Sameer Bhatia, Director, Distribution at BlackBerry India, said, "QWERTY has been one of our strong suits, keeping with the consumer trend and demand, we will continue to launch devices based on QWERTY. There remains a large portion of the user base that are loyal to the QWERTY experience."

BlackBerry Passport will sport a 4.5-inch square full HD screen with a touch-enabled keyboard.

"You will be able to navigate web pages, apps and e-mails by lightly brushing your fingers over the keys, which helps with things like scrolling and cursor placement," he said, adding that the keyboard will also support custom commands.

The BlackBerry Classic, meanwhile, will bring back the trackpad and function keys to BlackBerry 10 devices.

"We believe that our devices need to stay in step with the times while ensuring to provide die-hard BlackBerry users with the comfort of a keypad as well," said Bhatia.

However, BlackBerry is planning to approach both online and traditional retail platform in the market to approach the customers.

"We believe that both traditional retail format outlets and online platforms are complementary strategies that brands need to harness to ensure complete consumer access and reach," he said.
