Typing in Russian

The Russian keyboard and language supports word prediction and the flick feature, which allows you to flick word suggestions up onto the screen (if you have this feature turned on).
To access more Cyrillic characters on the Russian keyboard layout, you can use one of the following methods:
  • To type an uppercase character, you can press The shift key, and then press a letter.
  • Alternate characters are available for A, I, L, N, and Z. To type an alternate character, you can double-press the primary character.
  • To type an accented version of a character, you can press and hold the primary character, and then select the accented character.
If your device has a physical keyboard, the following image shows how the Russian characters map to the physical keys:
