himutatsu, 28 Feb 2017It is quite possible that the release date will be an April fool for blackberry. They set the ... moreThe only fools are John Chen, Blackberry CEO, for his horrible to market strategy, and the people who pay full price for this phone. Wait about 8 weeks. The price of this phone will drop like a stone in water.
consumersmartphone, 11 Mar 2017It premium by brand name, design and built material. How iPhone 7 label as premium phone? Think!Haha - I believe you should look in the mirror when you say that.
Look at the performance of the iphone and the CPU they put in their phones over the years. They justify the price through their performance, engineering and proprietary OS.
As I pointed out before in another comment, it's a big assumption that the quality of a Blackberry TCL phone will be good.
Blackberry is not Apple. THINK!

You can't say it's for the quality because that's an unknown. Saying otherwise is to make a BIG assumption, since this is the first Blackberry phone made by this Chinese company under the Blackberry license.
The physical QWERTY keyboard phones are a niche market and there isn't enough of it to grow a company, let alone sustain it.

The probability of an BOS 10.x phone being released is becoming slimmer and slimmer. He fired almost all the BOS developers. Because there are no new phones and the BOS 10.x market share is getting smaller and smaller, the 3rd party developers are leaving the platform.
The only way I see it possibly being revived is if a third party manufacturer comes up with a licensing deal with Blackberry. Unlikely (read again, John Chen has no vision). I don't expect to see another BOS 10.x phone or for that matter, any Blackberry phone with true flagship specs under Chen's watch.

Great phone. Disappointed with high pricing. Wish it has dual sim too.... Other then that looks perfect. I hope the shops will stock it....
Blackberry: WE ARE BEGGING YOU!!!! A dual-SIM phone damn it!!!!!
What would it hurt if BB manufactured KeyOne with Dual SIM?!
