Update – July 28: Now the smartphone has passed through FCC in several variants – BBE100-1 (Single SIM) and BBE100-4 (Dual SIM) for global markets, BBE100-2 (Single SIM) and BBE100-5 (Dual SIM) for the American market and BBE100-3 for China. It also confirms that the smartphone will arrive as BlackBerry KEY2 LE.
BlackBerry announced its flagship KEY2 at an event in New York City last month. Now the details about the cheaper KEY2 Lite has surfaced along with a live image, thanks to @evleak. The smartphone is said to come with a similar design and form factor as the KEY2, but this will have a plastic body.
*This plastic ‘Berry is said to launch late August / early September, perhaps at IFA.

This is code-named Luna, which was rumored earlier and will likely feature a similar 3:2 aspect ratio display along with a 4-row QWERTY physical backlit keyboard. The smartphone is said to come in Red, Blue, and Copper. The image that has surfaced shows a Blue or Black back with red finish on the sides, and probably on the front as well.
The BlackBerry KEY2 Lite is expected to be announced sometime in late-August or early September, so there are chances we might expect it at the IFA 2018.
