BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition unveiled, two new BlackBerry phones coming in 2018

TCL, the company that owns the BlackBerry smartphone brand, has just announced it will expand its portfolio with two new BlackBerry phones, which will land later this year. Depending on how well they will be received, additional smartphones may be introduced by the end of 2018.

In addition, TCL introduced a new version of the highly-acclaimed BlackBerry KEYone smartphone, the so-called Bronze Edition. The handset will be available in select markets outside the United States, including Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition will feature dual-SIM support and matte bronze finish. It comes with all the security and productivity features that made the KEYone such as popular smartphone among BlackBerry fans.

Specs-wise, it has the same hardware as the Black Edition version, including 4GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage. According to TCL, BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition will go on sale later in Q1 2018 in select markets mentioned earlier for a price that will be disclosed later on.

I'm imagining a KEYone sequel but with a completely bezel-less display, going the route of gestures in place of the navigation keys, and keeping that fine physical keyboard, and making it even more great.

"TCL, the company that owns the BlackBerry smartphone brand" I'm sorry Cosmin but I'm pretty sure that TCL is just a licencee of the Blackberry brand. And that it excludes licence rights to the Indonesian and Indian markets if I'm not mistaken.

Would this be compatible in the US with two TMobile sims?
