TCL will unveil the BlackBerry KEY² on June 7. The event will hold in New York, which means the phone will go on sale in North America first. If you live in China, you won’t have to wait for long as the phone will head to Asia the next day.
BlackBerry has already sent out invites that reveal the BlackBerry KEY² will launch in Beijing on June 8. The event will begin at 9:30 AM (Beijing time) at the Damai Center (Hall 1).
BlackBerry has also signed a deal with Jingdong to sell the device. We can’t confirm if this is exclusive to the e-commerce giant or if other platforms will sell the phone too. Jingdong has already put up a page for the device. If you are interested you can go on and register.
The BlackBerry KEY² is reported to come in two variants – a Snapdragon 450 version with 4GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 660 version with 6GB of RAM. Other specs such as cameras, battery, screen resolution should be the same across models. The BlackBerry KEY² will also come with dual rear cameras and a redesigned keyboard.
