Selfridges range BlackBerry KEYone exclusively

BlackBerry KeyOne now available in the UK, exclusively from Selfridges

BlackBerry told us that it will have more carrier availability details in the next few weeks before the official launch date in May.

TCL COMMUNICATIONS has announced that the BlackBerry KeyOne is now available in the UK.

Originally slated to launch by the end of this month, the Android-powered KEYone, will now arrive in the USA starting on May 31.

In addition to the physical keyboard, the KeyOne has a 4.5-inch touchscreen, 12-megapixel camera, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. In Canada, the smartphone will be available for pre-orders starting May 18.

Bolted on the back is a 12MP rear camera, with 8MP on the front. We also know it will cost $549 whenever it launches.

April's nearly over, so where the hell is Kim Kardashian's next phone, the BlackBerry KEYone?

BlackBerry's final in-house designed smartphone is now available in the United Kingdom - but to get your hands on the BlackBerry KEYone, you'll have to go to Selfridges' flagship store on Oxford Street.

TCL's BlackBerry KeyOne, featuring a 35-key physical keyboard, launches in the US and Canada in May. From our time with the KEYone, the keyboard seems to be the well made and responsive, and with customizable shortcuts for 52 different keys, you'll certainly be able to put it to work for you.

The KEYone is a big deal for the nascent BlackBerry Mobile brand, which is putting a considerable amount of marketing power behind the phone.

On the software side, BlackBerry KeyOne runs Android 7.1 Nougat. This will be the first BlackBerry phone released by TCL, and I'm sure a number of BlackBerry diehards will be happy to see the trademark keyboard make a comeback. BlackBerry boasts 26 hours of battery life with mixed use, due to its 3,505mAh battery.

BlackBerry's brand continues to live in the form of its latest smartphone, KEYone, which was unveiled by Alcatel phone maker "TCL" at MWC'17 earlier this year. TCL said its first smartphone for BlackBerry would focus on three key features: security, productivity and reliability.
