BlackBerry KeyOne Launches In The US May 31st

It will then be available unlocked in the USA from May 31, priced at $549 and compatible with both GSM and CDMA networks.

"BlackBerry is giving a 4.5" 1080p display, a frugal, but powerful Snapdragon 625 chipset, a 12 MP camera with large pixels, and a hearty 3500 mAh juicer that promises incredible battery life with these specs. The biggest difference between the BlackBerry KEYone and the Curve and Bold lines is the fact that it runs on Android.

BlackBerry and TCL just announced the release of the KEYone in United States and Canada, starting from the end of May. While its seemingly-antiquated design necessitates a stubbier screen than a typical smartphone, the excellent hardware keyboard feels flawless - just as it did years ago on older BlackBerry models.

Gold said there are probably many BlackBerry customers who are eager to get a new hardware-enabled keyboard on a phone that also supports a touchscreen. The BlackBerry KEYone comes with the signature QWERTY keypad slider below the device, and it also features a fingerprint sensor on the space-bar as well as capacitive touch on the entire keyboard for scrolling.

BlackBerry and TCL - the company which designed the phone under a licensing deal with BlackBerry - are going to use as much of May as possible, announcing a release date of May 31 today.

An unlocked CDMA or GSM version of the device should cost $549. Select carriers, too, plan on selling the phone; however, BlackBerry isn't sharing that with us right now.
