The Black Edition eschews the silver accents of the regular KEYone in favor of an all-black exterior. It looks more impressive in person than it does in the image above, with the black giving the KEYone a more traditional BlackBerry aesthetic.
Other changes include a small bump from 3 GB to 4 GB of RAM, as well as another bump from 32 GB to 64 GB of internal storage.
Everything else about the Black Edition remains the same compared to the regular KEYone. That means the phone features a 4.5-inch 1620 x 1080 display, 12 MP main camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, a microSD card slot, and a 3,505 mAh battery.
The real star of the Black Edition, apart from the battery life, is its keyboard. The touch-sensitive frets between the four character rows use Android’s mouse framework so that you can scroll through webpages and apps. The keys themselves are great to type on and can be programmed to launch apps with a long-press.
