BlackBerry KEYone grabs the bronzer

BB KEYone Bronze EditionWe loved the BlackBerry KEYone and, judging by the awards, so did many others. TCL is looking to expand the BlackBerry portfolio in 2018 and has started by adding an all-new colour variant and dual SIM version of BlackBerry KEYone – Bronze Edition.

The BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition will be released in the UK and other select markets across Europe, Asia and the Middle East in Q1.

Following on from the original and Black Edition varients, the Bronze Edition looks pretty sweet. I’m not one for gold finishes but I am digging this.

BB KEYone Bronze EditionThis limited edition model features a matte bronze finish and adds dual-SIM compatibility for select global markets. This makes it ideal for corporate users or frequent travelers.

The BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition has 4GB of memory and 64GB of internal storage. Additionally, it comes packed with all the security, productivity and reliability features that have made BlackBerry KEYone such a distinctly different and popular smartphone.

BB KEYone Bronze EditionAlain Lejeune, Global General Manager for BlackBerry Mobile, said:

It has been less than one year since we formally introduced the world to our all-new BlackBerry smartphones and we’ve seen very strong renewed interest thanks to devices like BlackBerry KEYone and BlackBerry Motion. With new BlackBerry smartphones from TCL Communication now available in over 50 countries around the world, we have a solid foundation to continue building upon our portfolio in the new year. This means customers can expect to see at least two new BlackBerry smartphones from us later this year.”

Alex Thurber, SVP and GM of Mobility Solutions, BlackBerry, added:

BlackBerry phones are the world’s most secure Android smartphones because we’ve designed security into every possible piece of software. We are excited that TCL Communication has decided to bring the BlackBerry Motion with its outstanding battery life and its touchscreen interface to the United States, in addition to introducing a dual-SIM variant of the highly regarded BlackBerry KEYone for global markets. In 2018 we will be working closely with TCL Communication to roll out Android 8.0 Oreo™, including additional security and other features, to continue to expand the overall BlackBerry smartphone user experience.”
