BlackBerry, earlier called Research in Motion, is a Canadian smartphone-maker that made a name selling QWERTY devices, but is struggling to stay relevant in a world dominated by iOS and Android. After years of backing its own BB OS, the company has decided to make an Android smartphone in a bid to grab a small chunk of the smartphone pie it used to dominate. BlackBerry's latest mobile launch is the KEY2. The smartphone was launched in June 2018. The phone comes with a 4.50-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1620 pixels at a PPI of 434 pixels per inch.
The BlackBerry KEY2 is powered by 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the BlackBerry KEY2 packs a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
The BlackBerry KEY2 runs Android 8.1 and is powered by a 3500mAh. It measures 151.40 x 71.80 x 8.50 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 168.00 grams.
The BlackBerry KEY2 is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, FM, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone include Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope.
