Today’s Deal is on the all new BlackBerry KEYone, the latest Android-powered phone from the company that also sports a physical keyboard. The KEYone drew a lot of attention when it was announced back in January with its keyboard and after a couple of delays, it is finally available for ordering. The GSM version of the phone is $549.99 on Amazon.
For those that don’t recall, the KEYone is a 4.5″ device that is powered by the Snadragon 625 processor. It has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It runs Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box and has the same cameras as you will find in the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. It is powered by a 3505mAh battery and has a physical QUERTY keyboard.
The storage on the KEYone is expandable thanks to the MicroSD slot and charging is done via the USB-C connector.
Because the phone is sold unlocked, support for networks here in the US is important. This GSM phone supports AT&T and T-Mobile with no problem. Here’s the full rundown of the supported 2G/3G/4G bands:
- GSM – 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
- HSDPA – 850 / 900 / 1700(AWS) / 1900 / 2100
- LTE Bands – 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 12(700), 13(700), 20(800), 25(1900), 26(850), 28(700), 29(700), 30(2300), 41(2500)
Demand for the BlackBerry KEYone is expected to be high and quantities will be limited.
