Announced at MWC conference in Feb 2015 as the BlackBerry Mercury, the BlackBerry KEYone finally came to the stores in April 2015. If you’re visually identifying the KEYone as the right device to trade in to a buyback store, one of the stand out visual features is the QWERTY keyboard, the metallic strip across the top with a speaker centered beside the camera.
The BlackBerry KEYone had a fingerprint reader in the space bar of the keyboard. The touchscreen was 4.5 inches (1080 by 1620 pixels) with most the visual ratio of the phone being taken up by the keyword and speak/camera strip. The KEYone was also a single SIM device with the dual SIM option in India.
The BlackBerry KEYone your selling was released on Android 7.1 Nougat, the CPU was not that groundbreaking for the time but worked well. Powered by 4GB RAM on Snapdragon 625, the KEYone’s 2GHz octa core processor did the job but like we mentioned, noting to write home about.
Camera wise, the BlackBerry KEYone you’re recycling featured a 12 megapixel rear mounted camera with dual LED flash and 2160p recording. The selfie shooter was mounted on the front and packed 8megapixels with 1080p recoding.
Back in the mid to late 2000’s BlackBerry devices were strong rivals to iPhones, then they fell off the map. The BlackBerry KEYone was released in April 2017 after being teased as being called ‘BB Mercury’ and took a gamble with bringing the cell phone QWERTY keyboard back from the dead. All in all this phone was aimed at the business minded and the smaller screen and average specs meant any enjoyment ended after you left the office.
