The BlackBerry Keyone features a 4.5 inch 1080 x 1620 LCD touch display that comfortably allows users to swipe through the Android 7.1 Nougat OS. Don’t worry, BlackBerry kept its core features such as the BlackBerry store and the full physical QWERTY keyboard.
Processor and Storage
The Keyone also features 3 GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Octa-Core processor pushing 2.0 GHz. This is coupled with the Adreno 506 micro GPU for viewing crystal clear video and pictures. The BlackBerry Keyone also features native 32 GB on board storage with the option to expand it with an SD card.
Cameras and Sound
This new BlackBerry comes loaded with 2 cameras – one for the front, one for the back – and dual LED flash for low light situations. The rear camera has f/2.0 12 MP with the ability to take video at 30 FPS and 1080p resolution. The front camera is a 8 MP ready for all the selfies you can handle. The Keyone also comes with a loud speaker and active noise cancellation.
My Favorite Features and Price
The Keyone comes with a new fast charging feature that can charge the battery 50% in 36 minutes. This fast charging feature, coupled with the new Li-Ion 3505 mAh battery, will make your Blackberry Keyone last for days. It comes with a fingerprint sensor for security and is backed by the one of the safest Android released OS’s. This device is geared for business minded people or those living on the go needing the ability to rapidly send replies. At $549, I just might pick one up myself!
