  • Intelligent keyboard

    BlackBerry’s iconic keyboard is back, but with a difference. Now you can set shortcuts to every button, opening apps in an instant.

  • Powerful camera

    The 12MP rear camera is powered by a Sony IMX378 sensor, and has large pixels to capture lots of light for bright photos.

  • Android-powered

    The KEYone runs on the world’s most popular mobile operating system, Android by Google.

Design and display

Breaking the mould

The KEYone has a 4.5-inch display with Full HD resolution - the distinctly different shape making way for the smart keyboard. It takes up less room than an on-screen one, and leaves you with more display to play with.  

Keyboard shortcuts

Each of the 52 keys can be programmed to support a shortcut with a long-press. So, you could save ‘I” for Instagram or “C” for camera - it’s up to you. There’s also a secret fingerprint scanner inside the space bar.

 

Camera

Built with expertise

On the back of the smartphone is a powerful 12MP camera, built with Sony’s industry-leading camera expertise. The sensor features large 1.55μm pixels, to let in loads of light for bright and colourful photos, and it can shoot video in 4K.

Front-facing lens

On the front of the phone is a secondary camera, able to film video in Full HD. The 8MP sensor is perfect for video chatting, using the likes of Skype, or Google’s own, Duo

Under the hood

Super secure

With BlackBerry’s security software, the KEYone is one of the most secure Android smartphones available. You’ll receive monthly security updates - free to download – and the DTEK security app comes pre-installed on the device.  

Plenty of power

A 2.0GHz octa-core processor is in charge of keeping all your favourite apps and games running smoothly, backed up by 3GB RAM. If that’s not enough there’s also a huge 3,505mAh battery, which is one of the largest cell capacities available at the moment.

BlackBerry KEYone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blackberry back to its best!!! As a long term fan of Blackberrys in years gone by, I was devastated when I had to move away from the brand when the Blackberry OS stopped being supported by app developers. After years of so-so iphones, I decided to look again at the brand and found the KEYone. Tried one out in store and BOOM!!, Blackberry back to its brilliant best. Oh the joy of a physical keyboard married to some great features such as finger print recognition, some nice tweaks on the standard Android OS and a battery that lasts and lasts. The phone just oozes quality and feels great to handle. A word of praise has to go to Carphone Warehouse for stocking them and offering great deals, not many do. If you've ever had a Blackberry you will love this and for those who haven't, give it a try. You wont be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great offering from Blackberry I've had my KeyOne for 4 months now and am extremely pleased with it. A lot of the small niggles I had with my Priv have been addressed. The form factor is great, really nice to type on and screen is good. I've dropped it several times and the only issue has been the back cover becoming slightly detached. I have also managed to put a small scratch on the screen, something that I couldn't mamange with older Blackberries. Overall, very happy and now considering upgrade to Black Edition.
