If anyone’s interested, the BlackBerry KEY2 Red Edition, first announced at the Mobile World Congress 2019, is now available in the U.S. The Red Edition, if you don’t already know, is pretty much the original introduced last year with a few tweaks, including the obvious red colorway treatment. This means you will be treated to the iconic BlackBerry physical keyboard, along with BlackBerry Limited’s best security and privacy enhancements.
The Red Edition sports an impact-resistant deep red Series 7 aluminum alloy frame, complemented by the black, textured diamond non-slip back and keys. Not going to lie. It actually looks pretty dope. But cosmetic isn’t the only thing the Red Edition has to offer. With it, you also get increased memory (128 GB ROM as opposed to the original’s 64), specialized headphones and new styling.
Other features include a 4.5-inch touch display with Corning Gorilla glass, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, 6 GB RAM, microSD support, a 3,500 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0, a dual 12MP main camera with optical superzoom, a 8 MP fixed focus front camera with selfie flash, and Android 8.1 that enable features like Google Lens, Google Pay and the recently announced Google Assistant profile in the Convenience Key.
