Two new Blackberry phones scheduled for release in 2018 have been unveiled and the devices will feature keyboards.

The announcement comes about a year after TLC revealed it would take over the manufacturing and the sales of phones at Blackberry, committing to expanding the brand's portfolio, CNET said.

Although representatives are tight lipped on specs for the two new smartphones, Engadget noted that both will pack physical keyboards.

"We're very confident in our ability to grow the keyboard market," said Gareth Hurn, BlackBerry Mobile's global head of device portfolio.

Francois Mahieu, deputy president and general manager of global sales and regional marketing for TCL's BlackBerry business, added that the corporation wanted to build a keyboard category, CNET reported.

Blackberry announced that one of the upcoming phones would succeed its already existing smartphone range while the second would serve to get fans excited for the year ahead, Trusted Reviews said.

The first device builds on the KEYOne that was released in October, but will feature a new color and dual-SIM support in select markets.

The KeyOne Bronze Edition is said to come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, Tech Radar reported.

Meanwhile, the all-touchscreen BlackBerry Motion is expected to hit the U.S. on Jan. 12 and will feature improved battery life and productivity aspects, CNET said.

Blackberry has been predominantly overshadowed by iPhone and Samsung however, Alain Lejeune, Global General Manager for BlackBerry Mobile noted that there has been renewed interest in the corporation since it introduced a new range of smartphones last year.

"With new BlackBerry smartphones from TCL Communication now available in over 50 countries around the world, we have a solid foundation to continue building upon our portfolio in the new year," Lejeune said, per CNET. "This means customers can expect to see at least two new BlackBerry smartphones from us later this year."
