BlackBerry KEYone might launch on August 1st
BlackBerry KEYone the most anticipated BlackBerry of all time might be launching in India soon. The company sent invites for a product launch next Tuesday without duly mentioning the product name.
The tag line on the invite says, “Do, more differently”. Which is very similar to the BlackBerry KEYone tagline, making it evident it is the launch event of the KEYone in India.
In other terms, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 coupled with Adreno 506 GPU. The device is run by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage which is indeed expandable.
Almost everytime the camera is the most neglected part of a BB device but on the KEYone that case opposite. The device has a 12 MP Sony IMX 378 sensor for the primary camera, and a 8 MP front camera. The primary (rear) camera has the same sensor at that one of the Google Pixel. As a result, it is expected to be right up there with all other flagships.
The device’s global price is $549, but it is expected to launch at around ₹50,000 or more in India. That will put it in direct competition with the iPhone 7 and the Samsung Galaxy S8.
