BlackBerry KEY2 gets official announcement date
It seems BlackBerry Mobile is revving up to unleash the KEY² smartphone upon the world. A new tweet on the brand’s official Twitter account gives a reveal date of June 7 at 10 a.m., with the event taking place in New York. No other details about the launch event have been offered, but there have already been plenty of rumors and leaks in regard to the expected specifications for the KEYone’s successor.
The KEY² is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 and feature 6 GB of RAM. 64 GB of storage, 12 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera, 3360 mAh battery, and a 4.5-inch screen with a 1620x1080 resolution round off the predicted specifications. Naturally, being a BlackBerry device, the KEY² should also incorporate the famous physical keyboard that the brand is renowned for.
The BlackBerry KEYone received a rating of “good” from Notebookcheck upon review, but it was let down by its high price, average cameras, and its relatively bulky appearance. It will be interesting to see how much the KEY² can improve over its predecessor’s performance.
