The successor to last year’s Blackberry’s flagship KeyOne, Blackberry Key2 has been launched in India by licensee Optiemus Infracom. Like the original KeyOne, the latest Key2 has a conventional physical keyboard and runs on Google’s Android OS. What’s new here is the dual camera setup at the back. It is the first phone from Blackberry to feature a rear dual camera setup.
The hardware powering the Key2 is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 processor. This is definitely not the fastest chip available on the market today, but the company said it is a major leap from the Snapdragon 625 that powered the KeyOne. It sports a 4.5-inch display which has resolution of 1620 x 1080 pixels, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal memory, a 3,500mAh battery and Android 8.1 Oreo with BlackBerry apps preloaded on the device.
According to the company, the Key2 features an improved keyboard compared to its predecessor, as the keys are now 20% taller, have better spacing, and also now have a matte finish on top instead of the glossy plastic used on its predecessor. The frame of the phone is built out of Series 7 aluminum, and it has a textured back, which we have seen in past models.
Optiemus Infracom is manufacturing the BlackBerry Key2 for Indian customers locally at its manufacturing plant in Noida. If you want to buy one then let me tell you that this phone is priced at Rs 42,990 and will be available from July 31 on Amazon.
