Blackberry KEY3: more stylish and larger screen with a fewer bezels QWERTY keyboard

According to latest rumors and leaks, the TCL manufacturer preparing for the next generation smartphone BlackBerry KEY3 after launching BlackBerry KEYOne and KEY2. A smartphone with a physical keyboard gives you all the advantages of the latest version of Android, while being distinguished by an elegant classic design. The Science and Knowledge YouTube channel published first renders and video on the network of BlackBerry KEY3.


Recall, the BlackBerry Key2, the manufacturer again succeeded in the symbiosis of the traditional form factor of BlackBerry smartphones and the modern Android system.

At the same KEY2 in some respects surpassed its predecessor – BlackBerry KeyOne. The smartphone with the physical keyboard has become faster, lighter and more elegant, and also offers a dual camera with a zoom function.

However, it is far from ideal: the duration of battery life has decreased, and some functions, for example, inductive charging and protection from dust and water, are still missing. Advantages of the slim body large keys relatively lightweight dual camera with zoom function Disadvantages of battery life reduced charging time increased no protection against dust and water.

The most striking feature will be the new BlackBerry KEY3 design, which looks much more reserved than the KEY2. If the previous model was distinguished by the nostalgic charm of the 90’s, primarily thanks to the chrome elements on the keyboard and the black shiny plastic panels, the BlackBerry KEY3 will have a clear rectangular shape and matte finish of the aluminum frame (black or silver), which will make the design of the smartphone more relevant and modern.

The rear panel will be rubberized, due to which fingerprints are barely noticeable, and the smartphone rests securely in the hand. It is also good that now all the controls will be on the right side and they are easy to control the thumb as KEY2.


The remaining function keys on the keyboard will be identical to BlackBerry KEY2. The space bar will be used as a fingerprint sensor to unlock the device. The buttons themselves will have also touch sensitive, so you can use the keyboard and as a touchpad. From a practical point of view, it will be convenient when scrolling through web pages and entering text: you can confirm the choice of one of the words suggested by the system by lightly moving up. This time BlackBerry KEY3 will have fewer bezels and smaller QWERTY keyboard than KEY2 as you can see the images and video.

In addition to the updated design, TCL also will revise the hardware of the device. However, the concept itself has not changed: as in BlackBerry KEY2, KEY3 will use high-quality components of medium power. The internal memory will be 128/256 GBytes and is expanded with a MicroSD card up to 256 Gbytes (dedicated slot). The device will receive 6/8 GB of RAM. However, BlackBerry KKEY will still devoid of protection from dust and water and wireless charging.

BlackBerry KEY3 will work performed under Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, the current mid-range processor from Qualcomm. In principle, the processor class for the device does not matter. BlackBerry KEY3 will especially demonstrate that in terms of performance, the boundaries between different processors will be blurred, and in daily use, you will not notice the difference. The kind of smartphone you hold in your hands – high class or middle class – will be more noticeable in other areas, for example, the quality of photos. Premiere: the second dual camera BlackBerry.

Like many other manufacturers, TCL will use a vertical dual rear camera in BlackBerry KEY3, in which the second lens simulates a two-time zoom. The 19MP + 16MP dual camera will make pretty neat shots. The 13MP front camera will please you because we will get really clear photos than before. The new BlackBerry KEY3 will receive 5.5 inches IPS LCD touchscreen, display navigation bar, resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and 16:9 aspect ratio screen.

  • TCL won’t make the big throw with the hardware already described several times. Too little performance for a completely too high price, what a pity.

    I’m a fan of BB devices, just because of the keyboard, which I also use on the Blackberry Passport.

    BB should have stayed with Blackbery.

  • The Key3, a high-end smartphone with medium power…. Why not a high-end power qualcomm 855 with amoled display. I want also a new BB passport with 5 inch amoled display and the best triple camera ever with 5x zoom with high-end performance in a gold and red color frame.

    • completely agree! people that buy blackberries do not buy it because its cheap! buy it because we love it! bigger faster processor, better camera, bigger battery, wireless charging etc! give us the lot!! give us the best!

  • They said it will be launched by Q2 of 2019….but it’s already Q3 of 2019. When is the exact release date? Thank you

    • concordo…
      acho excelente ideia o ecran com 5,5″
      mantendo todas as características do Key 2..
      só lamento que tenham dininuido o teclado!! assim poderá tornar-se difícil de escrever, erro que já tinha sido resolvido devido ao pequeno teclado do KeyOne… e agora diminuem o teclado vão voltar a cometer o mesmo erro!!!!
      deveriam ter mantido a porpoção do teclado do Key 2
      e a melhorar, era adicionar setas e tecla CTRL .

  • adorei a ideia de um novo Key 3 , mantendo todas as características do Key 2..
    acho excelente o ecran com 5,5″ , era um dos defeitos que colocava no key 2 só ter 4,5″!!

    desgosto e lamento que tenham dininuido o teclado do key 3!!
    assim poderá tornar-se difícil de escrever, erro que já tinha sido cometido no KeyOne devido ao pequeno teclado do KeyOne…
    e agora diminuem o teclado vão voltar a cometer o mesmo erro!!!!
    deveriam ter mantido o tamanho e a porpoção do teclado do Key 2
    e para melhorar este, bastava adicionar as teclas de Setas e tecla CTRL para usar mais facilmente as funções Copy e Paste atraves do atalho CTRL + C / V / X .

    e se o preço já é elevado, que coloquem realmente um processador rápido, no minimo o Snapdragon 835, pois queremos pagar e ficar bem servidos.
