Blackberry is ensuring there’s one phone with the company’s branding for most price points, to give users the flexibility. On Monday, Blackberry announced the Key 2 LE (Light Edition), the lighter version of the physical keyboard-touting Blackberry Key2, for India Rs 29,990. The phone was announced back in September at IFA conference in Berlin. The Blackberry Key2 Le borrows a lot of things from the more expensive Blackberry Key2. The phone is designed by TCL and manufactured in India by Optiemus Infracom, under the license agreement with Blackberry. In this case, the LE stands for ‘Light Edition’.
As the name implies, Blackberry Key2 LE features a Snapdragon 636 SoC medium-range system with 4 GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There is also 32GB of storage capacity, but not in India. Storage can also be expanded to 256 GB through a microSD card slot. This makes the Blackberry Key2 LE the most expensive smartphone to run mid-range chips. The additional fees you will pay are the powerful security features included in Key2 LE. It has a DTEK security application that provides real-time scanning of security features. There is a safe area in the devices that encrypts everything stored in the phone. In addition, the phone has a myriad of productivity enhancing features, such as the Blackberry Hub, providing a comprehensive store for all communications. Finally, the actual keyboard doubles the hub as a shortcut because all 26 scripts can be programmed to launch various applications and processes.
The design of the handset is very similar to Blackberry Key2. It has a similar QWERTY keyboard, but the keys are slightly smaller than Key2. The display is similar to the 4.5 “IPS LCD panel with the same rubber texture on the back. On the back, there is a 13 + 5 megapixel camera with an additional sensor as a depth sensor. The front is a self-timer 8-megapixel sensor. The camera is also integrated with Google Lens to create peach images.
