BlackBerry KEYone Price and Launch Date Announced By TCL

BlackBerry KeyOne

The phone will first show up for pre-order in Canada on May 18 for $199 with a two year contract, from carriers such as Rogers, SaskTel, TELUS Business, Bell and Bell MTS. TCL is licensed by BlackBerry to make the Android device.

The BlackBerry® KEYone reimagines how we communicate with a Smart Keyboard that goes beyond typing. "Selfridges, voted world's best department store three times consecutively, have been a longtime supporter of BlackBerry", said Johnathan Young, BlackBerry's United Kingdom country manager. If one of those heads belongs to you, then you might be pleased to know that BlackBerry has finally announced a release date for the phone. So the BlackBerry KeyOne is made by TCL with BlackBerry branding over the top.

The stock software keyboard on smartphones are pretty great right out of the box, but even if you don't prefer that experience, there are so many great options to choose from by third parties.

The four-row physical keyboard is tightly stacked beneath a modest 4.5-inch IPS LCD display, ensuring both content creation and consumption are - depending on your viewpoint - equally compromised or catered for.

After a long wait, TCL has finally announced the launch date for the BlackBerry KeyOne for the USA and Canada markets.

The KEYone may not become a runway hit, but a carrier deal might allow BlackBerry to regain at least some of its lost reputation.

A USB Type-C port provides power and wired connectivity, and the non-removable 3,505 mAh battery claims 26 hours of mixed use.

After all the anticipation and positive response received from the BlackBerry community on the BlackBerry KEYone, it's an honor to offer this all-new Android-powered BlackBerry smartphone to customers across Canada (and the U.S).

The processor's a midrange Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, but from what I could tell it can hold its own. There's a 12MP camera at the back, an 8MP front shooter, a 3505mAh battery, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat on board.
