BlackBerry Mobile has announced via its Twitter account that the BlackBerry KEY² will launch next month.
The tweet not only confirms the launch date as 7th of June but also confirms the name of the phone is KEY² and not KEYone (2018) or KEYtwo or any other name you may have conjured up. The launch event will take place in New York at 10 AM local time.
A few weeks ago, photos of the phone which is codenamed Athena were seen on TENAA. They revealed the phone has a slightly redesigned keyboard, a somewhat taller display, and dual rear cameras. It also has its power and volume buttons along with the convenience key on the right.
The BlackBerry KEY² also got Wi-Fi and Bluetooth certified recently. It will have support for dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0. It is also said to pack a Snapdragon 660 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.
The rest of the specs may show up later before the launch but we might not get to know the price and market availability until after the event.
