TCL president Cistulli hints that big news about the BlackBerry KEYone is coming next week42
launched in Europe on May 5th at a price equivalent to $640 USD. The news that is coming out next week could have something to do with the U.S. release of the phone.
To refresh your memory, the BlackBerry KEYone features a 4.5-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1620. The Snapdragon 625 chipset is under the hood containing an octa-core 2GHz CPU, and the Adreno 506 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 2TB capacity microSD slot is available to those seeking additional storage. The 12MP rear-facing camera is equipped with an aperture of f/2.0, and there is a front-facing 8MP snapper on board to shoot selfies. A fingerprint scanner is cleverly embedded in the keyboard's space bar, and keeping the lights on is a 3505mAh battery. Android 7.1 is pre-installed.
We would be amiss if we didn't point out that the picture attached to Cistulli's tweet contains a bit of the device's retail box. It's not much, but we can see that it is a black container with the BlackBerry KEYone logo embossed on top in raised letters. It does give the impression that the KEYone is being marketed as a premium device.
