BlackBerry has released it's latest flagship, the KEY2, the lighter and thinner version of it's predecessor, the KeyOne. Framed with Series 7 aluminum and featuring a diamond grip non-slip back, the 4.5" KEY2 display is also coated with Gorilla Glass 3 for a premium looking design that doesn't skimp on durability. Most notably, the KEY2 features a new take on the iconic BlackBerry keyboard. Claimed by BlackBerry to be their most 'intelligent keyboard ever', the new design a customisable BlackBerry convenience key or 'speed key' for you to choose a desired function (such as an app shortcut or action) that you wish to initiate quickly. This key is also usable as a mute key when on an active call.
Despite the smaller size, the KEY2 provides up to 2 days of battery life from just one charge, allowing you to go about your day without worrying about running out of juice. Not only has BlackBerry improved both the keyboard and the power, the KEY2 also takes on one of the latest smartphone trends, featuring the first dual camera on a BlackBerry. Sported by the HTC Desire 12+, iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, BlackBerry has ensured it's latest device is on par with the top flagships on the market. The Dual Camera also includes portrait mode and optical superzoom for greater control and image quality. Finally, BlackBerry has once again pulled out all the stops on security to ensure it keeps it's title for the 'most secure Android smartphone'. Highly recommended as a business device, the KEY2 features BlackBerry DTEK software that watches what apps are accessing– and gives you the chance to nip various unauthorized accesses in the bud — as well as giving an overall security rating. The KEY2 also features Locker Private Zone App + Firefox Focus Private Browser - allowing you to keep various apps, files and searching private. In your 'locker' you can drop apps, photos or videos inside securely and enable access via a password, PIN or your fingerprint.
