# IFA2017: BlackBerry would prepare a smartphone that is strong and secure … but without a keyboard

The IFA officially begins Friday, but manufacturers are already providing information on the products they will be presenting. This is the case of Chinese TCL, which holds the BlackBerry license.

BlackBerry operates visibly discreet, but noticeable. After the very nice KeyOne, fans of my brand should soon discover a new model.
The Chinese firm TCL, which holds the BlackBerry license in a very large majority of countries, has just announced that a smartphone without physical keyboard would be presented at the IFA in Berlin.

First and foremost for professionals, the latter could fulfill the expectations of the frequent travelers. It will be the first device of the brand to be endowed with an IP67 certification, which makes it resistant to water and dust. Its autonomy announced should be more than 26 hours in mixed use, which means that it will have a very good autonomy. This was already the case of the Keyone that we tested.

It will also embed the BlackBerry Secure interface, which reinforces some of the security features of Android. A detail that may be important for a company or individual concerned about the issue. We should know more quickly.



Ivy is loves technology and has been addicted to it since childhood. Apart from tech, she loves watching sci-fi / historical documentaries and traveling to new places.
