HEAR OUT BLACKBERRY...No one give a damn about your brand to keep it highly priced. You will wind-up if price is not similar to other brands. What differenciates your phone from existing midrange slab phones? NOTHING. Ther is no reason to buy the phone. I was expecting a slide out landscape keyboard, that may differentiate from market phones. Die soon.
A key-less keyone ?
Thanks but no thanks.
I think this will be for a VERY limited user segment, as they enter a very highly populated field of devices with their highly priced device, with no hardware benefits over its many competitors.
The ONLY groups I can see that will be interested in this, are the businesses that uses BB's software suites, the extreme hardcore brand followers, and the few users that find that the BB security improvements over a standard Android is enough to make a difference.
Personally I got a Priv, and I'm glad the the Android is slightly security improved, but not enough to choose a BB device over another brand with more interesting hardware. (I choose the Priv for the Keyboard slider - and here they got no competition, except cases and Moto Z add-on)
the P2 has great battery life yes but the TCL made "Blackberry Keyone" used the same sensor as the Pixel and got brilliant results so this package will be very well rounded I hope.
P2 was an extreme letdown in that department but thats usual for midrange sadly

I think it looks like a solid phone. However, the price is too high considering the; 32GB eMMC storage, the OmniVision camera, and QSD 625 SoC. They need to price it below US $399 to stay relevant, especially against the Moto G5S Plus, Moto X4, Xiaomi Mi A1 and the like.
Or maybe they should stick with the US $499 price bracket, but upped the specs. In particular, gone with a 64GB USF2.0 storage, the QSD 660 SoC, and a camera module such as the IMX 270. Then they would be competitive to the likes of the LG G6, OnePlus 5, Nokia 8, and Xiaomi Mi 6.
punmeisterone, 09 Oct 2017Like I said earlier, a Blackberry without the physical keyboard is NOT a Blackberry.Seeing a midrange spec + high price =is= BB
ImTheOne, 09 Oct 2017I think these BB phones are actually quite overpriced with mid range specs. The KeyONE sells f... moreAgree with you.
BB think its brand too valuable.
They really think they above any other brand.
They didn't realize nobody care about it anymore
Even in Indonesia, which is BB biggest market 10 years ago, nobody want to be seen using BB anymore. It could destroy a person image

Like I said earlier, a Blackberry without the physical keyboard is NOT a Blackberry.
I think these BB phones are actually quite overpriced with mid range specs. The KeyONE sells for 2000 riyals, which is flagship price range. Why should I buy this for 1700 when I can get a brand new G6/S7/XZ for less..
