In connection to 10 Years of CrackBerry celebrations, BlackBerry officially announced an Android-based smartphone at Mobile World Congress 2017 earlier this year with the brand name of BlackBerry KEYone. The smartphone brings BlackBerry’s iconic design and keyboard together with Android 7.1.1 Nougat to offer a distinctly different, yet distinctly BlackBerry experience.
The BlackBerry KEYone is built to last and features both a touch screen display and Smart Keyboard that responds to touch gestures making web browsing, reading emails and writing messages with flick typing; a much smoother and intuitive experience.
The face of the BlackBerry KEYone is highlighted by a 4.5-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 that offers greater impact and scratch resistance. The smartphone is wrapped in an anodized aluminum frame and soft-touch textured back.
Under the hood we meet a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset along with the Qualcomm Adreno 506 GPU and 3GB/32GB combination of RAM and internal storage which is expandable up to 2TB through the use of a microSD card.
When it comes to power backup, the BlackBerry KEYone offers a 3505 mAh battery – the largest ever in a BlackBerry device, enhanced by Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology to receive up to 50 percent charge in roughly 36 minutes plus.
For photos, the BlackBerry KEYone includes a 12MP rear camera with the industry leading Sony IMX378 camera sensor on the back with an 8MP front camera with fixed focus and 84-degree wide angle lens, making the photo taking experience on the BlackBerry KEYone a nice, complete offering.
The BlackBerry KEYone offers the most secure Android smartphone experience possible, and benefits from Best-in-class monthly Android security updates as well includes enhanced security features such as BlackBerry’s DTEK security monitoring app that lets you know when your privacy could be at risk and how you can take action to improve it.
