One other phone I want to highlight out of MWC in Barcelona: a new BlackBerry Android phone! With a proper hardware keyboard! The BlackBerry Priv from 2015 suffered from some performance issues, so I hope they get it right this time.
Now that the BlackBerry KEYone is official, that means the full run down of specs are available now as well. For the KEYone, every component of the device, including the Snapdragon 625 was specifically chosen with the goal of lengthening the battery life in mind. Mind you, the battery itself is the largest ever put in a BlackBerry, (3505 mAh) so we’re already off to a great start.
It looks nice, too. Very intrigued by this phone.
It looks pretty impressive except for that weird bit of shiny plastic below the spacebar. Looks like a big U-shaped key. I feel like it should not stick out as much as the keys.
