TCL may launch a BlackBerry KEY² Lite soon

BlackBerry KEY2 Lite aka Luna allegedly leaks out should be cheaper than the regular KEY2

A recent revelation by reputed tipster Evan Blass makes us believe that TCL, the Chinese manufacturing firm behind the Finnish multinational is already on the process of prototyping, if not manufacturing the BlackBerry Key2 Lite, at least, that's the name Blass want us to believe.

While nothing has been confirmed, the "Lite" moniker could indicate that the upcoming handset might come with some inferior specifications to its KEY2 counterpart or that maybe some material changes will be made in order to keep the cost down.

The phone will likely launch in late August or early September, potentially at IFA. Apparently, the costlier and more powerful BlackBerry Key2 came with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor and 6GB RAM.

'Hotel Transylvania 3' heads North American box office at $44.1M
The studio is banking on the former WWE wrestler's massive worldwide following to justify the film's pricey US$125 million budget. Sony's animated family feature picked up US$46.4 million overseas the past weekend for a global start of US$100 million.

The phone, codenamed BlackBerry Luna, will not be a “Mini” version since it will be the same size as the regular Blackberry Key2. It has dual cameras and a LED flash beside the setup. According to Blass, consumers will also be able to purchase one of these handsets in blue and copper if red doesn't fit their fancy. But this particular KEY2 Lite has a red trim all around it (side buttons included), and that's something you can't find on the normal KEY2. The BlackBerry KeyOne was one of the most unique and surprising phones of 2017.

And that's about all we know about the rumored BlackBerry Key2 Lite for now. That isn't too bad of a price tag for those who have been wanting a modern smartphone that still features a hardware keyboard.
