Informations
The first prototypes have arrived and are fully functional; this will be an unlimited run of the board, and real-life photos of the boards will be available later.
Because we want to change the size of the board on a regular basis (the next board will be a 65% board), this will be time-limited, but if more specific information becomes available, I will update this post.

Edit1 on Q1:
We postponed the pre-order release date to the end of July, and the shipping date to late August to implement all changes.
Pre-Order will be available at the end of July. Shipment is set for late August to match all the feedback we got!

!!!PRICE ANNOUNCEMENT & CHANGE!!!
Barebone 149USD
Fully assembled with double shot ABS keycaps and switches 169USD

That's entirely my fault; I simply messed up the exchange rate and just put 150€ as 150USD. We've now agreed to reduce the price Keychron originally requested for the fully assembled from 179USD to 169USD bringing the fully assembled price closer to the original price I called out.
I'm really sorry for that and I know when people are angry about it but it was a honest mistake.

New Details:

* 8 Gaskets are pre installed, 8 extra gaskets will come for you to install on your own for your personal needs.
* Plates got updated to: Alu, PC, FR4
* Badges will be available in matching colors of the board.
* Switches will be pre lubed by Gateron.
* Doublshot ABS Keycaps
* PCB Stabs that are similar to GMK stabs.
* USB part of the board is separated from the normal pcb so it won’t be affected by the flex.
* Dark/Navy blue added as color
* Chips: Atmega32U4
* 2x 1.5u will be not available at launch, maybe later.
