BlackBerry KEY2 Render Leaked Ahead on Launch on June 7

TCL gives the Black Berry Key2 a separate Chinese launch amidst big retail push

The rear panel on the Blackberry KeyOne isn't fully textured (has a metallic strip on top) but, as seen in the images above, that's not the case with the upcoming Key2.

Last year's KeyOne was pretty overpriced when it launched, so we are expecting that Blackberry won't repeat the same mistake this year with the Blackberry Key2.

The Key2's launch is penned for June 7, and will take place in New York City. Today, Evan Blass leaked the official press renders of the device that left nothing to the imagination.

Frequent mobile tipster Evan Blass shared images of what he says is the BlackBerry Key2 on Twitter, showing the phone from multiple angles. BlackBerry seem to be employing the same grippy back in Key2 which it used in KEYOne. Also, the new model includes an 8-megapixel selfie camera with full-HD (1080p) video recording support. The display is a 4.5-incher with an old-school 3:2 aspect ratio (1080x1620px resolution) protected by Gorilla Glass 3 layer. The device was powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. As per the details revealed in the teaser, BlackBerry's new flagship device could come with a dual lens camera and a pre-installed Privacy Shade and a new app drawer shortcut. Additionally, a fingerprint sensor is embedded on its spacebar key.

Though the front looks a bit more refined when compared to its predecessor, the real change can be found on the rear.

The battery measures in at 3500mAh, it's running Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, has a 3.5mm headphone jack, and there is the relatively big physical keyboard below the display, which really makes the Key2 stand out. This itself has then been coupled with a very respectable 6GB of RAM alongside the choice of either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.

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.
