BlackBerry KEYone will launch in the USA on May 31

The BlackBerry KeyOne is finally available for pre-ordering and it begins May 18, 2017, in most markets.

Given BlackBerry's recent woes it seems unusual to limit the supply of its handset to one retailer (albeit temporarily) but the company evidently hopes the association with Selfridges will elevate the appeal of its product.

BlackBerry KeyOne is the big comeback for everyone's favorite (and pretty much only) option for a smartphone with a tactile physical keyboard. The carrier-locked variant of the BlackBerry KEYone will be available on the market with a price tag of CAD 199 which is 10,000 INR approximately.

The KeyOne will be BlackBerry's last smartphone designed and engineered in-house. There's also a fingerprint scanner built into the spacebar.

The KEYone is the first BlackBerry device released under TCL Communication after a brand licencing agreement was struck between the two firms.

The latest Android smartphone from BlackBerry, the KEYone, is set to hit the market in the US and Canada on May 31, according to device manufacturer TCL. And yes you heard it right, it will run on Android.

'Be more like Trump': Jean-Marie Le Pen criticises daughter's presidential campaign
Le Pen finished second in the first round of voting Sunday and she will now face centrist Emmanuel Macron in a run-off election. Many pollsters had placed him second to Le Pen in the opening round; however Macron eventually garnered more votes than Le Pen.

The KEYone features a standout physical keyboard with touch features embedded.

The KEYone may not become a runway hit, but a carrier deal might allow BlackBerry to regain at least some of its lost reputation.

BlackBerry's software is the other half of the story. The new BlackBerry smartphone was launched on 27 April 2017 for £499 in the United Kingdom, $549 in the USA and €599 in the EU.

At the core of this new BlackBerry smartphone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 mobile platform with the Qualcomm® Adreno™ 506 GPU. Still, the phone felt perfectly responsive in use, and the positive flipside of this decision is that it should be more efficient than most, especially when coupled with the high-capacity 3,505mAh battery.

The smartphone is backed by a 3505mAh battery and comes with QuickCharge 3.0 support along with a "Boost" charging feature. While on the front there is an 8 MP camera with a wide-angle lens.
