On June 21, 2023, the words “Keychron Q9 Plus” popped up on Twitter.

This leak was true.

On June 24, 2023, Keychron announced the release of the Keychron Q9 Plus on its official Twitter page, and the product went on sale on June 27.

Prices were higher than originally expected, at $159.00 for the barebone model and $179.00 for the fully assembled model.

Compared to the regular Q9, the price increase is $10 each.

It was also surprising that the product pages were displayed alongside the existing Q9, rather than on a separate page.

Keychron Q9 Plus information leaked

In the web world, if you want to upload unpublished information on your site at the preparation stage, the standard practice is to set “noindex” and not link to the page from any page… but Keychron does not do that every time.

I was curious about the Keychron Q9 Plus and searched for it, and found it firmly inscribed in the list of user manuals on the official website.

Further searches revealed that even its contents had already been made public.

After the launch, “Plus” was added to the Keychron Q9 product page.

Compare Keychron Q9 and Q9 Plus

The difference between the two is the number of keyswitches in the bottom row.

Compared to the regular Q9, the Q9 Plus has more keys.

Perhaps the most distinctive feature is the split space bar.

This increases the number of keyswitches to the left of the space bar by one, bringing the total to four.

For the 40% keyboard, the arrangement is such that the top row of the 60% keyboard is omitted, and it is customary to move layers to compensate for the frequently used top row of input.

In addition, 40% keyboard enthusiasts often assign “Enter” or “BS” next to the space bar, and many of them may have honestly had the impression that the regular Q9 was “hard to use” because it has only one space bar.

Personally, I had put off purchasing Q9 because of the following three points: 1) it is not a split space bar, 2) the number of keys in the bottom row is too many, and 3) the arrow keys are not separated. If 1) is solved, it may improve usability very much.

As an aside, Yamada53AN solved this problem.

Summary|Keychron Q9 Plus is a great introduction to 40% keyboards

This is all we have to tell you about Keychron Q9 plus.

The world of 40% keyboards is very deep, and many variations exist, with different key switches omitted depending on the number of keys in the top row.

Of these, the transition from 60% is easiest with respect to models with 14 keys on the top row, because fewer key switches are omitted.

If you are hesitant about the price of the Q9 Plus, which starts at $159.00, you may want to start with the Yamada53AN.
