Key 2 LE

BlackBerry KEY2 LE now available in South Africa

Back in August, TCL unveiled the BlackBerry KEY2 LE and the company are launching the trimmed down Key2 today in South Africa. The single-SIM, 32GB variant of the KEY2 LE in slate is available from Vodacom World and Vodacom Shops starting at R429 PM x 24 on a Smart XS+ package.

The BlackBerry KEY2 LE features a lightweight polycarbonate frame and a newly designed soft textured back that provides better in-hand grip to prevent drops. It also includes a Full-HD, 2.5D display and will be available in three accent colour options: Slate, Champagne, and Atomic.

The BlackBerry KEY2 LE comes with 4GB of memory and in both 32GB and 64GB storage variants – with both offering expandable storage MicroSD support. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and an efficient battery that offers up to 22 hours of mixed use to get you through the busiest of days and often into the next day.

“Today’s smartphones try to offer a one size fits all solution, but that is no longer realistic when we have a global marketplace as diverse as we have today,” said Alain Lejeune, Senior Vice President, TCL Communication & President, BlackBerry Mobile.

“But this is why we focus on making modern BlackBerry smartphones like KEY2 LE, to stand out and deliver a great experience for everyday communication, with access to all the features, connectivity and applications our customers expect.”
