BlackBerry KEY2 is official with refined design, dual-camera setup”

TCL unveiled the BlackBerry KEY2, which runs on Alphabet Inc's widely used Android operating system, amid tensions between Washington and Beijing over the sale of Chinese telecommunications equipment in the United States.

The BlackBerry Key2 is available for pre-order in the United Kingdom from June and will be shipped to retailers later this month at a cost of £579. Prices for the KEY2 start at $649 in the USA and are expected to go on sale later in June around the world. That screen is deliberately small because it has to be, packing in one of the features that makes the BlackBerry Key 2 a BlackBerry phone: a 35-key backlit QWERTY keyboard. The Blackberry Key2 comes with a 4.5 Inch Display screen, Having the aspect ratio of 3.2. same like its predecessors. Gone are the chrome bars which separated each row of the QWERTY layout, and bigger are the individual keys; they've been increased in size by 20%, which should allow for faster typing with fewer mistakes. The rear is now a textured diamond grip non-slip back.

The KEY2 also includes the enhanced security features that BlackBerry buyers expect, from its hardened operating system to its DTEK by BlackBerry application that constantly shows users the security status of their devices.

And with much the same focus, the original BlackBerry candy bar phone with a full small-button keyboard at the bottom is also returning, delivering refreshed and renewed icon once more, coming in the form of the recently announced Key 2. TCL has worked hard to fulfill every requirement of a modern smartphone with the legacy of Blackberry. It's still one of the most secure phones available in the market. It will be interesting to see how the customers are going to react this time.

Gartner's Tuong Nguyen said that despite TCL's marketing messages to enterprise buyers, he expects traction to be extremely limited for this phone model.

BlackBerry has always put great emphasis on privacy and security, and things are no different with the Key2. It has the dual rear camera of 12MP+12MP whereas front camera is 8MP. "This leads me to believe that consumer and enterprise users alike have other options and priorities".

"With the introduction of BlackBerry Key2, we've created a distinct smartphone that captures all the traits that have made BlackBerry smartphones iconic, while introducing new innovations and experiences that not only make this one of the best devices for security and privacy, but also the most advanced BlackBerry smartphone ever". "For anyone serious about security and who finds the need to make lengthy text responses on a phone, this thing is invaluable", said Enderle.

Another feature, Locker has been greatly improved on the KEY2 giving you better control of your content. Instead, the company said it would license the BlackBerry name to others to build BlackBerry phones while the company continued a transition into a software company.
