    In 2017, a rejuvenated BlackBerry – the brand now under the stewardship of TCL – released the BlackBerry KEYone. This unique handset has overperformed and rumours have been rife about a successor – codenamed Athena and recently confirmed as BlackBerry KEY2 – launching in 2018.

    Now the KEY2 has been officially unveiled in a launch event today. Those so inclined can pore over the specifications further down. If you know you’re already interested, then hit the link below and you can place an order with Clove Technology now!

    BlackBerry KEY2 – An Icon Reborn

    BlackBerry hit on a winning formula with the KEYone, so it made sense to keep the new KEY2 very similar. Very little has changed about the design, with just simple refinements to the casing and keyboard developed to enhance ergonomics.

    The QWERTY keyboard itself now has a matte finish and the keys themselves are larger and slightly less pronounced. This makes for a flatter profile and allows for more accurate positioning when using the built-in trackpad for cursor placement.

    Screen size remains the same, as do the physical dimensions, although the edges and corners have all been rounded off and softened. The new KEY2 is therefore much more comfortable to hold, plus it’s a good 12 grams lighter than the original.

    BlackBerry KEY2 is also Android Enterprise Recommended from the moment it’s been announced.
