Watch BlackBerry KeyOne (BlackBerry Mercury) MWC 2017 event live stream here

Hey, the BlackBerry KeyOne (that was widely known under its BlackBerry Mercury codename) has leaked out mere hours before the official announcement, but if you want to know the little details that make a difference and see the device in action, you should tune in to the official BlackBerry KeyOne announcement event livestream on YouTube.

The BlackBerry KeyOne is now actually made by TCL, while BlackBerry is a licensing partner, but will not handle the actual sales and distribution of the phone, so it will be TCL that will be responsible for the official announcement event as well.

The KeyOne is expected to feature a full-on QWERTY keyboard that will recognize swipe and gestures, in addition to physical touch, and the phone will carry special BlackBerry sauce like the increased security and the company's popular safe and private messaging services. The phone will come equipped with a 4.5-inch display with a different, 3:2 aspect ratio, and will be powered by the Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor. The KeyOne is also said to have the same camera sensor as in the Google Pixel. That is promising: after all, the Pixel is one of the best camera phone on the market currently.

The BlackBerry KeyOne is also coming to North America and will support AT&T and T-Mobile 4G LTE bands, but will likely not work on Verizon or Sprint. Tune in to the official live stream to learn all the details.
