Last year John Chen, the CEO of BlackBerry confirmed that there won’t be any new smartphones from the company. However, thanks to licensing agreements, a new BlackBerry phone is expected to show up soon titled as the BlackBerry KeyOne or the BlackBerry DTEK70. This smartphone will be actually manufactured by a Chinese firm, TCL but BlackBerry is involved with it as well. We got a glimpse of the phone at the CES 2017 but we still don’t know much about this phone. Before we get to the specs that we got from leaks and rumors, let’s take a look at the BlackBerry KeyOneDubai price first. It’s expected to cost around 2000 to AED 2400 . Now let’s see if it will be a good idea to wait for the BlackBerry KeyOne release date UAE or not.
It’s rare these days to see a phone with QWERTY keyboard so if you are in the market for one, you can start waiting for the BlackBerry KeyOne release date UAE. The phone will be packing a QWERTY keyboard with the 4.5-inch screen. A new feature of this keyboard is that it will be capacitive which means users will be able to swipe over these keyboard for scrolling pages. Users don’t have to depend on specific keys or get to the screen every time they want to scroll up or down. It’s rumored to show 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution but there are other rumors about 720p resolution as well. For those who are interested to buy a phone with a physical QWERTY keyboard, there is the BlackBerry Priv and BlackBerry Passport that you can check out. These are almost in the same pricing range as the BlackBerry KeyOne Dubai price so pricing won’t be a problem here.
At this point, it’s slightly difficult to talk about the processor as there are multiple rumors. One of the rumors suggests that the upcoming phone will be packing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor while there are other rumors about Qualcomm Snapdragon 635 which is slightly disappointing. It might be paired with 3 or 4GB of RAM. There are multiple rumors about built-in storage as well but it won’t be more than 64GB. There is a microSD card slot if that doesn’t sound enough. It will be the first BlackBerry phone to run Android Nougat 7.0 once it’s here. There is the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus which is expected to show up in the same time as the BlackBerry KeyOne release date UAE.
Another major feature of the BlackBerry KeyOne is expected to be its camera. The rear camera will be using the same sensor as the Google Pixel XL, the Sony IMX378 camera sensor so it will be interesting to see what the camera has to offer. The front camera is a good 8-megapixel one. It will definitely compete with the likes of iPhone 7 Plus once it’s here.
The Mobile World Congress is almost here and BlackBerry is expected to unveil this upcoming smartphone there in a launch event. If you are satisfied with the BlackBerry KeyOne Dubai price, all you have to do is wait for the phone to show up.
