BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition can be yours at RM361 off this coming Tuesday

Want an Android smartphone with a QWERTY Keyboard but don’t want to spend RM2,599 on the latest BlackBerry KEY2? You can pay RM811 less by picking up last year’s KEYone in Bronze during an online sale on Shopee.

At the moment, the BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition is priced at RM2,149 (with 0% GST) but you can get it for only RM1,788 on the official BlackBerry Store on Shopee. The sale will start on Tuesday, 7th August at 9AM.

To recap, the BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition features a 4.5″ 1620×1080 resolution display and it runs on a frugal Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. Similar to the Black Edition, this KEYone comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage which is expandable via microSD.

For imaging, it gets a 12MP main camera that can shoot 4K videos while the front gets an 8MP selfie camera. Powering the KEYone is a 3,505mAh battery which supports Quick Charge 3.0 charging via USB-C.

According to Brightstar, these latest batch of KEYone Bronze Edition units support dual-SIM, which is great news for those who use multiple SIM cards. The BlackBerry KEYone was launched with Android 7.1 Nougat but it’s upgradeable to Android 8.1 Oreo.
