BlackBerry senior vice president Alex Thurber said: "We want to congratulate TCL Communication on the launch of KEYone".
According to TCL, the KeyOne "is intentionally created to offer the most secure Android smartphone experience possible", as the firm remains keen to push the smartphone towards business customers.
TCL scored new brand-licensing deal in December with BlackBerry Ltd., which now focuses on making the security software that was another key factor underpinning the Canadian company's phenomenal success in the pre-smartphone era.
Starting with the design, BlackBerry went with a pretty minimal but cluttery look, if you will, as the combination of sensors and the physical keyboard make the front look busy while the rear looks like your typical BB-branded handset.
In terms of specifications, the device sports a 4.5-inch full-HD IPS display, with a 1620x1080 pixels resolution and an aspect ratio of 3:2.
The KEYone also boasts a textured back cover, which TCL promises will improve your grip on the device. Well, BlackBerry confirmed that the phone "will sell at or under €599 EUR/£499 GBP/$549 Dollars once it becomes available in April". Even the keyboard can be used like a laptop trackpads for scrolling through the web pages or moving to the next photo in the gallery.

It also comes loaded with BlackBerry Hub - an app that consolidates all messages, texts and emails into one easy-to-access folder. 3GB of RAM is included, along with 32GB of storage; there's also a microSD slot to expand that.
BlackBerry KeyOne comes with a 3505 mAh battery which according to BlackBerry lasts 24 hours. BlackBerry claims you can get to 50 per cent in 36 minutes.
The phone also features a fingerprint scanner but no water resistance, which is a disappointment because this feature has come to be expected on premium-tier smartphones.
The KEYone will use a 12MP rear camera with the industry leading Sony IMX378 camera sensor. The front facing camera features 8-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling. On the left edge is the BlackBerry Convenience Key that can be customized for different operations. This is an eye-popping sum considering you can get other Snapdragon 625 devices for under £200.
Connectivity options include 4G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, NFC, 3.5mm audio jack and USB Type-C port. It comes with an iconic physical keyboard and will be available beginning April 2017 in select markets. As of now, there is no information whether the device will be coming to India or not.
