Early adopters of the BlackBerry Key2 are set to be tested, with a new Red variant of the device on the way that'll offer additional RAM and alongside crimson accents.
“We always appreciate the opportunity to respond to our customers when they ask for an exclusive device variant – which is why we offered the BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition – and now we can respond again with the BlackBerry KEY2 Red Edition which offers a fresh take on our award-winning BlackBerry KEY2 smartphone,” said Francois Mahieu, Global Managing Director for BlackBerry Mobile at TCL Communication.
“With added styling and increased memory, this limited edition BlackBerry-branded smartphone offers a distinct experience while putting a premium on reliability, productivity and security”
Announced at this year's Mobile World Congress, the BlackBerry Key2: Red Edition features the same design as the original Key2 but opts for a brighter crimson color scheme. Under the hood, the new handset is also packing 6GB of memory to the original Key2's 4GB.
“In today’s hyperconnected world, people need devices that they can trust for security and data privacy,” said Alex Thurber, Senior Vice President and GM of Mobility Solutions at BlackBerry.
“With a hardened Android operating system and software that alerts you when apps access your data, the BlackBerry KEY2 Red Edition is a stylish workhorse built with the highest-security standards in mind.”
Australian availability and local pricing for the BlackBerry Key2: Red Edition will be confirmed closer to local launch date.
