The BlackBerry KEY2 LE includes a 4.5-inch Full-HD, 2.5D display and features a lightweight polycarbonate frame and a newly designed soft textured back that provides better in-hand grip to prevent drops. It comes with Android 8.1 Oreo operating system and includes support for popular features like the Google Assistant, Google Lens and Google Pay.

The BlackBerry KEY2 LE is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor and an efficient 3,000mAh battery that offers up to 22 hours of mixed use. It comes with 4GB of memory and in both 32GB and 64GB storage variants - with both offering expandable storage MicroSD support. In addition, the BlackBerry KEY2 LE features Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, enabling up to a 50 percent charge in about 36 minutes. The BlackBerry KEY2 LE also comes with a Boost mode charging and contextual battery reminder which will learn from your daily charging habits and calendar appointments to recommend when to charge so you have the battery power you need when you need it most.

The BlackBerry KEY2 LE boasts a redesigned keyboard with keys that are nearly 10 percent larger than those featured on the BlackBerry KEYone. The physical keyboard includes the Speed Key that enables shortcut access to a number of functions on your device at any time, without having to return to the home screen or search in an app folder to access the apps, contacts and functions you use and communicate with most. The Speed Key is complimented by 52 customizable shortcuts, so you can program each key to instantly bring up the contacts and apps you use most.

The KEY2 LE sports a dual rear camera (13MP+5MP) with Portrait mode. This is complemented by an 8MP front camera that comes with LCD flash and new capture modes like Wide Selfie (selfie panorama) and Face Beauty, which offers new selfie capture enhancements. You can also learn more about the world around you with Google Lens camera integration, which can help you quickly access more information on landmarks, buildings, books and more simply by pointing your camera at the object.

The BlackBerry KEY2 LE also includes the refreshed DTEK by BlackBerry application that brings new scanning features for proactive security checks to easily identify and mitigate potential security risks, such as unwanted data access by a downloaded application on your smartphone. And a commitment to monthly Android security updates means you'll always be protected from the latest threats.

Dual account management is built in to enable you to separately manage both personal and professional social media profiles on apps like Facebook and Instagram, and on the dual SIM variant of the BlackBerry KEY2 LE, you can also have dual WhatsApp and other accounts that require unique numbers. It also comes loaded with BlackBerry Hub which brings all your messages into one consolidated place - including emails, texts and messages from almost any social media account, including WhatsApp.
