The all new Blackberry’s 2017 flagship device, the Blackberry KEYone, got released in April 2017. This is a world class business phone with Blackberry’s signature hard QWERTY keyboard, which comes with its own distinctive features like the touch navigation, flick typing and user decided shortcuts which allows you to personalize your phone just how you want it. It has a great build with a strong aluminum frame, an impact resistant display and a soft textured back. Like BB says, this phone is built to last.
With a 4.5 inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen and scratch resistant display above its keyboard, the KEYone has a resolution of 1080×1620 pixels (433 ppi pixel density) which is quite decent. A 16M color screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.
The BlackBerry KEYone packs a Qualcomm MSM Snapdragon 625 chipset with Adreno 506 GPU. An Octa-Core 2.0 GHz Cortex –A53 CPU and ships with Android Nougat straight out of its premium package. With 3GB of Ram and 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded to up to 256GB with a microSD card, you can surely have more than enough space to store your movies, audio and pictures without the worry of running out of space or your phone lagging.
The BlackBerry KEYone has a 12MP primary camera with f/2.0, auto-focus and a secondary 1080p 8MP secondary one. Both cameras are of good quality and produce good quality images. Video specs of 2190p@30fps and video stabilization is also a point to note.
In addition the KEYone’s sound quality is also great. Though not having a Hi-Fi deck you still get almost the same sound quality as with other phones with Hi-Fi, especially with its amazing and stunning BB branded ear-pods which it comes within its package.
Now for communication and network the KEYone supports WI-FI 802.11, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC, FM radio, GSM/HSPA/LTE networks and Quick Charging with the type C 1.10 reversible connector. Its Quick charge will see your phone up from 0-50% in just 30 minutes!
It also has a fingerprint sensor which is super fast while unlocking your device and a non-removable 3505 mAh battery which will see you last a full day to two of maximum use. This surely is a great phone of business class. I would recommend it to any users looking to buy a phone of good quality, compact build, security and durability.
