If you were hoping to see the successor to the BlackBerry KEY2 at MWC this year, then you might be disappointed as the handset failed to make an appearance. However for those who are fine with the KEY2, you might be pleased to learn that a new colorway for the handset has been announced in a striking red finish.

Dubbed the BlackBerry KEY2 Red Edition, this is essentially the same handset as the KEY2 that was launched last year. The main difference here is that the phone now comes in a red finish which we have to say looks pretty good, although a lot less sleek compared to the black version, and maybe not quite as appropriate in a corporate setting.

For those who forgot the specs of the phone, this includes a 4.5-inch 1080×1620 display and the use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset with 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a dual 12MP camera on the back with a front-facing 8MP shooter, along with a 3,500mAh battery and a physical QWERTY keyboard.

Given that there aren’t that many phones with physical keyboards these days, this makes the KEY2 quite a rarity in this day and age, so it might be worth checking out if you are a fan of BlackBerry devices.
