The BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition offers an impressive upgrade

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The BlackBerry KEYone original edition combined the QWERTY keyboard we love BlackBerry for, with the full Android experience. Add to that the DTEK security system and we were sold.

However, this month we see BlackBerry unveiling an all-black version of the original black and silver device that comes with an upgrade in the RAM and internal storage departments. Listening to customers feedback, BlackBerry have inflated the internal offerings to give you more speed and more memory.

The Black Edition of the KEYone houses 4 GB of RAM, up from the 3 GB of RAM of its predecessor, and 64 GB of internal storage space instead of the original 32 GB of storage.

Check out the specification sheet for more details. Don’t forget all of our BlackBerry KEYone devices are available with UK and international delivery, and if you’re out of the EU you’ll pay the Ex VAT price.

Friday, September 1st, 2017

BlackBerry fans take note, the classic Blackberry KEYone has had a makeover inside and out, with a new sleek Black exterior and beefed up specs.

So whats new?

The buttons, frame and ring around the camera lens on the Black Edition are black instead of the silver on the original. To warrant the extra price tag, BlackBerry have also upgraded the internal specs slightly.  Now you’ll get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage on the Black Edition, up from 3GB and 32GB respectively on the KEYone original device.

Everything else about the two phones will be the same, down to the keyboard shortcuts and Android 7.1.2 software.
