BlackBerry KEYone (Mercury): New and unique features


The BlackBerry KEYone, best known until now under the codename “Mercury”, is here and it is one of the most peculiar Android devices bearing the name of a big phone maker you'll see in 2017. The KEYone bets heavily on classic BlackBerry staples, such as the iconic QWERTY keyboard and the enhanced security features, while trying to somehow fit in with the smartphone standards of today. It's a difficult task, no doubt about that, but make no mistake about it – although the BlackBerry KEYone is “current” in many aspects, it is not a smartphone with mass-market appeal and it doesn't strive to be one.

The BlackBerry KEYone is a distinctly different device with unique features that you won't find anywhere else. From its design, through the modified version of Android it runs, down to its very core, the KEYone is its own thing entirely, and these are some of the phone's best stand-out features:
