Leaked photo suggests BlackBerry Key 2 will get a Lite version

BlackBerry Key 2 recently launched in Canada and most major markets but it seems we might be getting a newer version of the device in the future—if the leaked photos are to be believed, that is. Evan Blass (a.k.a. @evleaks) just showed a photo of what’s being called the Lite version of the aforementioned device. It’ll be made of plastic and will supposedly come in Red, Blue, and Copper. As GSMArena points out, the new colors might be seen along the rim and the front surrounding the display and its QWERTY keyboard.

The phone is codenamed BlackBerry Luna and is said to be a lower-tier version of the phone. It won’t be called a Mini because it’ll have the same size as the Key 2. But it’ll reportedly keep the Convenience key on the side and below the Volume and Power keys.
