BlackBerry Keyone starts receiving the Oreo update today

Any Canadians with a BlackBerry Keyone? Check your phone, there should be an Oreo update waiting for you. The update started its rollout already – it was initially scheduled for the 13th, but there was a minor delay. Anyway, Keyones from other countries should join in before long.

The update brings the Android version to 8.0. The updated for phones on Rogers also includes Wi-Fi calling support.

The BlackBerry Keyone originally launched with 7.1 Nougat in early 2017. The Oreo update has been tested in a closed beta for a couple of weeks now. And if youre wondering why not 8.1?, we dont have an answer, but there are Keyones out there that do run 8.1 just not in North America.
