Today TCL announced that it will be offering Blackberry Keyone – the original version – in Peru. We have two versions of the Keyone: The Black Edition that we reviewed last month and that recently arrived in the country, and the Silver version.
What is the main difference between the two?
The Black Edition has 64 GBs of Storage and 4 GBs of RAM, while the regular version, the silver version, has 32 GBs of Storage and 3 GBs of RAM. Both phones, however, have a microSD slot to expand memory.
Both phones have the same internal components:
- A Snapdragon 625 processor
- A 4.5: 3: 2 screen with a 1620 x 1080 resolution
- An excellent physical keyboard that also works to give us keyboard shortcuts
- A 12 megapixel camera on the back
- Android Nougat.
Personally, the color of the original Blackberry seems more attractive (excellent mix of silver and black) against the Black Edition.
This cut in RAM and Storage also implies a more comfortable price: the Blackberry KeyOne is available for S / .999 in Movistar's Plan Choose + of S / .199 (against S / .1,699 of the Black Edition launched with Claro in the plan of S / .189).
The KeyOne Black Edition was one of my favorite phones from last year; A solid smartphone that restored my faith in physical keyboards, despite the fact that the processor and RAM management could be better. It is an excellent alternative for those who extract a phone with a real keyboard.
