In a recent interview with Bloomberg, BlackBerry CEO John Chen hinted that the company might come up with a second Android powered smartphone in 2016.
“Depends on the Priv. If the Priv is well received in the market and looks like it is. There’s a good chance […], we will still focus on the high-end probably closer to mid-range coming out in 2016,” he said. Moreover he also said that the focus would be more towards the high-end, but there’s no words about the device to be a mid-ranger.
However, he didn’t reveal any specific information about the launch time of the handset, but he did mentioned that it will depend on the performance of the Priv in coming months.
