Details of the program are unknown at the moment.

However, the company did mention that it will continue to fulfill any warranty obligations for the Priv and if there are any critical vulnerabilities it will work with the partners to offer patches.

"We want to reward your loyalty by committing to providing you with at least two full years of additional support for BB10 and at least two full years of BlackBerry network access for BBOS devices". This program will allow them to upgrade their devices to a BlackBerry KeyOne or Motion by availing users discounts and incentives.

While we are pleased to announce continuing support for BB10 and BBOS users for at least another two years, current device owners should be aware that we will be closing some ancillary services such as the BlackBerry World app store (12/31/2019), the BlackBerry Travel site (February 2018), and the Playbook video calling service (March 2018).

But the former two-time world girls champion posed a fightback to make it 7-8, reducing Sindhu's lead to only one point. However, in the last game, she lagged behind with only two points and the title went to second world-seeded Yamaguchi.

It should be noted that the formerly-known Research In Motion did not even update the Priv to Nougat, as we saw confirmed back in September.

BlackBerry's first Android phone, the Priv, will no longer be receiving any security updates, according to the Canadian mobile maker. While the firm did announce that the PRIV would not be getting updated to Android 8.0 Oreo, it has now stated that it will no longer be supporting the handset with monthly security updates.

The phone has a 5.4-inch dual-curved WQHD Plastic AMOLED display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 featuring a hexa-core, 64-bit processor and Adreno 418 GPU clocked at 600 MHz. At that time, the company promised that it would update the phone for two years, though it was pretty confident in its ability to lockdown insecure parts of the operating system. It packs in a 3,410 mAh battery, which was claimed to give up to 22.5 hours of battery life.
