5G is the next big thing in mobile, and device manufacturers worldwide are already in a rush to add such capabilities to these new models.
TCL, the parent company of BlackBerry Mobile, on the other hand, doesn’t see 5G as such a substantial technology innovation, revealing recently that it has no plans to launch a BlackBerry phone with support for 5G speeds.
The reason is as simple as it could be, TCL’s general manager of marketing, Stefan Streit, says. BlackBerry phones are already very fast and 5G is more appropriate for other devices, such as refrigerators.
“I don’t see the point of 5G on a BlackBerry,” he was quoted as saying by Pocket-lint. “It’s not an entertainment device and you can already get your email really fast. We can have a lot of fun with 5G and where to apply it – maybe in an 8K TV or a fridge.”
