BlackBerry KEY2 Launched, Specifications, Price

BlackBerry KEY2 Launched, Specifications, Price

For one, the Key2 has a horizontally stacked dual-rear camera on back, while the original KEYone came with a single camera.

BlackBerry is keeping its physical keyboard, a long-standing feature that once saw it dominate the smartphone market.

"BlackBerry KEY2 is both slimmer and lighter than the BlackBerry KEYOne, has a larger 4.5-inch display that's almost edge-to-edge and has a larger physical keyboard", the Business Insider reported on Thursday.

Design-wise, it has a Series 7 aluminium frame that comes in Black and Silver and a back with a diamond pattern finish. So the "stepping-down" do a Snapdragon 660 is something which BlackBerry Mobile believes is sufficient enough to provide users with the power and processing capabilities they need. A new key called the Speed Key has been added to the BlackBerry Key2 which can help you navigate to any app on the phone faster. This storage can be expanded upon by pairing it with a microSD card of up to 256GB. That's also why the BlackBerry KEY2 is more expensive than last year's KEYone. Instead of a glossy exterior, the physical keyboard throws a matte-like feel so as to feel softer while typing. This flagship will keep the 3.5 mm audio jack and will have 3,500 mAh battery with QC 3.0.

Now BlackBerry is following it up with the Key2, with a bump in specifications I hope it means they have perfected this unique smartphone. It is likely that the Key2 variant that will be launched in India will include 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. BlackBerry's overall focus when it comes to software is making the phone security as robust as possible, so it's added stuff like a hardened OS and you can run a health check. There is also a Speed Key that enables users to generate custom functions and shortcuts to their favorite apps.

First Bond girl Eunice Gayson dies at 90
Eunice played the same Bond girl in the 1963 follow-up flick, " From Russia with Love ", as well. This concept was scrapped by director Guy Hamilton when he took the helm for 1964's Goldfinger .

BlackBerry's share of the global smartphone market has fallen to virtually zero from a peak of more than half a decade ago.

BlackBerry's priority on security also continues with its commitment to patch Android as soon as Google pushes out updates. BlackBerry's new smartphone will be the first phone in their portfolio to sport a dual camera setup.

However, if you prefer to use a virtual keyboard, then the button beside the symbol key will let you do so.

The BlackBerry KEY2 will begin shipping globally this month with the suggested retail price starting at 2,399 AED. As for connectivity options, the handset offers 4G LTE, dual-SIM slots, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and USB Type-C port. Battery is 3500mAh with QuickCharge 3.0 technology from Qualcomm, and the company is claiming a 2-day usage on the phone.
