BlackBerry and TCL made the KEY2 officially official back in June, and now it looks like the companies are already planning on launching a variant at some point.
Serial leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) took to Twitter to post a single photo of what he is calling the “BlackBerry KEY2 Lite”. According to the tweet, the handset will come in red (as pictured above), blue, and a copper color. Unfortunately, the tweet doesn’t come along with any other information pertaining to the device, as far as specs and pricing is concerned.

Blass does note that the handset is called “Lite” and not “Mini” because the KEY2 Lite will have the same form factor as the standard KEY2. What the handset will actually bring to the table with the Lite brand remains a mystery for now.
A red BlackBerry KEY2 would be an interesting handset, and a lot of folks seem to enjoy different color options for their devices. It will come down to specs and pricing, as well as availability, though, which we will hopefully know more about soon.
