You’ll Want to Get Your Hands on BlackBerry’s New KeyOne

When is the last time that you have seen a smartphone with a keyboard? BlackBerry is on a mission to make the keyboard cool again with the brand new KeyOne. This BlackBerry is distinctly different than other smartphones.

Geared towards business users, the KeyOne packs both a full QWERTY keyboard and a standard touchscreen. Running 7.1 Nougat, which is the latest version of Android, this sleek smartphone also has all of the software that you would expect from BlackBerry, such as the BlackBerry Messenger and BlackBerry Hub.

The smart keyboard responds to touch gestures, such as pressing and flicks. The tactile keyboard makes it easier and more intuitive to write emails and search the internet.

One of the KeyOne’s best features is its level of security. It was designed to be the most secure Android device ever making it very valuable for business users.

The BlackBerry KeyOne’s 12-megapixel autofocus large-pixel rear camera is pretty impressive. It has Sony’s IMX 378 camera sensors, which are similar to the ones seen in Google’s Pixel. The KeyOne shoots fairly balanced and detailed colour photos even in low light.

The KeyOne offers remarkable battery life thanks to a large 3,505 mAh battery. Also, this phone offers exceptional charging time too. You can get 50 percent of the phone’s power back after just 36 minutes of charging.
