The highlights of the phone are the presence of embedded fingerprint sensor in spacebar key of the keypad and a dedicated customized speed key which allows you to assign any task.
The main sore point of the device is the price which is fixed at Rs 42,990. With just Snapdragon 660, it’s very hard to attract customers to buy BlackBerry KEY2 when you get devices like OnePlus 6, Asus Zenfone 5Z with superior specifications at a very less price. The device will be available for purchase from Amazon from July 31.Unless you are a die-hard blackberry fan, we think this phone will not set the records in sales. Let us know what you think.
