The Blackberry KEYone Black Edition has made its way to the United States via Amazon. The slightly bumped-up-in-specs version of the KEYone is $549.99 at the online retailer and readily available.
Powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 625, the Blackberry KEYone Black Edition sports 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage built-in, which can be expanded up to an additional 256GB thanks to the MicroSD slot. It has a 4.5-inch display has a resolution of 1620 x 1080 and is powered by a 3505mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 3.0. Of course, the unique feature of this phone is the built-in physical QWERTY keyboard.
Harkening back to the Blackberry’s of old, the KEYone has a physical keyboard below the display that supports gesture typing and is where you will find the fingerprint scanner.
Camera wise, the main shooter on the rear of the device is a 12MP model while you have a 8MP selfie camera on the front.
The KEYone Black Edition runs on Android Nougat 7.1 but it is expected to get updated to Android Oreo sometime in the first half of 2018. A firm date isn’t available from Blackberry.
