In Canada, the smartphone will be available for pre-orders starting May 18.
Truth be told, while the BlackBerry Classic was a solid device, it lacked in a lot of key areas.
Other UK networks will also carry the new device soon, although BlackBerry could not confirm which carriers, or when it would be available. We also know it will cost $549 whenever it launches. TCL, the company manufacturing the phone, says that Sprint will carry the device at an unspecified date this summer.
Speaking at the launch today, BlackBerry Mobile UK manager Johnathan Young said: "Selfridges, voted world's best department store three times consecutively have been a longtime supporter of BlackBerry".
Beneath its shell, the KEYone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm SnapDragon 625 processor clocked at 2.0 GHz, together with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash storage. Just the opposite, it prepping the release of another smartphone with a physical QWERTY keyboard.

President Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in a summit early April to negotiate cooperation between the two countries. On Tuesday, while visiting Tokyo , he called the North Korea regime "the most ominous threat" to the region.
The BlackBerry KEYone comes with a 4.5-inch IPS display with an odd 1620 x 1080 pixels resolution sporting a pixel density of 433 ppi and Gorilla Glass 4 protection.
"BlackBerry fans in Canada will be extremely excited to have the BlackBerry KeyOne available in their market", Alex Thurber, head of BlackBerry's mobility solutions unit, said in a statement.
It's all about the physical keyboard, which felt like a great throwback to the days before all-screen phones and on-screen keyboards.
The KeyOne (formerly referred to as Mercury), which made its official debut at Mobile World Congress in February, has a 4.5-inch screen and the familiar BlackBerry keyboard; it will be compatible with all major United States and Canadian carriers. It also features a 12MP rear camera (1.55um) with the Sony IMX378 sensor and an 8MP front-facing sensor. What's more, QuickCharge 3.0 technology means a 50% charge can be achieved in as little as 36 minutes.
Such a keyboard was once the signature feature of BlackBerry smartphones. The KeyOne runs Android 7.1 Nougat and will come with BlackBerry's suite of productivity apps.
