TCL, maker of the Blackberry brand of Android smartphones has its presence registered at the CES 2018, and while the company didn’t wow us with any new products or even a follow-up for its flagship device, it come up with some non-ground breaking announcements: US availability for the full touchscreen BlackBerry Motion, and the unveiling of a bronze color for the KeyOne.
The company hinted that the Bronze colored KeyOne might be the last color variant of the KeyOne, just as it considers bringing in new products to the market later in the year. Speaking on its plans for the latter part of the year, Alain Lejeune, Global General Manager for BlackBerry Mobile confirmed that it will launch “at least two new phones” in 2018.
Back to the BlackBerry KeyOne Bronze Edition, the device more like the Black version released earlier in 2017 is mainly a new color variant of the KeyOne. Aside from bronze color accent, the Blackberry KeyOne Bronze edition has now ditched the microSD card on the SIM tray for Dual SIM slots. Design and other internal configuration remain the same including the iconic BlackBerry keyboard, a 4.5-inch 1620 x 1080 resolution display, 12 MP rear camera, Snapdragon 625, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage.
The KeyOne Bronze Edition will be available later in select markets across Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
