The Logitech MX Mechanical and MX Mechanical Mini are now official. Both keyboards can be configured with Blue/Brown/Red switches with a travel distance of 19 mm and can offer up to fifteen days of battery backup. The MX Mechanical Mini costs €159 and the MX Mechanical €179.

Logitech is no stranger when it comes to making high-quality keyboards. However, it is yet to make a proper mechanical keyboard that isn't decked out with RGB, which isn't ideal for many office settings. That is set to change now, as the company has unveiled the MX Mechanical and MX Mechanical Mini keyboards alongside the highly-awaited MX Master 3S.

As their names somewhat suggest, the Logitech MX Mechanical is a full-length keyboard. On the other hand, the MX Mechanical Mini lacks a keypad, making it compact and ideal for people on the go. One can choose between three sets of mechanical switches, i.e. Tactile (Brown), Clicky (Blue) or Linear (Red). The dual-colour keycaps have a travel distance of 19 mm and are made of 45% recycled plastic. Logitech hasn't specified if the keyboards are compatible with Logitech Flow, a software that lets one use the same keyboard/mouse across multiple devices.

Logitech claims that the MX Mechanical and MX Mechanical Mini can last up to 15 days on a full charge; 10 months if the backlight is switched off. One can charge the keyboards via the included USB Type-C port if used wirelessly via Bluetooth LE. The included Logi Options+ software allows users to create per-app profiles, remap buttons and set backlight profiles. The MX Mechanical will retail at €179 and the MX Mechanical Mini at €159. Both keyboards will be purchasable in the coming weeks.
