The BlackBerry Key 2 launched earlier this year, with a handful of improvements over the KeyOne, such as more RAM, dual camera and all that good stuff, but it also came with a price increase of $100, placing it at $649,99, which didn’t really make it a go-to phone for the more casual user.
A while after the debut, we got a whiff of an FCC listing that was similar in look to the Key 2, but was a mystery when it came to specs. Now, we finally got some answers and they come in the form of the BlackBerry Key 2 LE, which is, basically, the Key 2’s smaller brother.
Thanks to a user aptly named Anonymous Alligator, Android Police reportedly got their hands on an image and some specs of the Key 2 LE. The first thing you will notice is that the phone’s keyboard is more similar to the Key One, instead of the Key 2, and apparently, the device won’t have trackpad functionality like its predecessors.
As far as the specs go, the phone will run on the Snapdragon 636 and will come with 4GB RAM and a 32GB/64GB of storage. The dual rear cameras have a 13-megapixel sensor coupled with a 5-megapixel one and the phone sports a 3,000mAh battery.
No word on the pricing but we can expect it to run somewhere along the $500 tag.
BlackBerry has not, so far, made any official comments, but with this information in mind, we might expect to see this lite version of the BlackBerry Key 2 at the IFA Berlin this year.
