Recently, Keychron has taken the format of soliciting buyers on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter before the official release of new models.
The Keychron K8 Pro, contracted on March 15, 2022, was also successfully sold in Japan.
The author is focusing on the sales schedule for the Keychron K6 Pro, whose crowdfunding recently closed.
This article will provide an estimated timeline for the official domestic sales of the Keychron K6 Pro.

Release date for Keychron K6 Pro during 2023?
First, let’s check the sales schedule of the Keychron K8 Pro, which recently completed domestic sales in Japan, after the crowdfunding ends, in order to reference the domestic sales schedule of the Keychron K6 Pro.
Based on this, we will predict a release date for the Keychron K6 Pro.
- September 2, 2022｜Crowdfunding Ends ( Confirmed )
- Early October 2022｜Arrival of crowd-funded products ( Confirmation of schedule to be sent in October )
- October 2022｜Start of general sales on keychron.com (Pre-orders will be shipped after October)
- January 2023｜Start of sales in Japan
Thus, based on the sales schedule of the Keychron K8 Pro official sales on the official website were expected to begin in October 2022, and official sales in Japan were expected to begin around January 2023. The official sales of the Keychron K8 Pro were expected to be around October 2022 on the official website.
However, rather than being announced in January, the Japanese-language model went on sale on the official website on March 10, 2023.
Perhaps it will not be released in Japan.
If you can’t wait, consider PreOrder.
Many of my regular keyboards have a ” 65% layout ” and the Keychron K6 is very useful as an on-the-go input device.
Compared to the NuPhy®︎ Halo65, which I use as my main machine, the NuPhy®︎ Halo65 is lighter and more portable, and I like it very much.
Keychron K6 has the disadvantage of a plastic body, which makes it difficult to achieve the “dead” keystroke feel of Halo65 or Keychron Q2, and it has a high-pitched sound.
However, carrying the heavy Halo65 and Keychron Q2 is a bit of a challenge…
I have inserted a homemade silicon pad to make it quieter, but it is not that effective.
What I expect from the Keychron K6 Pro is this thoroughly silent mechanism rather than the keymap customization feature.
Probably, the key feel will be on a different level from that of the unmarked K6.
PreOrder is currently available on the official website, so those who want it as soon as possible should consider it.
If you don’t have to carry it with you, consider the NuPhy Halo65!
