As you might expect, there has already been some leaks about the Key2 that features BlackBerry's famous physical keyboard. Although the price is now unknown, if the device is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 processor, as previously suggested, we should expect it to be priced similarly to last year's model.
It has only been a couple months since we were able to catch a good glimpse of BlackBerry's unannounced smartphone of 2018. There are many leak renders which has surfaced on the web. The renders and specifications come from none other than the serial leakster Evan Blass. BlackBerry seem to be employing the same grippy back in Key2 which it used in KEYOne. The rear dual camera unit is made up of 12MP+12MP sensors accompanied with dual tone LED flash.
Notable specs include a 4.5 inch 1080P 3:2 aspect ratio display with a 35-key touch enabled backlit hardware keyboard. On the storage front, the KEY2 is expected to offer 128GB of internal storage which is further expandable up to 256GB via microSD card slot. It will also feature a fingerprint scanner that will be embedded on the spacebar of the physical keyboard just like its predecessor.
Five die in United States lettuce E. coli outbreak
Nationally, five people have died from E. coli poisoning from the tainted leafy greens; no deaths have been recorded in Texas. Most new cases involve people who became sick two or three weeks ago, when the tainted lettuce was still available for sale.
This may be BlackBerry's Key2 phone.
The Key2 is said to be powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 660 14nm Mobile Platform (Quad 2.2GHz Kryo 260 + Quad 1.8GHz Kryo 260 CPUs) with Adreno 512 GPU. We do know that BlackBerry is attempting a previously-untried retail strategy, which has seen it open stores in both Shanghai and Nanjing. The BlackBerry KEY2 will thus be the centre of attraction at the Damai Center in Beijing, China on June 8 as has been revealed through a post on Weibo. On the top, the smartphone can have a 3.5 mm audio jack, while on the bottom there is a USB Type-C port.
With the official launch date a few days away, more information and not to mention the pricing of the KEY2 will be known soon enough.
