BlackBerry Mobile Launches BlackBerry KEYone in Singapore

BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition

BlackBerry KEYone is finally here in Singapore. Announced first back in September 2017, the device has finally hit shore here, with only the souped-up generation 2 here in Singapore – the Black Edition. For the most critical information, it will be going on official retail next week, starting from 16 October 2017 from the telcos and resellers.

    Did they mention if this will be eventually available to Singtel consumers? And if this batch of phones in Singapore also have the screen issue fixed (google “screen issue keyone”)?

      Hi Candy,

      You might have read about with the first generation KEYone (Silver). The second gen (Black) pretty much has this issue addressed (according to them). A lot of the cases though, was due to some user’s pressure on the device causing it to ‘pop’ out.

      With regards to availability from the telco’s, I am unable to comment on that, however, if past device sales were any indication, it would be unlikely for them to change their policy.

    Does it support dual sim?

      Hi James,

      No it does not. The local Singapore set is only single sim.
