The new vs the old: BlackBerry KeyOne vs Priv vs Passport specs comparison

7

So, the BlackBerry KeyOne has been announced to the delight of loyal fans. Well, the phone itself is developed and built by TCL, but BlackBerry still provides the software suite, services, and security, along with its name of course. So, it's a new age for BlackBerry phones — first hinted at by the introduction of the Priv, the hardware keyboard-equipped business-class devices no longer run on the dying BlackBerry OS, but come with Android on board.

We thought it would be neat to take a look back at what are now the last two major, keyboard-sporting phones, made by BlackBerry itself, and compare them to this new whippersnapper. You can check them out in the three-way table below.

The KeyOne is definitely a midranger under the hood, but thankfully has a lot going for it as an overall package.
