Buy BlackBerry KEY2 LE SIM Free & Unlocked UK

Following a fascinating 2 years, the BlackBerry brand has once again become an interesting name in mobile.

Thanks to the stewardship of TCL, we now have the BlackBerry KEYone, Motion and KEY2, all of which have provided a legitimate reason to desire a BlackBerry phone in the modern smartphone era.

The new KEY2 LE takes the lightweight redesign of the KEY2 and drops some core specifications by a tier to hit a lower price point, without hugely affecting performance or style.

BlackBerry KEY2 LE is also Android Enterprise Recommended.

Order BlackBerry KEY2 LE Unlocked & SIM Free

The BlackBerry KEY2 LE unlocked and SIM Free is available to order from Clove Technology in both Slate Grey at some of the best prices availabel in the UK. Initial UK stock is Single SIM (BBE100-1) with 32GB storage and 4GB RAM.

Additional Dual SIM (BBE100-4) versions in Champagne & Atomic colours and with 64GB storage are due to be made available in October.

Dual SIM Models

BlackBerry manufacture Single SIM (BBE100-1) and Dual SIM (BBE100-4) versions of the KEY2 LE. At the time of writing only the Single SIM model is available to order in the UK.

Dual SIM versions are available in other Global regions, however, due to warranty issues and the localisation of the QWERTY keyboard, we do not currently offer these.

A UK-specific QWERTY version is due by the end of 2018. Once we have specification and pricing for this version confirmed, we will list it as an option to buy on this page.

An Icon For All

BlackBerry's DNA runs deep in the KEY range, with the KEY2 LE featuring a full 4-row QWERTY keyboard that has an integrated touchpad and fingerprint sensor.

Available for the first time at a mid-tier price, the physical keyboard massively improves typing speed and accuracy for longer emails, comments and document editing. It's also backlit for use in all lighting conditions.

Keyboard shortcuts are available too. You can assign specific apps to launch with a basic combination, such as "alt + E" for email or "alt + F" for Facebook.

The entire keyboard is also touch-sensitive. There's no need to reach up to the screen to scroll up and down through web articles or conversation threads. Just swipe on the keyboard. This works when typing too! Flick up during typing to select the currently suggested word, or slide the cursor slowly through your written text. No more trying to tap on a tiny part of the screen to get where you want to type!

Ultimate Privacy

BlackBerry smartphones remain the device of choice for those concerned about their security. Thanks to real-time monitoring from the BlackBerry DTEK security suite, coupled with a trusted hardware-signed boot process, you can use the phone safe in the knowledge that it is constantly looking out for threats.

Additional applications such as Locker allow you to securely store sensitive files or other data, plus FireFox Focus is pre-installed for private browsing.

Full power for full days

A 3,000 mAh cell coupled with the power-efficient Snapdragon 636 processor makes for up to 22 hours of mixed-use battery life. Also thanks to the smaller screen size afforded by the keyboard, every BlackBerry KEY range device will have better battery life than competing handsets with the same processor and memory configuration.

Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 is supported too. Use the included charger or any QC 3.0 certified charger to achieve a 50% charge in just 36 minutes.
