The BlackBerry Key2 is officially available in Singapore today

The BlackBerry Key2 is officially available in Singapore today. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and sports BlackBerry's signature physical keyboard and security and privacy enhancements. It is also the first BlackBerry smartphone to feature a dual rear camera setup.

The phone has a 4.5-inch, 1,620 x 1,080 pixels resolution (~434ppi) IPS LCD display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. It has dual SIM support, 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, and a microSD memory slot. The phone also features a new Speed Key function that works as a universal shortcut key, making it possible to instantly access your most frequently used apps, contacts and functions. On the rear, a 12-megapixel f/1.8 main camera is paired with a 12-megapixel f/2.6 secondary camera with 2x optical zoom.

The BlackBerry Key2 is available in black or silver from M1, StarHub, Lazada.sg and authorized BlackBerry retailers at a recommended retail price of S$899. 

“Although there are many different smartphones for consumers to choose from today, most tend to offer very similar experiences without much distinction from one to the next,” said Alain Lejeune, Senior Vice President, TCL Communication & President, BlackBerry Mobile. “With the introduction of BlackBerry KEY2, we’ve created a distinct smartphone that captures all the traits that have made BlackBerry smartphones iconic, while introducing new innovations and experiences that not only make this one of the best devices for security and privacy, but also the most advanced BlackBerry smartphone ever.”
