Smartphone Deal: BlackBerry KEYone, Fully Unlocked With 4G LTE For $339.99 [Usually $380]
BlackBerry’s Android-powered KEYone smartphone is currently being discounted via Amazon. Available right now with an 11% discount, the KEYone offers an array of intriguing and powerful features and comes as part of BlackBerry’s adventure into the world of the Android OS.
One of the first thing that you will notice is that the KEYone instantly “looks” like a BlackBerry device. It contains that extremely familiar BlackBerry design DNA which has made the hardware so popular with business users on a global scale over the years. However, what it doesn’t contain is the familiar BlackBerry operating system that has been falling dramatically in popularity. This piece-of-kit runs the world’s most popular mobile operating system in the form of Android 7.1 Nougat. It’s “Distinctively BlackBerry” but also different enough from other BlackBerry devices that it could just pique your interest.
The smartphone comes with a smart keyboard offering touch navigation and faster predictive text input. Users can create customized shortcuts for text entry and it even has an embedded fingerprint scanner for biometric detection, security, and authentication. From a physical design perspective, the KEYone offers an anodized aluminum casing and textured soft touch grip with an impact-resistant frame that sits around the 4.5-inch touch-screen display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The smart keyboard and highly responsive touchscreen should mean that interacting with the underlying Android operating system is an absolute pleasure.
The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 series processor and includes a large 3505mAh battery that should keep the device powered-up all day. It offers Quick Charge 3.0 charging technology to get the device up to 50% charge in just 36-minutes and provides faster LTE for super-fast file sharing and data downloads. It may be extremely confusing to think of BlackBerry aiming to capture anything other than the business market with its smartphones but that is exactly what is happening with this hardware.
If you have been looking for a new smartphone and want to try out the wonderful hardware of BlackBerry mixed with the power and performance of Android, then this is a wonderful opportunity to do exactly that. Grab it right now from the link below.
