BlackBerry has re-released the KEYone in a new style, “Black Edition” with improved specifications.
The KEYone was unveiled in February at the Mobile World Congress, catching the eye by being one of the very few Android devices, if not the only one, to have a physical keyboard.
The new Black Edition was revealed recently at the IFA in Berlin.
Blackberry is now owned by TCL, and the company says the KEYone exceeded expectations, leading to the decision to expand the line. The Black Edition will reportedly arrive in mid-September, and will cost $700 (N259,000).
“We wouldn’t have done a black edition worldwide if the demand from consumers wasn’t that strong,” said TCL’s global head of sales Francois Mahieu.
Asides from the color change, the Black Edition comes with 4GB of RAM, up from the original 3GB, and 64GB of internal memory space, up from the original 32GB.
The rest of the phone is pretty much the same, down to the operating systems and battery life.
