BlackBerry Key2 leaks with physical keyboard and dual cameras

We know that BlackBerry and TCL plan to announce their newest smartphone collaboration, the BlackBerry Key2, on June 7. This is notably higher than the price of the BlackBerry KEYone that was launched in the United States at $549 (around Rs. 36,700).

BlackBerry KEY2 specifications and price details have emerged online ahead of its formal debut that is scheduled in New York City for Wednesday, June 7. Today, Evan Blass leaked the official press renders of the device that left nothing to the imagination.

The latest leak comes from the serial tipster Evan Blass who has shared the images on Twitter.The leaked image give a detailed view of the upcoming smartphone showing the phone from various angles. That smaller size and irregular resolution is expected, of course, due to the fact that the device features a physical keyboard. The back panel also now hosts a dual camera system with LED flash which is the first time BlackBerry is employing in terms of imaging.

And it looks like TCL will equip the Key2 with a dual camera, although the specifics of the setup have not yet been revealed. The smartphone also has a fingerprint sensor embedded under the spacebar key. The key 2 is rumoured to have the same size screen but an upgraded Snapdragon 660 processor described here. On the top, the smartphone can have a 3.5 mm audio jack, while on the bottom there is a USB Type-C port. The device runs Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box and will be powered by a 3500mAh battery. The leaked images are consistent with the past rumours which suggested the phone will feature a combination of touch-screen and a QWERTY keypad.

Though the front looks a bit more refined when compared to its predecessor, the real change can be found on the rear.

With the official launch date a few days away, more information and not to mention the pricing of the KEY2 will be known soon enough.
