Ahead of June 7 launch, images of BlackBerry KEY2 leaked

The BlackBerry Key2 appears to feature a dual lens rear camera. This itself has then been coupled with a very respectable 6GB of RAM alongside the choice of either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. As the name shows, it is going to be the successor to Blackberry KeyOne, a mid-range device from a year ago that was widely appreciated for a solid design, a good camera and more (Not the price!).

There's nothing left to the imagination as images, price and specifications leak ahead of the BlackBerry KEY2 launch tomorrow.

The BlackBerry Key2 has been designed and will be manufactured by BlackBerry's hardware partner TCL Communications, and will be shown off at an event in NY on Thursday.

On the optics front, the smartphone is expected to arrive with a dual rear camera setup with a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a secondary camera of unknown resolution.

The Key2 is said to be powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 660 14nm Mobile Platform (Quad 2.2GHz Kryo 260 + Quad 1.8GHz Kryo 260 CPUs) with Adreno 512 GPU. It'll be a touchscreen, of course, but the handset is also going to launch with a physical keyboard that features a physical fingerprint sensor for verifying your identity. Along the edge of the new flagship are three buttons, one likely for the volume, another for power and the third could be The Convenience Key, as seen on the original model. 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 will be powered by a 3360mAh battery with Quick Charge facility and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. On the agenda this year are several iOS workshops that are prioritizing performance and reliability improvements for the iPhone, as well as a few augmented reality workshops, which hint at Apple's desire to further delve into this space.
