What All the Leaks Are Saying About the BlackBerry KEY2

TCL launches the BlackBerry Key2 for $649

"BlackBerry has been iterating and perfecting our approach to mobile security for decades, and we're excited to have this new genuine, modern BlackBerry smartphone available for our fans around the world to enjoy". There's also a new button called the Speed Key, which acts as a shortcut button to quickly switch between apps.

The BlackBerry KEY2 begins shipping globally in June and will cost £579 GBP / $649 United States dollars / €649 Euro / $829 CAD.

BlackBerry KEY2 bestows a 4.5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1620 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 3:2. The display is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

The device is powered by a Snapdragon 660 64bit SoC clocked at 2.2 GHz and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. So there are two examples of just display-related aspects that are not only different but the opposite of what OEMs now see as conventional thinking and consumer must-haves.

The Key2 is also the first BlackBerry to feature a dual-rear camera system, consisting of two 12 megapixel sensors.

The dual cameras with an aperture of F/1.8 and one with a F/2.6 provide "Portrait Mode" and faster auto-focus.

BlackBerry boasts that the Key2 has also been approved under Google's business-focused Android Enterprise Recommended programme.

BlackBerry has announced its latest smartphone named as KEY2 at an event in NY.

BlackBerry said the KEY2's keyboard will make typing on the go "more immediate and effortless". There's a dual tone LED flash and support for 4K video recording.

While the BlackBerry KEYOne sported a single camera at the back, the BlackBerry KEY2 boasts a dual camera setup on its back.

So, what do you think of the BlackBerry Key2? The smartphone also comes with sensors like Accelerometer, Ambient Light sensor, Gyroscope, Hall Effect sensor, a Fingerprint sensor (situated on the spacebar key), Magnetometer & Proximity sensor. The battery under the hood is a 3,500mAh unit with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 via USB Type-C port. Moreover, it has a new dedicated "Speed key" that lets you launch apps by pressing it and the letter assigned to the app. The storage will be expandable up to 256GB using a microSD card.

Compared to the KeyOne, the keys offered on the Key2 are 20 per cent bigger.

The model replaces the KEYone, which was well-received at its launch previous year, and suggested there was a following who wanted the keyboard, as well as the security and battery life associated with the brand. The last phone would happily last all day and some, and it was the best battery life I have tested until I got the Mate 10 Pro.
