Polyphony is the amount of different notes a keyboard can play at any one time, so for example monophonic keyboards (or those with a polyphony of 1) will only be able to play one note at a time (and no chords).
Multitimbrality is the amount of different sound sets a keyboard can play, so for example a 3-part multitimbral keyboard could simultaneously play a piano sound set, a string sound set and a drum kit sound set, but no more.
