BlackBerry started selling the TCL-manufactured KEYOne in the United States several weeks ago. It has been selling the unlocked and off-contract variant of this handset so far. It was recently reported that Sprint might become the first carrier in the country to offer the handset to its customers. That has proven to be true as Sprint has now officially launched the BlackBerry KEYOne.
The BlackBerry KEYOne features a 4.5 inch 1650×1080 pixel resolution display with a Snapdragon 625 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. It also features a 12 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front camera as well as a 3,505mAh battery.
The most unique feature of this handset is its full QWERTY keyboard that has been a standard affair on most BlackBerry handsets. It’s also powered by the latest iteration of Android.
Sprint customers can purchase this handset from the carrier starting today for 18 equal monthly payments of $22 which equals to $528.
New Sprint customers will be eligible for the Unlimited Freedom plan which provides them with four lines that offer unlimited data alongside unlimited calls and texts for $22.50 per line, per month.
Interested customers can order the BlackBerry KEYOne from Sprint online or through its call center starting today. BlackBerry KEYOne will also be available from the carrier’s retail stores across the country later this month.
