One of the latest devices from BlackBerry is this KEYone smartphone, and it has finally been launched in India. The biggest and the most visible feature of the phone is its large touchscreen along with a physical QWERTY keyboard. The device is perfect for those who want to enjoy the best of both worlds.
The display is a 4.5-inch panel laid out in 3:2 aspect ratio and comes with a resolution of 1620 x 1080. Below the display, you will find BlackBerry’s iconic QWERTY keyboard consisting of 4 rows of keys. You will be pleased to know that the keys are backlit for your late-night chats, and the keyboard is smart enough to support touch gestures, flick typing, and up to 52 customizable shortcuts. Above all, the space bar of the keyboard houses the fingerprint scanner.
On the software front; the BlackBerry KEYone runs on a near-stock version of Android 7.1.1 along with a few security and productivity apps from BlackBerry. The phone is made out of aluminum and has a soft touch back that offers a better grip.
A Snapdragon 625 processor sits under the hood to power the device along with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage along with an expansion slot. Interestingly, the variant available globally has just 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It is a dual SIM device with hybrid slots, and it supports 4G VoLTE.
On the back of the phone, you will find a 12MP camera with Sony IMX378 sensor, PDAF, f/2.0 aperture, 4K video recording, and dual-tone LED flash. An 8MP camera is there on the front. The battery capacity of the phone is 3505mAh, and it supports Quick Charge 3.0 that can charge the phone to 50% in just 36 minutes.
The BlackBerry KEYone will go on sale in India starting August 8th for a price of Rs. 39,990 exclusively from Amazon.
