BlackBerry’s new device, the BlackBerry KEYone, is getting all the attention this week, primarily because of its nostalgic, aesthetic QWERTY keyboard: A 35 key physical keyboard with capacitive touch support. The phone also comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, Android 7.1 Nougat, BlackBerry Hub software, and more features.
In addition, the KEYone features a large battery, a 3505 mAh battery with quick-charge capability, and power management tools like Boost for faster charging. On its website, BlackBerry writes that the phone is secured with its security software, a DTEK security monitoring app, and Android security updates.
