BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition for the Business Savvy


Saudi Gazette report

TCL Communications launched the BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition earlier this year and is targeting the Middle Eastern and Asian market with the limited edition smartphone.

The all-new BlackBerry sports a new color and included a new dual-SIM support, catering to the needs of business travelers who travel frequently.

Apart from the change of color from black and silver, the all-new KEYone Bronze Edition has 4GB of memory and 64GB of internal storage, which is a boost from its predecessors.

The brand has kept its trademark keyboard for BlackBerry fans who prefer to physically type on their smartphones. Also, a unique aspect is its Smart Keyboard which includes features such as customizing key shortcuts to quickly access widgets and apps from the home screen. Composing a message or calling a favorite contact can be accessed with a press of a button. Each key has the option to have two shortcuts in either long or short presses.

The body and texture of the smartphone gives it a luxurious feel and classy appearance. The body is made of bronze aluminum frame combined with a soft grip black textured back. The smartphone is not particularly light, however. Its weight of 180 grams and hard body are designed to be durable for everyday use.

It’s run on the latest Android 7.1 Nougat and includes a processor with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625.

The 12MP camera is ready to take various shots or bursts, live filters, panorama view as well as 4K video. Photo capturing also has locker mode.

For convenience, the camera also has a business card detector.

The BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition is sold at SR2199 in Saudi Arabia.

The product is distributed by Axiom Telecom in the Middle East and online at
