TCL Communication restores the BlackBerry KeyOne to the IFA in a somewhat better equipped version. The smartphone is equipped with more memory and more internal memory. The biggest difference to the previous model is the new color: The BlackBerry KeyOne Black Edition is completely matt black.
All components, which were originally executed in silver at the BlackBerry KeyOne (test), are faithfully wrapped in matte black in the KeyOne Black Edition. The change provides the keyboard smartphone with a more high-quality and at the same time restrained look. Only the individual keys – the crossbars already – the keyboard below the display could not convert BlackBerry to matt. A BlackBerry device was wanted by many customers, explained BlackBerry in the conversation.
However, it does not remain with the purely external adaptation. TCL also uses the presentation of the Black Edition to give the smartphone a slightly better equipment of the memory. The RAM raises the manufacturer from 3 to 4 GB, the internal memory grows from 32 to 64 GB. The expansion is still possible via a microSD memory card. The other features of the KeyOne have not changed with the Black Edition.
The BlackBerry KeyOne Black Edition will cost 50 euros more than the normal version, which is retained by BlackBerry in the third quarter of this year. The recommended retail price is 649 euros.
In addition, BlackBerry reported that the KeyOne Android 8.0 Oreo (test) should be reported with ComputerBase. But there is no date yet.
