBerry software update without any issues when buying a new Android smartphone with qwerty keyboard from TCL. If their product do harm your privacy. Then you should take action, because BlackBerry always been about security since the start.
