They might not be known as RIM anymore but that doesn’t mean that BlackBerry isn’t around these days. While the company which once dominated the corporate world has now given up on hardware altogether, it’s partnered up with TCL to produce the BlackBerry KeyOne Smartphone — a device which can rightfully claim to be the most worthy heir to 2008’s BlackBerry Bold yet.

As its name implies, the new signature feature with this device is actually a hardware keyboard which is not only touch-sensitive but hides a fingerprint sensor in the space bar. This combination of tech allows it to intelligently change what each key does. For instance, you can have the “F” key set as a shortcut to open the Facebook app, the “G” key could open a Google Search, the “L” key could open up LinkedIn, and so forth. Other specs include a durable aluminum and Gorilla Glass 4 body, 4.5-inch screen, 12-megapixel, Snapdragon 625 processor, and a custom version of Android 7.1. More below.
