If you’ve been waiting patiently to get your thumbs under the BlackBerry KEYone’s physical keyboard, today it’s been revealed exactly when you’ll be able to do just that.
The BlackBerry KEYone will launch in the US and Canada on May 31. In the US, an unlocked KEYone will be sold for $549 that’ll work on GSM and CDMA carriers. The KEYone will also be sold by carriers, including Sprint, sometime this summer.
In Canada, pre-sales begin on May 18. The KEYone will launch on Bell, Bell MTS, Rogers, SaskTel, and TELUS Business starting that $199 CAD on a two-year term.
Meanwhile, folks in the UK can get a BlackBerry KEYone right now, but only if they visit the Selfridges store on Oxford Street in London. The KEYone is priced at £499. The phone will also be available at Carphone Warehouse stores on May 5, and UK networks will sell the KEYone at some point in the future, too.
The BlackBerry KEYone runs Android 7.1 on a 4.5-inch 1620x1080 display, and it’s got a 12-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus and dual LED flash as well as an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. Inside the KEYone lives a Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, and a 3505mAh battery with Quick Charge.
