TCL announces the BlackBerry KEY2 Red Edition

TCL Communications, who currently makes phones under the BlackBerry brand, has announced the Red Edition of the BlackBerry KEY2. As the name makes plain, this is exactly like the BlackBerry KEY2, but in a bright red color.

That means you get the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a 3,500 mAh battery. You'll find the signature physical keyboard underneath the display with all the same features. Sadly, the phone is still shipping with Android 8.1 Oreo, and there's no ETA on an update for Android Pie.

The red color here is borrowed from the cheaper BlackBerry KEY2 LE, but that one was made out of plastic. Here you keep the same aluminum body, just in an eye-catching red color. The keys and the back of the phone are still black, of course.

BlackBerry is significantly bumping up the price for the BlackBerry KEY2 Red Edition. While the original started at $649, this model goes up to $749/€779/£699. It'll be available in many regions, but those in Europe can pre-order it right now from the BlackBerry Mobile online store.
