One thing was omitted from the "review" was that this model is Dual SIMM capable. That is why there was a spec bump in the internal storage (32Gb to 64Gb), as you cannot add a micro sd card if you are taking advantage of the dual SIM feature.
Note that a teaser for IFA indicate that we might see a black version of the keyone on the global market as well.
We will have to wait to see If this would be TCL producing it in black too or the Optiemus version sold globally.

This this the best cellphone I have ever used.....it's got everything that I need for my work and play. To put it into perspective....I bought the S8+ after my Priv and then gifted it away just because I fell in love with the limited edition keyone...... I have been using Blackberrys and Galaxies all my life and this one is by far the best one I have ever used....
BlackBerry need to new smartphone same desing like BlackBerry Prive but faster with snapdragon 835 or Exynos chipset, and lower price

It's good to see BlackBerry coming out with good models. But I would like to draw your attention that some time ago, BlackBerry came out with very high end models which was running on their OS 10. which was their flagship OS. Very sadly after switching over to Android, they completely forgot about all the old cell phones that were in existence. For the past 2 years there has been no update in old OS . I think this is one of the worst decisions by BlackBerry not to support their existing model and leave them as it is. Please understand BlackBerry, no one forgets what have you done with millions of your old BlackBerry users. It will be very difficult to get the loyalties of the old BlackBerry users now......
Wonder when this limited edition will be available globally ? At least now with more RAM and storage this could be a crispy device.
Kd10, 15 Aug 2017That is a good looking phone, and the step up in RAM and storage is also very nice. It's rarely to read a positive comments on this website these days. Thank God!
pika2000, 15 Aug 2017Hope at least they actually glued the screen now.I am sure it fixed now, RIM quality is good, just slow adopt new OS is draw back since popular apps like whatsapp no longger support. Hopefully RIM will tune up, maybe try sailfish OS just like xperia, fix price, blackberry popular on most country without contract so price is sensitive
It should be called "Unlimited Edition"....get it? get it?...
because they still have a surplus of them because nobody buys it.
They used a cheap display! Look at the Google letters and the center of the Chrome icon. It looks purple while it should be blue!
