In the world of smartphones, where “all screen” phones are rapidly taking over, Blackberry has dared to launch a phone with a keypad. Yes, as bizarre as it sounds in 2018 it is true. Blackberry in the past was mainly known for their “keypad” phones. And yet again they were persistent enough to stick with the keypad. The 64 GB blackberry key 2 costs 500$. Hence, Blackberry key 2 price in Nepal is expected to be around 60 thousand rupees.
The design of blackberry key 2 is not really the appealing type. The design is quite similar to key 1, however, the key 2 comes with a dual camera at the back. The phone has a 4.5″ touchscreen. The is a fingerprint scanner and it is hidden in the space bar. It has dual down-firing speakers and a USB C for quick charging. The headphone jack is also present along with a programmable, mappable button. The design is something ‘out of the box’. Meaning, if you want to stand out in the crowd, then, this could be the phone you could go for.
Features of Blackberry key 2
Blackberry is mostly known for their tactile keypad on their phones and none the less it is extremely satisfying to type in the blackberry key 2. The buttons are clicky and pleasing to press. It houses Snapdragon 660, a mid-tier chip with a 3500 mAh battery. Worrying about the phone dying is something you don’t have to do because it gives 2 days worth of use on a single charge. The phone runs Android 8.1 oreo, with a Blackberry skin. It has dual cameras at the back, both 12 MP, but the picture quality is not on par with other phones in the same price range. On the front, the phone has a 4.5-inch touchscreen. The screen works like in any other phones and can be used for an on-screen keyboard.
Similarly, the phone has a productivity bar on the right side of the screen where the most used apps and pages can be found for easy navigation. Also, you can map apps or certain pages of apps to be triggered through the keyboard shortcut.
