BlackBerry Key2: First look

Time to bust out our business suits as we play with the ultimate boardroom accessory over the next few weeks

It’s wrapped in an aluminium frame that adds to the device’s ‘handsome’ factor,

Key 2, Key Squared, Key two, it doesn’t matter what you call it. The BB Key2 is a serious device that doesn’t follow a confusing naming pattern just to stand out from the rest. Yes I’m looking at you, iPhone XTen10.

Here at Debonair, we got our hands on BlackBerry’s latest powerhouse, and while we play (and work) with it over the next couple of weeks, here are our first thoughts on the device.

With a humble price tag that falls well below the Dh3K mark, you wouldn’t think it would be a strong contender in the premium smartphone section. However it does surprise you the minute you open the box. 

It’s wrapped in an aluminium frame that adds to the device’s ‘handsome’ factor,

The device sports a 4.5-inch display perched above the physical, and typical BlackBerry keyboard. It’s wrapped in an aluminium frame that adds to the device’s ‘handsome’ factor, but turn it around and you find a rubber-slash-plastic back that negates its aluminium-led sex appeal.

What comes to its rescue are the carefully designed buttons along the right of the smartphone. It’s perfectly sized black volume rockers and power switch is wrapped in a thin metallic band, making the whole phone look incredibly classy.



Over the next few weeks, we’re curious as to how the Snapdragon 660 chip will perform, paired with the 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM. Getting used to the Android 8.1 operating system on a small screen will be an interesting challenge as well.

Stay tuned!
