BlackBerry KEYone QWERTY Android Smartphone Will Go on Sale on May 31


The phone also comes with a personalized learning engine that "gets to know the way you type with on screen flick typing", BlackBerry said.

Meanwhile, in Canada, the KEYone will be available from SaskTel, Telus, Rogers, and Bell, and will cost $199 CAD on a two-year contract. Details are scarce, with TCL only announcing unlocked GSM and CDMA variants will be available at that time, with availability directly from carriers, including Sprint, planned for "later this summer". What is extremely unique is the fact that the fingerprint reader is integrated into the keyboard's space button.

Just like the Passport, the KeyOne has a physical keyboard with touch-sensitive tricks; however, unlike the Passport, it's manageable, pocketable and actually rather nice to look at.

"Anyone who is an Android loyalist and values the mobile security and productivity that BlackBerry software brings will love this smartphone", BlackBerry's general manager of mobility solutions Alex Thurber said in a statement released today.

Blending classic BlackBerry design with new influences, the KEYOne retains BlackBerry's iconic physical QWERTY keyboard, which has been given a major intelligence upgrade, with a stunning touchscreen display and metal body.

BlackBerry KEYone has been a device which has caught the attention of a large number of users over the past few months.


We're nearing the arrival of the BlackBerry KeyOne in North America.

PixabayWhen is the BlackBerry KEYone coming to Canada and the U.S.?

BlackBerry has pulled out of the hardware business, but thanks to its partnership with Chinese company TCL, it announced an interesting handset at MWC (Mobile World Congress) this year.

As for software, the BlackBerry KeyOne has Android 7.1 Nougat onboard, as you'd expect of a smartphone launched in 2017.

The BlackBerry KEYone launches today in the United Kingdom and is available in-store exclusively from Selfridges on Oxford Street in London priced at £499.

The BlackBerry KEYone includes a 12MP rear camera with an industry leading camera sensor (Sony IMX378) that captures sharp, crisp photos in any light.

The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM and a 3,505mAh battery.
