Blackberry made a significant mark in the market following the release of the Android-based smartphones away from its OS10 which only partly supports Android applications. However, the company was in time past slow with the release of the Android 6 Marshmallow OS into the market for its consumers. The slow update rollout is, however, excusable for the smartphone company as it is relatively new in the game. However, 2017 looks to hold a better promise the smartphone company has been rumored to be working on the release of the Android N OS update to its smartphones before the end of the second quarter in the year.
The Blackberry PRIV model, however, will be a perfect fit for the Android 7 OS update although there is no set a date for the roll out of the OS, however, Blackberry could pull a fast one and start the release of the OS update to its Android smartphones.
The tech market is however focused more on the newly released BlackBerry DTEK60 which so far is the most secured Android smartphone in the world; more reason tech enthusiast is eager to see the OS update on the smartphone. The smartphone packs a range of impressive specs including the fingerprint sensor and runs better on the Android build compared to its predecessor.
