BlackBerry KEY2 available to pre-order in UK from Selfridges

TCL launched the BlackBerry KEY2 yesterday at events in New York and China, featuring an iconic BlackBerry physical keyboard and a lot of upgrades from the BlackBerry KEYone.

The mid-range device is now available to pre-order in the UK from Selfridges for £579 ($649 USD / €649 EUR / / $829 CAD) and at the time of publishing, we are unaware if this is for an exclusive period or not.

Pre-orders are available until June 27.

Running the latest Android 8.1 Oreo operating system, the BlackBerry KEY2 is the first ever BlackBerry smartphone to feature a dual-rear camera. It also includes the introduction of Speed Key, a universal shortcut key that now makes it possible to instantly access the apps, contacts and functions you use most from anywhere on your device at any time.

The BlackBerry KEY2 is availale to pre-order from Selfridges here.
