The BlackBerry KEY2 is now on sale from Amazon Germany, with the 128GB Black Dual-SIM model priced at €599 EUR (equivalent to $630 USD). That is a discount of €100 EUR ($116 USD) or 14% from the phone's usual price of €599 EUR. The 64GB Single-SIM model in Black and Silver are both priced at €569 EUR (equivalent to $659 USD) for an €80 EUR ($93 USD) discount. That works out to a 12% savings.
It is possible that a similar discount could make its way to the U.S., especially with the holiday shopping season set to begin soon. For now, the 64GB BlackBerry Key2 is available for $649.99 from Best Buy and Target, compatible with GSM carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile. The 128GB model is not sold in the U.S.
To refresh your memory, the KEY2 features a 4.5-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1620. The Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform is under the hood along with 6GB of RAM. A dual camera setup (12MP + 12 MP) is on back with an 8MP front-facing selfie snapper. Keeping the lights on is a 3500mAh battery, providing what BlackBerry calls "up to 2-day battery life." Android 8.1 Oreo is pre-installed.
The KEY2 is equipped with a physical QWERTY keyboard that contains a fingerprint sensor embedded in the Space Key. A Speed Key allows the user to set up to 52 shortcuts, allowing for quick multi-tasking between apps.
