[Oops!] BlackBerry KeyOne (Mercury) Accidently Shows Up On Official Website With Specs

 

BlackBerry is very bad at keeping secrets. Today, BlackBerry leaks the BlackBerry KeyOne which is codenamed Mercury, on the official webpage which was live for hours before the company's event at MWC 2017 starts.

The BlackBerry KeyOne is the newest and most powerful 'Berry with a full QWERTY keyboard and the largest ever battery in a BlackBerry. Here are all the important features of the BlackBerry KeyOne:

  • Android 7.1 Nougat on board
  • 4.5-inch scratch-resistant, 1620 x 1080-pixel display, 3:2 ratio
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Octa-core chip
  • 3GB RAM, 32GB on-board storage
  • Dimensions of 149.3 x 72.5 x 9.4mm, 180g weight
  • Smart QWERTY keyboard
  • 12MP rear camera (Sony IMX378 sensor) with 4K video at 30 fps, f/2.0 lens
  • 8MP fixed-focus front cam, 1080p video
  • 3,505 mAh battery, 50% charge in 36 minutes
  • USB Type-C
As with any BlackBerry, the focus here is on the full QWERTY keyboard with customizable actions to each key and the ability to swipe on the keys, as well as on the full suite of security features and BlackBerry messaging services.

The phone has a nice design too, with a soft touch back material, an all-day battery life and the latest version of Android, 7.1 Nougat on board. The main 12-megapixel camera also features the excellent Sony IMX378 sensor, the same one as in the Google Pixel, which is currently one of the best camera phones out there.

Note : NO SUPPORT FOR VERIZON AND SPRINT 4G LTE BANDS


Interestingly, the North American (U.S.) version of the BlackBerry KeyOne does not support all of the essential 4G LTE bands required by Verizon Wireless and Sprint, so it will likely only work with AT&T and T-Mobile. Here is the full list of 4G LTE bands supported by the U.S. bound version of the KeyOne: bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 17, 19, 20, 28, 29, 30.
