Mobile phone manufacturer BlackBerry has been struggling to make a success of its recent handsets, with shares dwindling. However, new reports suggest that the company has far from given up.
According to Pocket-lint, the Canadian manufacturer is preparing to release a 64-bit octa-core processor smartphone, which will be released in September 2014.
Having recently acquired a new boss, the company could be starting a new strategy of attack to regain its comfortable market share. A 64-bit handset would put it in direct competition with Apple's iPhone 5S and, potentially, with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5.
Over recent months, BlackBerry has seen the number of people running its latest operating system fall, with shares dropping by 3.3 per cent.
It's unknown whether or not BlackBerry will bring new smartphones and software to the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, which kicks off on February 24th.
