BlackBerry Key2 with a QWERTY keyboard to launch on June 7

Blackberry Key2 Launch Date

The BlackBerry tweeted today May 11 that the BlackBerry KEY2 would launch on June 7, 2018. BlackBerry has not only made it clear that it is still around but is also ready to announce its next smartphone. The BlackBerry Key2 is a successor to last year's BlackBerry KeyOne that boasts premium build, Android OS out-of-the-box, and the standard BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard.

Further, BlackBerry KEY2 is rumoured to come with dual cameras.

We've heard rumors and speculation about a new BlackBerry phone called the Key2 and now it's (just about) official - BlackBerry has sent out invitations to a special launch event in NY on June 7, and mentions the Key2 by name. That event will be taking place in NY at 10:00 AM local time. The BlackBerry Mobile team included the key emoji, along with the number 2, giving us a confirmation of the KEY2 branding. Last month, a mysterious BlackBerry handset, codenamed "Athena", appeared in a Chinese certification site.

In truth BlackBerry has been attempting to revive its traditional-looking, physical keyboard phones to compete with Samsung, Apple, Google and the rest for years now - remember the 2014 BlackBerry Classic? let's hope they can get it just a little bit more right this time around. On the top, the smartphone could have a 3.5mm audio jack, while its bottom might have a USB Type-C port. The TENAA listing also hints that the BlackBerry Key2 will come with 4G LTE along with dual-SIM support. The keys on the full QWERTY keyboard of the handset also have a matte finish. The device will also upgrade to more powerful Snapdragon 660 mobile platform and as well boost the RAM to 6GB.
