It has been a bit of time since we last heard about the BlackBerry KEY2 Android smartphone. But for anyone who might be in the market for a new handset with a large physical keyboard, there’s an additional option to choose from.
Beginning today, the BlackBerry KEY2 in a bold red color is now available to those interested in the United States. Fittingly, the handset is known as the BlackBerry KEY2 Red Edition, and there is a red color on the front, as well as along the sides. Meanwhile, around back, it’s a black, grooved surface. The bezels above and below the 4.5-inch display are black as well.
It’s worth noting that this is a GSM-based handset, so if you do buy it in the U.S. it will work with AT&T and T-Mobile. It also supports 4G LTE bands: 1, 12, 13, 14, 17, 2, 20, 28, 29, 3, 30, 38, 39, 4, 40, 41, 5, 66, 7, and 8. The Red Edition BlackBerry KEY2 also comes with a pair of matching red headphones in the box.
A quick refresher on specs: 4.5-inch touchscreen display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 6GB of RAM, and this limited-edition model comes with 128GB of built-in storage. The battery measures in at 3500mAh, a microSD card slot for expandable storage, and Quick Charge 3.0 support. BlackBerry also includes a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-C port for charging, and Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
The limited edition BlackBerry KEY2 in red is priced at $699. It’s available from Amazon and Best Buy in unlocked models. You can find links to both retailers below.
