We are used to what a typical smartphone looks like. However, some companies are trying to stand out and offer customers to purchase not quite ordinary smartphones, which in fact have striking differences from the touch devices that we see every day. These are the models we will show you now.

Blackberry KEYone

BlackBerry has long been known for its smartphones, although most devices are powered by BlackBerry OS..

The new BlackBerry KEYone model as an operating system received Android OS. But this, believe me, is far from the only feature of the device. As you can see, there is a physical QWERTY keyboard!
