On November 7, 2023, Keychron updated its official X (formerly Twitter) to announce the launch of the new Keychron V1 Max.
The Keychron V1 Max is the middle class in the keyboard lineup, with an updated wireless connectivity and mounting system compared to the previous V1, in addition to the popular 75% layout.

In particular, the use of gasket mounts and abundant sound-absorbing materials have brought the Q series up to the level of the high-end Q series in terms of key feel.
On the other hand, the use of ABS plastic for the body has succeeded in reducing costs, and it can be said that the full assembly kit is available at a low price of $94.00 and the barebone kit at $74.00.
The only coloring is carbon black, and the new Gateron Jupiter series is used for the keyswitches.
