BlackBerry Keyone Specifications Review and Best Price In India

Earlier dubbed as 'Mercury', Keyone was brought out in front of the world at a pre-event launch at the ongoing MWC in Barcelona. Although the phone is designed by BlackBerry, a company called TCL is talking care of its manufacturing. The Keyone is also being regarded as the 'most secured Android phone yet', by the company, of course.

Featuring an aluminum unibody supported by a soft textured back, the phone sports a physical QWERTY keypad, a feature customary to most smartphones devised by the company.

There is a 4.5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1620 x 1080 in addition to the keypad and the processor used is a Snapdragon 625 one of Qualcomm make, which is coupled with an Adreno 506 GPU and 3 gigs of RAM. In-built ROM is 32GB while the OS is the latest Android 7.1 Nougat, which is there with an additional layer of customized patches and apps to go with it.

The cameras in question are a 12MP one on the rear which has a Sony IMX 368 sensor having f/2.0 aperture, while the one at the front is an 8MP one with flash.

Also, the Keyone features a 3,050mAh battery having provisions for QuickCharge 3.0.

The phone will start shipping from April and the BlackBerry Keyone best price in India is expected to be around 36,500INR.

BlackBerry KEYone review

The KEYone is fitted with a 4.5-inch IPS LCD touch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio. The resolution is cropped from a 16:9 1080p display, so there are still 1080 pixels going across, but the display is only 1620 pixels tall. Colors are vivid and fairly accurate so viewing photos of your family on this display should be a pleasant experience. Viewing angles are not as good, but that's not really a problem- someone using a BlackBerry would probably rather not have a display that's easy to eavesdrop on in public.

This display's screen brightness is able to reach 467 nits when the slider is maxed out. read more →

  • Physical keyboard
  • Sophisticated high-end design
  • The CPU is not top-of-the-line, though quite power efficient
  • 3:2 aspect ratio means some apps might not render properly; letterboxing on 16:9 videos
  • Only available in a single color scheme

BlackBerry KEYone Review

The third time really is the charm. The earlier Android phones BlackBerry made with partner TCL felt generic, but the KEYone is an impressive device that channels the style and functionality of classic models. Even better, the KEYone is a respectable performer with solid battery life. Throw in an excellent camera plus a satisfying keyboard and you’ve got the best Android-powered BlackBerry out there. read more →

  • BlackBerry fans will dig the keyboard
  • Respectable battery life
  • Solid mid-range performance
  • Has the best camera of any BlackBerry
  • The keyboard doesn’t make sense for some
  • Camera sometimes struggles with exposure
  • Some annoying oversights in software

BlackBerry KEYone review

BlackBerry KeyOne is a sophisticated-looking smartphone that resurrects a physical keyboard in the modern Android era. Its tactical QWERTY keyboard offers a dose of nostalgia, while its smart and secure software give businesses some peace of mind. Just know that the mid-range specs will only get you so far and its entertainment capabilities make this BlackBerry feel as if it clocks out at 5pm sharp when it comes to the fun stuff. read more →

BlackBerry KEYone Review

The BlackBerry KEYone was the easiest to let prejudices affect our enthusiasm for the handset. BlackBerry as a brand? Hasn't that experiment played out by now? Hardware QWERTY keyboards on phones? Haven't we all agreed that on-screen keyboards are the obvious way to go?

And when we looked at the middle-of-the-road specs, combined with pricing that, while below flagship level, is still north of similarly-equipped mid-range competition, it was easy to think that the KEYone was attempting to fill some niche that just didn't seem to exist in reality. read more →

  • Incredibly satisfying hardware keyboard
  • Beautiful, solid-feeling construction
  • Phenomenal battery life
  • Decent, reliable camera
  • Pricing steep compared to similarly-specced phones
  • No extras like wireless charging/waterproofing
  • BlackBerry apps can be hit-and-miss
  • Unusual screen size/shape and device layout isn't for everyone
