  • Hashtag Trending – Facebook removes trending news, Apple’s upcoming WWDC18, BlackBerry’s new Key2 smartphone

As per an earlier leak, the BlackBerry Key2 also retains classic QWERTY keypad, and will have its the top bezel replaced by glass instead of metal found on the KeyOne. We've now come to now that BlackBerry's NY event on June 7 will not be the only event that BlackBerry will host in order to promote the release of its upcoming smartphone.

Blackberry has remained silent this year, but on June 7, we are finally getting a new Android smartphone from the company, the Blackberry Key2. With only a few days to go before its official announcement on June 7, we are now getting more renders of the handset. That smaller size and irregular resolution is expected, of course, due to the fact that the device features a physical keyboard.

For shutterbugs, dual rear cameras with a combination of 12-megapixel primary sensor and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor are expected.

As far as the pricing is concerned, Blass noted that the BlackBerry KEY2 will be available in the USA with a starting price tag of $649 (approximately Rs. 43,400). It will also feature a fingerprint scanner that will be embedded on the spacebar of the physical keyboard just like its predecessor. Additionally, the BlackBerry logo has been stamped on the back along with a dual camera setup. The key 2 is rumoured to have the same size screen but an upgraded Snapdragon 660 processor described here.

In fact, we even know the likely price, as in a separate tweet Blass has claimed that it will cost $649 / £579 (around AU$1,015). In terms of connectivity, the handset has FM radio, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device runs Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box and will be powered by a 3500mAh battery. This itself has then been coupled with a very respectable 6GB of RAM alongside the choice of either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.
