The BlackBerry KEYone Lands in Turkey

Turkish BlackBerry fans can relax now as the KEYone is now available in Turkey. The version landing in Turkey is the original silver edition from BlackBerry Mobile.

The KEYone comes with 3GB RAM of memory and 32GB of free space for storage. The device is available through Vodafone and the price is 3499 LT which in US dollars its around $936. That’s surely not the cheapest we’ve seen it, but we can assume that taxes are high in Turkey.



The BlackBerry KEYone is the first smartphone released from the leading global smartphone manufacturer TCL Communication, under a new brand licensing agreement signed in December 2016 with BlackBerry Limited, and is now available for purchase in Turkey with Vodafone at the RRP of 3.499 TL.

“We are thrilled to announce the availability of our award-winning BlackBerry KEYone in Turkey with Vodafone”, said Francois Mahieu, Global Head of Sales for BlackBerry Mobile, “With this new Android-powered smartphone, we’ve built a highly desirable yet reliable, durable device with a reimagined keyboard that packs enough battery life to get you through a busy day”. “We are convinced this distinctly different smartphone is the perfect companion for today’s professional consumer” added Francois Mahieu.


BlackBerry KEYone pairs the best of BlackBerry’s software and security with TCL Communication’s commitment to delivering high-quality, reliable smartphones to customers around the world.
