BLACKBERRY’S LATEST SMARTPHONE WANTS TO GET PHYSICAL, AND WE’RE KIND OF INTO IT
$799, blackberry.com, available winter 2017 SCREEN
At just 4.5 inches, the KEYone’s screen is almost as retro as the keyboard. The 1620x1080 resolution (434PPI) is nothing to shout out about either, but at least it’s all in safe hands, with Gorilla Glass 4 offering effective scratch and impact resistance.
While it won’t win any awards for style, the KEYone has a smart, purposeful look. The aluminum frame is outfitted with a soft-touch back, meaning you won’t have any hazardous flying phone moments when you whip it out in a rush.
If you like to spend time photographing your work space, you’ll be glad of the KEYone’s 12MP rear camera, powered by a capable Sony sensor. If suit-selfies are more your style, you also get an 8MP front camera and a wide-angle lens.
