Just a few days ago, we posted official renders of the upcoming BlackBerry KEY². Today, they have been followed by a complete leak of the specification sheet as well as pricing for various markets from yet the same source – Evan Blass (@evleaks).
BlackBerry KEY² Specs
The BlackBerry KEY² will have a 4.5-inch screen with a 1620 x 1080 resolution. It appears the screen just looks bigger, it is actually the same size as the first-gen model. The display is LCD and it is covered with Gorilla Glass 3.
Under the textured back of the KEY² is a Snapdragon 660 processor. It is paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of built-in storage. The phone will also come with support for storage expansion (256GB max).
One of the big changes in the BlackBerry KEY² is the addition of an extra sensor on the rear of the phone. Now you have a 12MP f/1.8 1.28um sensor paired with another 12MP f/2.6 1.0um sensor. Up in front is an 8MP fixed focus camera for selfies.
The phone has a 3500mAh battery. There is a USB-C 3.0 port, NFC, a 3.5mm audio jack, and Bluetooth 5.0. It will come pre-loaded with tons of Blackberry Apps as well as default Android apps. It will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
The BlackBerry KEY² will have four variants – BBF100-1 for EU, Africa, AU, and Japan; BBF100-2 for NA and LATM; BBF100-4 model for China; and BBF100-6 model which has dual SIM slots for ME, APAC, India, and Indonesia.
BlackBerry KEY² Price
The BlackBerry KEY² will sell for $649 in the US, €649 in Europe, £579 in the UK, and $829 in Canada. Evleaks didn’s specify if these prices are for the 64GB or 128GB model.
The BlackBerry KEY² launches tomorrow in New York and on Friday in China.
