TCL gave a Q1 2018 launch window for the Bronze Edition KEYone, but hasn't released pricing information.

"BlackBerry phones are the world's most secure Android smartphones because we've designed security into every possible piece of software", added Alex Thurber, SVP and GM of Mobility Solutions, BlackBerry.
