Buy BlackBerry KEY2 LE SIM Free & Unlocked UK

Following a fascinating 2 years, the BlackBerry brand has once again become an interesting name in mobile.

Thanks to the stewardship of TCL, we now have the BlackBerry KEYoneMotion and KEY2, all of which have provided a legitimate reason to desire a BlackBerry phone in the modern smartphone era.   

The new KEY2 LE takes the lightweight redesign of the KEY2 and drops some core specifications by a tier to hit a lower price point, without hugely affecting performance or style. 

BlackBerry KEY2 LE is also Android Enterprise Recommended.

An Icon For All

BlackBerry's DNA runs deep in the KEY range, with the KEY2 LE featuring a full 4-row QWERTY keyboard that has an integrated fingerprint sensor.

Available for the first time at a mid-tier price, the physical keyboard massively improves typing speed and accuracy for longer emails, comments and document editing. It's also backlit for use in all lighting conditions. 

Keyboard shortcuts are available too. You can assign specific apps to launch with a basic combination, such as "alt + E" for email or "alt + F" for Facebook.

Ultimate Privacy

BlackBerry smartphones remain the device of choice for those concerned about their security. Thanks to real-time monitoring from the BlackBerry DTEK security suite, coupled with a trusted hardware-signed boot process, you can use the phone safe in the knowledge that it is constantly looking out for threats. 

Additional applications such as Locker allow you to securely store sensitive files or other data, plus FireFox Focus is pre-installed for private browsing. 

Full power for full days

A 3,000 mAh cell coupled with the power-efficient Snapdragon 636 processor makes for up to 22 hours of mixed-use battery life. Also thanks to the smaller screen size afforded by the keyboard, every BlackBerry KEY range device will have better battery life than competing handsets with the same processor and memory configuration.

Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 is supported too. Use the included charger or any QC 3.0 certified charger to achieve a 50% charge in just 36 minutes.
