The Blackberry Key2 Red Edition officially hit stores in the US today.
Boasting 128GB of storage out-of-the-box, the all-new Red Edition offers twice the amount of storage as previous versions. To boot, the $700 device packs improvements to the BlackBerry Hub and Calendar – and also ships with a pair of red earbuds to match the phone’s flashy appearance.
Despite the upgrades, some in tech community debate whether or not the Key 2 is a sequel or simply the same old phone in a different color. Bolstering their argument, much of the Red Edition remains unchanged. The phone still boasts a mediocre Snapdragon 660, 6GB RAM and 3,500 mAh battery – specs you can find on any number of mid-range devices from 2018.
What’s more, considering you can buy the exact same phone (not in red and half the storage) for a $100 less, the Key2 Red Edition might be a hard sell for some. With all of that said, it certainly is one of the most beautiful smartphones on the market right now.
