BlackBerry to make a comeback to South Korea with Priv

Years after it exited the market, BlackBerry is all set to make a comeback to South Korea. According to a new report, the Canadian company will launch its debut Android smartphone Priv in the Asian country at an event scheduled for September 20.

BlackBerry entered the South Korean smartphone market in 2009, but decided to pull out in 2012 due to sluggish sales. Several other companies, including Nokia, HTC, and Motorola, also exited the market in the same year after losing out to local players like Samsung and LG.

The company, however, made it clear that there are currently no plans to set up a regional office in South Korea.
