BlackBerry KeyOne Launches In The US May 31st

BlackBerry KEYone

The BlackBerry Keyone will first arrive in Canada with pre-orders opening May 18.

BlackBerry Mobile claims the KEYone is the most secure Android handset in the world, and while the firm has long tolled the smartphone security bell, perhaps never more than now has the note rung as clear. It has selected TCL as its global licensing partner which means that TCL is now going to develop and sell BlackBerry-branded handsets.

Other UK networks will also carry the new device soon, although BlackBerry could not confirm which carriers, or when it would be available.

The KeyOne is the successor to the BlackBerry Priv, and features, in true BlackBerry style, a full physical keyboard.

When can you get your fingers on that old-school keyboard in a modern phone? Just the opposite, it prepping the release of another smartphone with a physical QWERTY keyboard. Each key can be assigned to a different shortcut and a fingerprint scanner is integrated into the space bar.

He also tweeted that production of the KEYone was underway, "but we want to be certain we can meet our customer demands..."

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. There's no word when BlackBerry plans to bring the KeyOne to India. This BlackBerry security application monitors your other apps, alerting you if one is accessing your camera to take a picture or video, turning your microphone on, sending a text message, accessing your contacts or location.

The KEYone is the first BlackBerry device released under TCL Communication after a brand licencing agreement was struck between the two firms. It is backed up by a 3505 mAh battery and has QuickCharge 3.0 with a "Boost" charging feature that gives 50 percent charge in "roughly 36 minutes". While on the front there is an 8 MP camera with a wide-angle lens.

At the core of this new BlackBerry smartphone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 mobile platform with the Qualcomm® Adreno™ 506 GPU.
