Let us quickly take a look at some of the KEYone phone specs and features.

KEYone DESIGN, KEYBOARD & DISPLAY

The device sports an impressive designed distinctly different from other BlackBerry® smartphones.  The phone gets additional durability with its aluminium frame and a soft textured back.

The BlackBerry KEYone physical spacebar has also got a fingerprint sensor underneath as well as capacitive touch on the entire keyboard for effective scrolling without touching the screen. Its keyboard touch is sensitive and does a ton of neat tricks. The new feature lets you program all the keys to do something on a long press. For instance, long pressing the “B” button can launch the browser, or “F” could launch Facebook.

It is undeniable that a keyboard featured smartphone feels smart in the hand than a full touchscreen smartphone; it is easier to operate with just one hand.

For selfies imaging, this smartphone also sports an 8 megapixels front shooter with a wide-angle lens and a flash.

SOFTWARE & HARDWARE

BlackBerry KEYone runs latest Android 7.1 (Nougat) on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core SoC clocked at 2.0GHz, coupled with 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 506 GPU.

The new KEYone offers 32GB internal storage that is expandable up to 2TB via microSD card.

BATTERY

The device runs on a powerful 3505mAh battery capacity that’s said to give all-day battery life and support QuickCharge 3.0 with a ‘Boost’ charging feature that gives 50 percent charge in “roughly 36 minutes.”

CONNECTIVITY
