Meet the new BlackBerry Key2 LE, which comes in not-very-fruity flavors -- slate, champagne and atomic.

The BlackBerry Key2 LE will be available in the US and UK in September with a starting price of $399 (£349) for the 32GB version, and $449 (£399) for the 64GB model. It will also be sold in France, UAE, Germany and Canada. There's no word on Australian availability and pricing.

The Key2 LE has a midrange Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor and a middling 4GB of RAM.
