BlackBerry has always had a different approach to smartphones. The Qwerty keyboard has always been a part of Blackberry smartphones and the Blackberry KeyOne is no exception. The BlackBerry KeyOne, codenamed “Mercury” was launched at MWC 2017.
Yesterday, Crackberry noted that Blackberry had mentioned that the KeyOne smartphone is set to go into production during the end of April and launch being pushed to May 2017. The KeyOne will have a big role in deciding the companies future and unfortunately the smartphone has been delayed.
It is worthy to note that there was never a final date given by Blackberry and hence this shouldn’t come as a surprise.
The Blackberry KeyOne is built in collaboration with TCL. The device sports a 4.5 inch display and a physical keyboard which doubles as a trackpad and a fingerprint sensor.
