Priv owners will obviously be disappointed with this news, but it's not surprising; it likely doesn't have the install base needed to really incentivize such a huge engineering effort, and BlackBerry has since moved on from its hardware ambitions.

Alex Thurber commented as to how getting updates for these devices was a complicated process including partnerships with Carriers and chipset makers. He also highlighted that even the provision of security updates required complex and intricate cooperation between Blackberry and their partners. Coming with a secured OS with DTEK security, the BlackBerry Priv was updated from Android 5.0 Lollipop to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The update also includes some new features exclusively available for Samsung devices like Samsung Pass, Dual messenger, and AOD. It is also to be noted that the future build TCL devices, including the current BlackBerry KeyOne, will all be eligible for Android 8.0 Oreo update. Nevertheless, the BlackBerry General Manager did mention that BlackBerry was still committed to providing security updates for the device as well as for other DTEK smartphones.
