Earlier today, BlackBerry Mobile introduced the BlackBerry KEY2
, and took one of last year's most underrated handsets to another level. While the phone
might not appeal to you smartphone snobs out there (and you know who you are), TCL used some TLC to craft a fabulous handset for the rest of us. The company learned some lessons after releasing the BlackBerry KEYone
last year, including that famous saying "RAM does matter." And it certainly matters if you're telling the world that this is a productivity beast. So the phone has 6GB of the stuff, twice the amount that was found in the original KEYone
Also doubling is the amount of internal storage, to 64GB. And there will be a variant carrying 128GB of native storage. BlackBerry Mobile also improved the keyboard, making the keys 20% larger. The fingerprint scanner remains in the space bar, a brilliant location for it.
One thing that everyone was afraid of happening, didn't. Despite rumors that there would be a smaller battery inside, TCL opted for the same 3500mAh cell used in the original model, and claims that the device can last as long as two days between charges; this is important because a long battery life was the main feature that got the KEYone noticed last year.
Now, with BlackBerry fans excited about the KEY2
, we have a number of official videos to show you including the commercial at the top of this article. Other clips include the official product video, a few clips with no sound, and the video that covers today's entire event.
