Keychron Q1 HE to finally be released, coming in crowdfunding on Dec 5, 2023?


On December 2, 2023, keyboard brand Keychron updated its official X to announce the release of the Keychron Q1 HE with magnetic keyswitches, whose release has been delayed.

The release date is set for December 5, 2023.

The Keychron Q1 HE was originally scheduled to be launched on the crowdfunding site KickStarter in October 2023, but the official launch date has been pushed back on the official website without notice.


The newly set deadline of “November” for release has been exceeded, but it is expected that the release is finally here.

As for keyboards with magnetic keyswitches, competition is intensifying with a series of releases mainly in the gaming field.

In addition to the very inexpensive M1 HE from Akko’s sister brand MONSGEEK, magnetic keyboards have been released by Darmoshark and Akko, and Elecom has also released a magnetic keyboard from a domestic manufacturer, and it must be said that Keychron is behind in the field of keyboards with magnetic keyswitches. Keychron has been lagging behind in the field of keyboards with magnetic keyswitches.

It is also noteworthy that Keychron is the only company that states that it will continue to support QMK in the same way as before, while it is controlled by its own software, such as Rapid Trigger and Dual Action.
