The BlackBerry KEY2 LE is a less-powerful version of the KEY 2 released a few months ago. We want to believe TCL is releasing this model as a way to woo those who can’t afford the KEY 2. A new render of the KEY2 LE has been leaked online and it shows all the sides of the device.
The BlackBerry KEY2 LE has the same form factor as its more powerful sibling. There is a full QWERTY keyboard below the screen and there are dual cameras on the rear. The phone has the fingerprint scanner baked into the space key and also has the new Speed Key from the BlackBerry KEY 2.
The top of the phone is home to a 3.5mm audio jack and a secondary microphone while the bottom houses a USB-C port flanked by grilles which hide the speaker and the primary microphone.
Just like the KEY 2, there is a convenience key and it sits below the volume rocker and the textured power button. The SIM tray is on the left of the phone. The textured back of the phone has a different design but nevertheless, it should prevent the phone from sliding off smooth surfaces and provide a comfortable grip when holding it.
The BlackBerry KEY2 LE will come with a 4.5-inch screen, a Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of storage. Its dual cameras are a 13MP sensor paired with a 5MP sensor. It will have a 3,000mAh battery and run Android 8.1 Oreo. TCL is expected to announce the phone at IFA Berlin on August 30.
