Hands-on with Blackberry's new KEYone smartphone

Blackberry KeyOne

While the BlackBerry Priv had a slide-out keyboard, the BlackBerry KEYone trades in screen size for a keyboard right on the front.

The earlier launched TCL made Blackberry smartphones are just the rebranded variants of the Alcatel smartphones.

The BlackBerry KEYOne has finally been officially revealed at Mobile World Congress 2017. BlackBerry says the KEYone is the "perfect device, with no compromises".

Journey to Un'Goro features new 'Adapt' and 'Quest' mechanics
And the hand buffing and Jade styles of play in Mean Streets of Gadgetzan introduced new mechanics without a new keyword. Volcano will deal a total of 15 damage to all minions on the board, similar to a Paladin's Avenging Wrath spell.

KeyOne, previously codenamed Mercury, is targeted at those who prefer physical keyboards, as well as BlackBerry's security features.

The KeyOne comes with a 4.5-inch LCD display (resolution 1620 x 1080) and aspect ratio of 3:2 that would make browsing or reading an email a nice experience.

It runs on the latest Android 7.1 Nougat along with Blackberry Hub that brings all the Blackberry features into a single app. Unlike the models of the past, BlackBerry KEYone has been developed and manufactured by partner TCL. According to BlackBerry, the KEYone is the "perfect device, with no compromises". At least the KeyOne has an aluminum frame, which gets exposed on the sides of the device, while the back is a plastic soft touch material. This year it's coming out with the KEYOne, for the whopping price of £499. Thanks to Quick Charge 3.0, meanwhile, its 3,505 mAh should recharge faster than ever: the two companies claim a 50-percent charge should come in around 36 minutes, when used with a compatible USB Type-C charger.

Google's Self-Driving Firm Sues Uber For Stealing Technology And Trade Secrets
Waymo, which began as Google's self-driving project, unveiled the autonomous Chrysler Pacifica hybrid at last month's Detroit Auto Show.

Around back, the KEYone's features a 12-megapixel camera with a Sony IMX378 sensor and large 1.55µm pixels, which is similar to the camera on the Google Pixel. The front gets an 8-megapixel sensor with an 84-degree lens. It's called the BlackBerry KeyOne, and is being marketed as the most secure Android phone in the world. For example, you can long press the "i" button to launch Instagram, or the "f" key to open Facebook. That includes a host of apps, most notably the security-focused DTEK app for easily checking your device's security, and getting an easy overview as to which apps are getting far more access to your personal information than they reasonably should.

TCL Communication is now taking pre-orders for the device, which will become available from April 2017. It comes with 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via microSD.

There were no announcements about the RAM or the camera unit of the phone.

Google Accuses Uber Of Stealing Its Self-Driving Car Secrets
The paper reported the news late Friday, citing two unnamed Uber employees, as well as internal company documents. Meanwhile, Uber said it has taken the allegations seriously and would review the matter carefully.

For starters, it incorporates the beloved physical hardware keyboard. It also comes with support for flick typing.
