TCL made the first major announcement of this year’s Mobile World Congress by unveiling the BlackBerry KeyOne smartphone with Google Android software and a physical keyboard.
The BBC100-1 (not its final name) smartphone is said to have a 5.5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
If those rumors are true, it would mean that this phone has a less powerful processor than the KeyOne, but more RAM. Go figure.
As a touchscreen-only phone, it likely isn’t aimed at the same audience as the KeyOne anyway: folks are nostalgic for a time when smartphones had keyboards.
Other features are said to include a 3,000 mAh battery and dual SIM support. There’s no word on the price or release date yet.
