The smartphone is available exclusively via Amazon India.

Blackberry recently launched BlackBerry KEYone Limited Edition Black in India at Rs 39,990. Now the smartphone is available for purchase exclusively on Amazon India.

The smartphone was first announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017. The major highlight of the device is the Smart Keyboard, which has a fingerprint sensor on the spacebar and a capacitive touch on the entire keyboard for scrolling.

To recall, the BlackBerry KEYone will be the last smartphone designed by the company itself.

Optiemus will also manufacture, design and sell future handsets neighbouring countries including Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh as well.
