Low-Profile Backlit Keyboards

Keychron's 'V2' Mechanical Keyboard Boasts a Flattened Frame

— September 20, 2022 — Tech
Keychron launched the 'Keychron V2,' its latest mechanical keyboard with a low-profile design. The most notable change to the V2, the latest addition to the company's 'V' line of keyboards, is its flattened frame and raised keys that make for a comfortable typing experience.

Aside from its low-profile design, the Keychron V2 has a 65% layout that removes the numpad, extra control and alt keys, the function key row, and all quick keys except for delete and home. This allows the keyboard to be ultra-compact and portable, taking up the smallest amount of desk space possible. This form factor is ideal for typists, professionals, and gamers alike who do not have a need for the extra quick-function keys.

Lastly, the Keychron V2 is ultra-personalizable due to its hot-swappable design, its QMK and VIA software compatibility, and its pre-lubed keycaps. The keyboard is available now from Keychron at $94.00 USD.
