  • BlackBerry KeyOne

Partners who will sell the KeyOne in Canada include Bell, Bell MTS, Rogers, SaskTel, and TELUS Business.

We first saw the BlackBerry KeyOne at CES 2017, and it's an impressive attempt at reinventing the enterprise-focused smartphone.

BlackBerry has been out of the hardware game for a while now, but the storied brand will live on thanks to licensing deals with other manufacturers including TCL, of Alcatel fame. And finally, there is some official statement regarding the availability of the smartphone which has been developed by BlackBerry in collaboration with TCL. The BlackBerry KeyOne is the first device to feature the company's new "Boost" charging technology, which promises to charge to 50 per cent power in precisely 36 minutes.

The BlackBerry KEYone comes with a premium metal uni-body design with Blackberry's iconic hardware keyboard underneath the display.

The Android-powered device has a QWERTY keyboard and is the last product designed in part by BlackBerry. The Smart Keyboard, as it's called, responds to touch gestures, can be programmed to launch up to 52 customizable shortcuts, and has a fingerprint sensor built directly into the spacebar.

TCL and BlackBerry have just announced that BlackBerry KEYone is finally going on sale in the USA and Canada markets starting May 31. This new device, with the iconic physical keyboard, was initially expected to be now for sale but the company delayed the launch until May.

TCL COMMUNICATIONS has announced that the BlackBerry KeyOne is now available in the UK. Thankfully, it also runs Android now, so all of the apps you are used to, will be safe and secure on it. There's no word when BlackBerry plans to bring the KeyOne to India. For the US, Engadget reports the KEYone price to be around $549 for the unlocked variant with no details on the carrier-locked models. Its 3,505mAh battery is quite large for today's standards, so we can expect a nice battery life. While on the front there is an 8 MP camera with a wide-angle lens.
