Everyone wants a tactile keyboard, but not the bulkiness of them because we want a keyboard that can type comfortably for hours and fit aesthetically on our desks. As creators, we have enough experience and ambition to make this real.
A conventional mechanical switch is known for its tactile response, allowing you to type with desirable feedback.
With the increasing desire for an ultra-slim mechanical keyboard, our tech team spent over a year of effort to design our homemade low-profile optical switch, and further iterated the switch and housing structure on the Keychron K7 to make it up to 40% slimmer than conventional switches while still providing an impeccable and consistent typing experience.
The K7’s low-profile switches are even slimmer than the size of a US quarter with a height of 0.66 inches (17mm) on the front side and 0.86 inches (22mm) on the backside.
The Keychron K7 is one of the major breakthroughs made on our low-profile keyboard line-up with its 65% compact layout. Not to mention, it's the first-ever hot-swappable low-profile Gateron mechanical keyboard on the market.
