June 28th 2018 is seemingly becoming an important date for all BlackBerry KEYone owners across the world. The date will mark the inauguration of the Android 8.0 Oreo into the devices operating system. It will certainly be a Thursday to remember as the device will receive it’s first update in North America. A statistical chart posted by Rogers, a Canada-based charter stated that the BlackBerry KEYone will have a wifi-enabled calling facility which is a good news to the KEYone users south of border as updates that are scheduled by Rogers often coincides with the updates slated for the device on U.S. carriers, also for unlocked versions of the device. The Blackberry KEYone got launched with Android 7.1, last year and the update to 8.0 Oreo will surely give it a new life. The upcoming device from BlackBerry, being Key2 that is set at a launch date of July 6 in Canada and a week later in the U.S. will have its nascent O.S. as Android 8.1.
The Picture-in-picture feature that allows a user to watch any video while still interacting with another app running behind is something that everyone’s waiting for. Notification dots appearing on the home screen’s app icons that alerts users to read the unread notifications is another star feature. The ugly emojis have been replaced with circular ones and notifications can now be snoozed! The Key2’s arrival has set up some deals on the KEYone. The $649 tagged handset of Key2 is a tad bit high for a mid-ranged mobile device and so the KEYone is still more affordable.
