The phone in the image is nearly identical in design to the BlackBerry Key2 but made out of plastic. Codenamed "Luna", it is said to be the lower-end version of the newly launched BlackBerry KEY2 which is why it is not surprising to see that the phone has been called the Blackberry KEY2 Lite. Reportedly, the BlackBerry KEY2 Lite and KEY2 have the same size and form factor, so the upcoming handset should sport a 4.5-inch screen at the top of its hardware keyboard.

According to Evan Blass, the device is allegedly known as the "BlackBerry Luna a.k.a. the KEY2 Lite". It has dual cameras and a LED flash beside the setup. But this particular KEY2 Lite has a red trim all around it (side buttons included), and that's something you can't find on the normal KEY2. He didn't mention any specs but added in a follow-up tweet that the phone is expected to launch in late August/early September or maybe even at IFA. Said/shown to come in red, blue, and copper.

Despite his age, Tiger Woods has revealed the British Open offers the best chance for the star golfer to win another major. Rory McIlroy , the 2014 champion, tees off at 12.53pm, while 2007 and 2008 victor Padraig Harrington is out at 2.48pm.

The alleged smartphone is said to make its worldwide debut at the IFA Berlin, which is scheduled to take place somewhere in late August or early September. I sure didn't, but I'm glad they did. To release a lite version of this phone, TCL may scrap this CPU for something cheaper/slower and potentially include less RAM. The processor, display resolution, and internal memory might also differ, but that's just us speculating. The current KEY2 costs $649, and we're starting to see the KEYone go on discount.
