Best cases for the BlackBerry KEY2

BlackBerry breathed new life into the physical keyboard when it launched the KeyOne back at MWC 2017, and it certainly lived up expectations for BlackBerry fans. In 2018, though, the company launched the KEY2 to carry the torch onwards with a more powerful Snapdragon 660 processor, 6GB of RAM, dual rear cameras and Android Oreo. To keep your KEY2 in the same condition as when you bought it, you may want to join us after the break to check out the very best cases we could find for BlackBerry’s latest flagship.

BlackBerry SoftShell Case

It makes sense to kick the guide off with BlackBerry’s official SoftShell case that is made of non-touch silicon that sits softly in the hand without adding bulk to the KEY2’s profile. All four corners have protection, the cutouts are easily accessed, and the case itself is NFC friendly so you can carry on using Google Pay to pay for your latte. The BlackBerry SoftShell case is available to pre-order in black from MobileFun for $27.99.
