Sprint’s BlackBerry KEYone is reportedly receiving a new software update and as the latest firmware continues to expand to all eligible units in the wild, prospective BlackBerry KEYone buyers from Europe and the UK are also in for a treat as the OEM is offering both the Silver and Black Edition variants at a discounted price in these regions. The discount can be applied through a coupon code at checkout, and by doing so buyers can save £50 or €80 off the original retail prices.
Starting off with the first part of today’s story, Sprint customers who happen to own the BlackBerry KEYone should now be able to acquire a new firmware labeled as version AAW378, which also appears to include the Android security patch for the month of March. As usual, it’s advised to apply the update over an active Wi-Fi connection and while the device is fully charged. As for smartphone users who reside across the pond and plan to acquire a BlackBerry KEYone, for starters, buyers from the UK can enter the code SPRING18-UK at checkout and reduce the retail price by £50 down to £449 and £499 for the Silver and Black Edition models, respectively. Similarly, prospective buyers from Europe can enter the code SPRING18-EU at checkout for a €80 discount and bring the smartphone’s price down to €519 for the Silver BlackBerry KEYone, and €569 for the beefier Black Edition variant.
As for readers who might be unfamiliar with the BlackBerry KEYone or more specifically, the differences between the Silver and Black Edition models, technically speaking both variants share the same hardware components with the exception of the Black Edition variant packing 4GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage, as opposed to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of memory. Additionally and as their monikers suggest, the standard model has a silver metallic frame complete with a shiny main camera housing, whereas the Black Edition employs a stealthier approach and delivers an all-black finish. In any case, both variants offer a physical keyboard which doubles as a trackpad, and it’s worth noting that either one of these two models can be purchased with one of three keyboard layouts including AZERTY, QWERTZ, and the more popular QWERTY format.
