The BlackBerry KEYone is now available at Walmart.ca for $729.98 CAD.

TCL’s original announcement stated the unlocked variant was slated for a June, however in June TCL pushed the release date to “later this summer.” The delay was due to carrier demand said a TCL spokesperson in a statement.

The BlackBerry KEYone features a 4.5-inch 1080 x 1620 pixel display, a ‘Smart Keyboard’ that allows for 52 customizable shortcuts, and an embedded fingerprint sensor. Additionally the device includes an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 12-megapixel rear facing camera and 3,505 mAh battery.

Note to current owners of a locked KEYone, the CRTC announced all devices will be free to unlock starting in December.

Update: It seems that Walmart Canada jumped the gun a bit and put the wrong info and pictures into its website. The KEYone listing we previously posted now redirects to the DTEK60.

However, there is a listing with the correct $730 unlocked price tag, with the device now showing sold out. New inventory will be available the middle of August. ^IH
