TCL have had some decent success with the Blackberry KEY2 and today at MWC in Barcelona they have announced a new variant in a stunning and yet subtle red colour.
The new version phone, the Blackberry KEY2 Red Edition is the same as the previous standard edition inside and includes their “iconic Blackberry physical keyboard” and includes Blackberry’s security and privacy enhancements.
