“World’s most secure Android smartphone”
Alongside being the handset to feature the world’s first embedded fingerprint sensor, the KEYone also takes another title – the world’s most secure Android smartphone. From a hardened operating system to BlackBerry Limited’s proprietary technique for establishing a hardware root of trust adding security keys to the processor, the BlackBerry KEYone is designed to offer the most secure Android smartphone experience possible. The KEYone is also preloaded with DTEK™ by BlackBerry, offering constant security monitoring and protection of your operating system and apps by letting you know when your privacy could be at risk and how you can take action to improve it. A quick glimpse lets you see the overall security rating for your device and provides simple access allowing you to easily improve your security status.
Beyond security, the KEYone provides access to the entire Google Play store with over one million apps, including the legendary BlackBerry Hub which brings all your messages into one consolidated place; including emails, texts and messages from any social media account. Another benefit of BlackBerry Hub, is the ability to manage multiple email accounts without switching between apps, with support for Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Outlook, Microsoft Exchange accounts, and many other IMAP and POP3 email providers. Keeping you powered, the KEYone has the largest battery ever found in a BlackBerry smartphone for 26 hours of mixed use and an astonishing 50% of battery from a charge of roughly 36 minutes. The KEYone includes a 12MP with a Sony camera sensor for crisp shots irrelevant of the lighting. The wide aperture lens with large 1.55μm pixels and dual-tone flash ensures your photos will have superior colour and clarity. Finally, the device includes an 8MP front camera with fixed focus, LCD Flash, and 84 degree wide angle lens.
