When John Chen became BlackBerry’s CEO, he allegedly canceled two planned BlackBerry series. The K and C series were meant to be entry level series BlackBerry 10 smartphones. In place of these devices, BlackBerry unveiled the BlackBerry Z3.

We’ve previously seen the BlackBerry K-series “Kopi” show its face before. Details are slim, but K-series BlackBerry smartphone was going to sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 and was meant to release in Q1 2014.

Interestingly, the device is still making its rounds to BlackBerry partners, for reasons unknown. Though, a new entry level qwerty BlackBerry device, the Q20, is expected to be released by the end of 2014.

The BlackBerry Kopi resembles a BlackBerry Z30 and Q5 offspring. Would you have preferred BlackBerry still push this device to release?
