Last year BlackBerry announced the successor of the original KEY phone. The KEY2 was the mid-range phone with touch panel and QWERTY keyboard below it. Being almost a year older the device isn't much attractive at this price tag. As per the latest info the company is now gearing to announce a new Red color variant to attract the European buyers.
Last year KEY2 LE Atomic Red variant was introduced, the KEY2 is also expected to have the similar color finish. At the moment you can grab KEY2 only in two colors including Silver and Black. It would be interesting to see how BlackBerry fans react to the new color variant of KEY2. The chances are high the KEY2 new Red variant could be announced for other markets as well.
In terms of specs, the KEY2 is featuring a 4.5-inches IPS LCD display with Full HD screen resolution of 1080 x 1620 pixels. The display aspect ratio is 3:2. The fingerprint scanner is embedded below the Spacebar on the front-facing side. Under the hood, the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 chipset is powering the phone with max clocking at 2.2Ghz. The Adreno 512 is taking care of graphics.
The Octa-core chipset is accompanied with 6GB RAM and built-in native storage is 128GB. On the rear side, you will get dual snappers of 12MP whereas the selfie snapper on the front is 8MP. For connectivity, the device comes with Bluetooth 5.0 and USB-C port. A 3,500mAH battery is on board to keep its lights on.
