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.

No. Optiemus only carries the black model .
Any idea for availability of silver BBkey2
Will the retail phone have the same kind of Package???
Not much different from key one which I had .not buying this one ,processor should have been 835 at this price,.
Exactly what I was expecting. But I highly recommend everyone ,not just KEY??? owners, to give this phone a try! 660 is a bit faster than 821 and it shows.
???? silver edition ?? ?? ???? ???? ?? ??????? silver edition ?????? ????? ????? ???
We want silver edition.
There will be no silver edition in india, unfortunately.
What reason for silver bbkey2 not in India
Any chance of an improved camera module or updates in software for improved camera results ? I am impressed by the key 2 but for the camera performance. Key 3 in the pipeline ?
