I heard the same, but that doesn't explain how there's been phone models with keypads both before and after BB.

Also, I doubt Chinese phone makers give a fuck about patents. There was a cheap qwerty phone with KaiOS sold only in India, and I suspect it wasn't sold anywhere else exactly to avoid worldwide patent problems. But honestly who cares, just make it and people will import it.
