BlackBerry KeyOne: QWERTY-toting Android arrives in Blighty

If you are one of those waiting to buy the BlackBerry KEYone, we have some good news.

"BlackBerry fans in Canada will be extremely excited to have the BlackBerry KeyOne available in their market", Alex Thurber, head of BlackBerry's mobility solutions unit, said in a statement. In Canada, the smartphone will be available for pre-orders starting May 18.

Rounding off the KeyOne's specs is a 12MP rear-facing camera, complete with phase detection autofocus, while an 8MP camera sits on the front, and features an 84-degree wide-angle lens. For the US, Engadget reports the KEYone price to be around $549 for the unlocked variant with no details on the carrier-locked models.

PixabayWhen is the BlackBerry KEYone coming to Canada and the U.S.? Billed as a throwback to the golden generation of BlackBerry phones, the KEYone comes with the phone maker's iconic QWERTY keyboard. However, the report adds that there will be various offers from the telecom carriers in the USA to sweeten the deal, that includes Sprint to launch BlackBerry KEYone in the spring. The device will be available from Canadian carriers Bell, Bell MTS, Rgers, SaskTel and TELUS Business for CAD $199 (around US$146) with a two-year contract, according to TCL's press release. Each key can be assigned to a different shortcut and a fingerprint scanner is integrated into the space bar. Despite being the ancestral home of BlackBerry, the device will launch there later in May. There's no word when BlackBerry plans to bring the KeyOne to India. This will be the first BlackBerry phone released by TCL, and I'm sure a number of BlackBerry diehards will be happy to see the trademark keyboard make a comeback.

BlackBerry, under license by TCL Communications, has launched its latest Android-powered flagship smartphone, the KeyOne, in the UK.

What really sets a BlackBerry smartphone apart from any other Android device, are the enhanced security features built into every device, right from the start. The battery capacity is 3,505 mAh and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.
