Unboxing: BlackBerry KEY2 by Optiemus Infracom

Optiemus launches the first Made in India BlackBerry smartphone – BlackBerry KEY2, today in India and we just couldn’t wait to show you how lovely upgrade it is to its predecessor BlackBerry KEYone, and also how unique it stands out in the all-touch jungle in market. This Rs. 42,990 tagged BlackBerry KEY2 – the ‘Icon Reborn’ as officials state, brings all the best features of legacy BlackBerry goodness with the enhancements of today’s technology powered by the latest Android Oreo operating system. The phone is powered with Snapdragon 660 processor under the hood along with 6GB of RAM. For the first time ever, a dual camera setup shows up in a BlackBerry (12 megapixel each!) and tons of many features. The most intriguing part of this handset is the iconic BlackBerry keypad! The makers state it to be as good as the good old BlackBerry Bold 9900 but I think it’s even better than that! Watch our unboxing video above to see what all comes inside the box.

Sale starts exclusively on Amazon from July 31st!
