We’re getting time with phone expected to resurrect the brand, and sharing a first look at the KeyOne from BlackBerry in a hands on video.
Here’s the video:
The full physical keyboard is obviously the standout feature here, but we wanted to show everything about this phone. But yes, you do get the same keyboard BlackBerry made famous years ago as well as new capabilities. Gestures and button assignments are live, meaning you can swipe over the keyboard to navigate or assist apps to certain letters for quick launching.
Other than the keyboard standing out, BlackBerry’s KeyOne is a phone on the cusp of being high-end. Certain specifications keep it mid-range, though. It features a 4.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, 12.3MP / 8MP cameras, a 3505mAh battery with fast charging, a USB-C port, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat with BlackBerry’s software overlay.
If you’re interested, be ready for the BlackBerry KeyOne to be released in April for $549.
