In addition, BlackBerry will start selling a new Bronze Edition Keyone later on in this quarter.

- It wasn't that long ago that the BlackBerry brand seemed stagnant, but devices like the KEYone and the more recent Motion seem to have gotten some people feeling the faith once more. Starting January 12th, you'll be able to order the Snapdragon 625-powered Motion from Amazon or Best Buy here in America for $449.

Last year's BlackBerry KEYone, which launched at MWC 2017, was an attempt to merge BlackBerry's security and enterprise strengths with the flexibility and popularity of Android. BlackBerry KEYone Bronze Edition will feature dual-SIM support and matte bronze finish.

Like the Black Edition of the keyboard-toting handset, the Bronze Edition comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, up from the 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage on the standard KeyOne.
