Throughout the whole month, they’ve been keeping optimizing the keyboard production process. According to our test to the lighter color keyboard version which we have shown in the update at early December, we’ve shared our insights with the factory about how the keyboard can still improve, so the factory took time to improve for the mass production version.

Another news is about our brand name and domain change.

Thanks for showing support for the Keychron Keyboard! Due to our successful crowdfunding campaign, our team has decided to build upon the Keychron brand and officially register it in the US. However, due to some logistical reasons, as we were told, the name “Keytron” cannot be registered because it is too similar to another brand name in the same category.

 

Though this was misfortunate, after much discussion, we think it is a good thing we find out about this early on rather than later in the future. We still feel strongly about the Keytron name, we created a different name that will be unstoppable in the future. Our new name will be Keychron! We will soon switch our registered domain from Keytron.net to Keychron.com and will proceed with registering the name in the US. We are very excited about this new name and the journey Keychron will experience.

Due to the quick timing of changing the name, some backers might still get keyboards with the old Keychron logo. We apologize for this, however, the keyboard and all its features are still the same, but just the name will be different. Thanks for understanding everyone.


Thanks and happy New Year,
Keychron
