This is a good news for Business users. BlackBerry is back with a new and much more affordable Key2 variant – the Key2 LE. It’s almost as if the company listened to the users’ and reviewers’ complaints about the price burden of the original Key2 and decided to give the world mostly the same device with slightly toned-down chipset to fit the budget. And it was nicely done.

Starting at just $399 for the standard version with 4GB/32GB memory configuration and $449 for the 64GB model, the Key2 LE brings along almost everything we liked so much about the original version, including the keyboard. It’s also the first BlackBerry smartphone since 2014 to come in a color that’s not silver or black. The Atomic color, for example, is just great.

Find below the full BlackBerry Key2LE specifications, features, availability and price.
