BlackBerry fans looking forward to picking up the cheaper version of the company’s high-end smartphone can now get their wallets ready. BlackBerry KEY2 LE pre-orders are now open in the United States through Amazon. The handset can be picked up in slate and champagne colors and both have different release dates.

The BlackBerry KEY2 LE in slate is going to start shipping on October 12th. The one in champagne will be available starting November 2nd. The price of this handset is $449.99 unlocked and off-contract. It’s now available for pre-order from Amazon.

The design of this handset is similar to the BlackBerry KEY2 but the specs have been changed a bit to lower the price point. It has a Snapdragon 636 processor with 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of storage. It also comes with a 3,000mAh battery. There’s a 4.5 inch 1620×1080 IPS LCD display with Gorilla Glass, a 13 + 5 megapixel dual rear and an 8 megapixel front camera. The device comes with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.

The price mentioned above is for the 64GB variant of this device. BlackBerry previously said that the 32GB variant is going to cost $399 in the United States. It may soon start taking pre-orders for that model as well which will be a bit lighter on the pocket of prospective customers.
