This week on Fast Charge, Dom Preston, Alex ‘Toddy’ Walker-Todd, Hannah Cowton and Lewis Painter give their thoughts on the revival of BlackBerry, the first phone with an under-display camera, and the flexible Nubia Watch.
BlackBerry is back, back again, after startup OnwardMobility purchased a license to the brand with plans to launch a new phone with a physical keyboard in 2021. The announcement comes just months after TCL called time on a similar deal it had used to launch a few BlackBerry phones, though the last one to actually hit the market was the Key2 LE back in 2018.
If that’s a blast from the past, ZTE is bringing us into the future with the announcement of an upcoming launch for the Axon 20: the first phone to come out with a fully hidden under-display camera, so you get a genuine full-screen display.
Finally, Lewis has been reviewing the Nubia Watch, a flexible OLED smartwatch that just launched on Kickstart. The follow-up to the iffy Nubia Alpha protoype, the new watch has a refined design and a couple new features, but has it improved enough to earn your cash?
