BlackBerry is preparing to present today at MWC 2017 the new smartphone, BlackBerry KeyOne, but as it seems, the official specifications and the images "leaked" before their time. Wrong or advertising trick, we do not care, since we can now see the device that will be presented.
A page of the company presenting the product appeared for a while (now it has been downloaded) revealing all the details about the upcoming phone, such as running Android 7.1 Nougat and having a 4.5-inch IPS scratch-resistant LCD screen with resolution 1620 × 1080 pixels and 3: 2 aspect ratio.
In addition, the smartphone will "wear" an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clocked at 2.0GHz, and a 64-bit Adreno 506 graphics processing unit. It will have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It will have a 12MP rear camera with Sony IMX378 sensor, 4k at 30 fps and f / 2.0 aperture.
The smartphone appears to have a 8MP camera on the front with 1080p video, while the battery capacity is in 3.505mAh with Quick Charge 3.0 to charge the battery at 50% within 36 minutes. The dimensions of the BlackBerry KeyOne are: 149,3 x 72,5 x 9,4 millimeters and weighs 180 grams.
The upcoming BlackBerry KeyOne seems to be a mid-range device, but the key feature of KeyOne is the QWERTY physical keyboard, which is customizable on every key and enables swipe up the keys. Users of the device can connect any key they want as a shortcut to open applications or contacts. The USB Type-C port is also displayed in the images.
The product page also revealed that the BlackBerry KeyOne will come with the BlackBerry Hub, a tool for storing all messages and personal information in a safe place. The price and availability of the upcoming device were not revealed.
The device has just been announced and, according to the company, will be available from April 2017 at the 599 price in Europe, £ 499 in the UK, and $ 549 in the United States. Details and pre - orders from here.
