BlackBerry KEY2 LE

we are nasphones.com website and we coming to you from Berlin at Aoife, where blackberry has just showed us the new BlackBerry key2 Le, a light version of the key2 if you will .

this is the first time since 2014 with the BlackBerry passport at the time, that the company has released a device with actual color options outside of the safer black and silver options .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review

now that the brand has had some time to re-establish itself in the mobile space blackberry thought it to be about time to make its flagship key lineup of phones more accessible by introducing a lower entry cost .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review1

the BlackBerry KEY2 LE is very similar to the BlackBerry KEY2, the overall look is the same the placement of the keys and the camera and the logo layout on the back are all the same and the screen is also identical in size and resolution .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review2

what’s different are the materials used around the hardware, and the other difference is that the BlackBerry KEY2 LE has a different camera setup, it’s a 13 megapixel sensor paired with a 5 megapixel depth sensor .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review3

the first thing I noticed when I picked up the phone was how soft it felt, the texture on the back is different on both devices it’s not as deep and it feels much softer to the touch .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review4

the phone’s body is made of polycarbonate plastic instead of metal, so the device even feels a bit lighter as well the first thing you might notice is that the keyboard on the BlackBerry KEY2 LE is aesthetically similar to the keyboard from the key1 .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review5

it has these metal frets between the rows of keys instead of the key to s more straightforward design, I’m glad that these keys feel just as responsive and tactile as the ones from the BlackBerry KEY2 LE .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review6

this hardware comes in three different colors slate arguably boring but when held up to the light it’s like a darkish, grayish with a hint of blue, then there’s champagne, whose frame is a light gold color and my favorite option with one of the coolest names for a smart phone color atomic .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review7

the keys the bezel the back of the phone are all the same dark navy blue as the champagnes, but the frets between the keys and the frame are all red, which gives it a very interesting contrast and a sophisticated yet funky look .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review8

the same suite of apps and features from the key to are here, so you don’t get a watered-down firmware experience, there are a few new software features worth mentioning, firstly you can now use the convenience key as a Google assistant shortcut a single press will open Google assistant and double pressing it will open google lens .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review9

now this is an optional profile so if you do enable it you won’t be able to access the old convenience key menu, but you still have the flexibility of the 52 keyboard shortcuts as well as this speed key .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review10

the power center gets a minor update with the ability to now suggest when you should charge your phone taking your calendar events into consideration .

BlackBerry KEY2 LE Review11

so there are now do apps on the BlackBerry KEY2 LE, you can run two instances of some social media apps, like Instagram, Facebook Messenger, WeChat and whatsapp and BlackBerry says there are more apps coming later on .

there are three variants of the BlackBerry KEY2 LE, a base model with 32 gigabytes of storage, a 64 gigabyte version and a dual SIM version with 64 gigabytes of storage .

of course the version you’ll see in stores will depend on your market every variant comes with an octa-core Snapdragon 836 CPU and four gigabytes of RAM .

so it will be interesting to see if the BlackBerry KEY2 LE is noticeably slower than the BlackBerry KEY2 .
