marketing blurb:

History of Keychron

Keychron is a keyboard manufacturer that appeared in 2018 when the low-profile Keytron mechanical keyboard (later renamed the Keychron K1) was introduced as a Kickstarter project. As of May 2020, they have expanded to add full-height mechanical keyboards to their product line, as well as a multifunction USB hub and accessories like palm rests and alternate keycaps.

Keychron's keyboards are designed to work well with MacOS systems, featuring Command (⌘) and Option (⌥) keys as standard keycaps, though the keyboards are also compatible with iOS, PC, and Android, and are shipped with some PC-style alternate keycaps if needed. They have a function key row (or layer, in the case of the smaller K6) that matches the current standard for MacOS media keys, and dedicated keys for taking screenshots and summoning Siri or another search engine. The keyboards can be used either as wired USB Type-C peripherals or use Bluetooth to connect to up to three devices. They also feature backlit keys, with either white or RGB LEDs available.
