The BlackBerry KEY2 will succeed KEYone and as per its Twitter post, the company will host a launch event of 7 June at 10 am EST (that is around 1930 hours IST) in NY to officially launch its latest smartphone.

The upcoming smartphone has been spotted previously on Chinese regulatory site TENAA. As we told you earlier this week, the handset had received certifications from the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Bluetooth SIG. It is expected to be powered by the operating system Android Oreo. However, contrary reports also suggest that the KEY2 will have a plastic body and the key on its QWERTY keyboard will come with a Matte finish. Yes, a BlackBerry phone with two cameras.

The listing by TENAA showcased a dual rear camera setup on a Blackberry handset bearing model number BBF100-4. The device will also upgrade to more powerful Snapdragon 660 mobile platform and as well boost the RAM to 6GB.

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. The TENAA listing also highlighted that the handset has a 4G LTE and includes dual-SIM support.

A senior Pakistani Intelligence official later told The New York Times that Hall was questioned by police in Islamabad . According to details, a special aircraft arrived at the Nur Khan Airbase here to take the American diplomat home.

There is no rumour about the pricing of the phone but we can expect it to cost higher than KEYone.

On the front, the display of the Key2 is expected to support multi-touch 4.5-inch 3:2 display and a QWERTY keyboard with gesture support. Storage-wise, the phone ships with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Battery: 3360mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.
