BlackBerry Key2 Announced with Snapdragon 660 & 6GB of RAM for £579

As for the optics, the BlackBerry KEY2 comes with a dual camera module on the rear panel comprising a pair of 12MP shooters accompanied by a dual tone LED flash.

One of the possible design features of the BlackBerry KEY2 indicates that its maker, TCL, is devoted to the appearance that the predecessor, the KEYone, had.

In terms of build, the BlackBerry KEY2 features a Series 7 aluminium frame for extra durability along with a textured "diamond grip" back that prevents the phone from slipping off your hands by providing a better grip. "Upfront, they have kept the same 4.5" 3:2 display that pushes 1620×1080 pixels resolution. Under its hood, the device makes use of a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC paired with Adreno 512 GPU. The storage can be expanded up to 2TB with a microSD card. Take the display for instance; nowadays the common understanding is that a new and so-called premium phone must have more display real estate than it did past year.

It holds the same square shape, all sharp, dark angles, and does not give up on its physical keyboard. It consists of a 12MP f/1.8 main shooter and a secondary 12MP f/2.6 camera that offers 2X Optical zoom and portrait bokeh effects. For security, BlackBerry KEY2 comes preloaded with DTEK™ by BlackBerry application that removes the complexity of security by providing an "at a glance" security meter. This new button functions as a shortcut key for a number of functions on the handset.

"Although there are many different smartphones for consumers to choose from today, most tend to offer very similar experiences without much distinction from one to the next", he said.
