BlackBerry kicked off the Mobile World Congress by announcing their new Android based smartphone BlackBerry KEYone. The smartphone brings back the most iconic feature that BlackBerry devices were known for, a physical QWERTY keyboard.
With BlackBerry KEYone design and functionality seems to be the focus and that can be seen in the final product. You can even assign different shortcuts to the keyboard with 52 customized shortcuts. Assign any function or even get to fire any app by just pressing a key. In addition, the keyboard can also be used as a keypad, swipe, scroll or even doodle.
With competitors pushing for very minimal displays and powerful processing, BlackBerry has banked on software and security. With a 4.5-inch IPS display and a QWERTY keyboard, BlackBerry is banking on being different to appeal to their target market. Let’s have a look at the official images of BlackBerry KEYone and see the edgy design details.
