The name BlackBerry will certainly invoke certain emotions in many of us who began to ride on the smartphone wave back when it first kicked off.

The BlackBerry Key2 will start at $649 in America and will be available for pre-order in seven countries including the United States starting later this month.

Available in Black and Silver, you can pre-order one from Carphone Warehouse and Selfridges.

As expected, BlackBerry has further refined the physical keyboard for what it describes as a "more immediate" and "effortless" typing experience. They are offering both the two variants. The appearance of BlackBerry KEY2 is unique. Looking at the tech specs it's a bit lower on the ladder of 2018 flagship phones, but the price is reasonable and the keyboard is good for those who struggle with the virtual version on all other touchscreen phones. This is a particularly useful time saver for those in the business world, or so BlackBerry says. Now they are trying to increase their market share with some exclusive gadgets.

BlackBerry has always put great emphasis on privacy and security, and things are no different with the Key2.

"They're going to meet more scrutiny than they would have even a year ago", Sacks said.

The BlackBerry Key2 is priced at $649 (roughly Rs 43875). They can handle different tasks easily through this model. It comes preinstalled with DTEK by BlackBerry, an app that provides you with a dashboard look at your device's security. DTEK by BlackBerry now includes a new Proactive Health check feature, which allows users to instantly get feedback on potential vulnerabilities and security optimizations on their phones. No, not really, is the answer, but evidently enough people bought the 2017 BlackBerry Key for BlackBerry to feel justified in making another one. A second application, Locker, creates private folders for documents that enable users to prevent them from being uploaded to the cloud.

The BlackBerry Key2, which boasts a rugged Series 7 aluminium frame and a new diamond-patterned textured rear, also boasts a 4.5in 1080x1620 display, a 3,500mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0, 64GB or 128GB built-in storage, a 3.5mm headphone jack and Android 8.1 Oreo. It has IPS LCD display and the pixel density is 434ppi.

Launched in NY this week, it brings with it a version of Android 8.1 "Oreo", with BlackBerry security enhancements, and sits atop a mid-to-high-end processor from Qualcomm, the eight-core Snapdragon 660 chip, which is paired with 6GB RAM and either 64 or 128GB of storage, with room to move over a microSD slot.

If, however, you're a loyal BlackBerry customer, a diehard keyboard warrior, or one of BlackBerry's longstanding corporate clients, then the Key2 may still draw you in.

The enhanced security and privacy features that have been the backbone of BlackBerry smartphones are highlighted in the KEY2, from a hardened operating system to BlackBerry's proprietary technique for establishing a hardware root to the processor, the BlackBerry KEY2 is the most secure Android smartphone ever.
