TCL have announced their latest BlackBerry-branded smartphone, the KEY2 LE.

“Today’s smartphones try to offer a one size fits all solution, but that is no longer realistic when we have a global marketplace as diverse as we have today,” said Alain Lejeune, Senior Vice President, TCL Communication & President, BlackBerry Mobile.

“But this is why we focus on making modern BlackBerry smartphones like KEY2 LE, to stand out and deliver a great experience for everyday communication, with access to all the features, connectivity and applications our customers expect.”

Like most modern smartphones, the KEY2 LE minimizes the bezels found in its predecessors. It also boasts a redesigned chassis for a more modern look and feel. That said, there's plenty of shared DNA here between this device and its predecessor, such as the Speed Key and a physical integrated keyboard.

In terms of specs, the BlackBerry KEY2 LE features a 4.5-inch display, Snapdragon 636 processor, dual-lens camera, 4GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB of storage with support for more via MicroSD.

The BlackBerry KEY2 LE will be available in Australia later this year, with pricing starting at $699 for the 64GB variant.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
