In anticipation for the release of the Keychron Q1 keyboard, the company is running a rather interesting contest. Between now until 23 August, you can design a badge for the Q1 and stand a chance to win the badge you’ve designed, along with a €50 store voucher to be used on Keychron’s online store.
This contest is currently running on Keychron’s Discord server, where files for the Q1’s badge are available for folks to work on their own design. You have to submit your entry in the server itself, and if your badge design receives the most votes, Keychron will give you the badge and the aforementioned €50 store voucher.
To recap, the Q1 is a feature-packed 75% keyboard. It features a gasket mounting system, a full CNC aluminium case, an aluminium plate, a hotswap PCB with south-facing LEDs, and support for screw-in stabilisers. It’s worth noting that these features are typically only found on enthusiast-level keyboards.
The Keychron Q1 will be available for pre-order on 24 August right here at 9PM for us here in Malaysia with a $149 (about RM630) starting price. Shipping for the fully assembled model will begin a week after pre-orders are open, and it is expected to be completed by 15 September.
As for the barebone kit of the Q1, it will start shipping to customers between 15 to 30 September 2021.
Again, if you’re interested to win a badge for the Keychron Q1 – along with a €50 store voucher – head on to Keychron’s Discord server to submit your entry; the contest will end on 23 August. We will also be reviewing the Q1 come 24 August, so stay tuned for that!
