Aside from that, the leak reveals that BlackBerry's Key2 will ship with dual rear cameras, each offering 12-megapixel sensors. 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 confirmed that it is going to launch its latest offering, the BlackBerry KEY2 at an event in NY on June 7.

The BlackBerry Key2 is all set for an official unveiling tomorrow, and rumors of the device are already flying thick and fast. Features of the Key 2 A key feature of the Key series is the physical keyboards. On the front, you'll find an 8-megapixel camera that can record video in 1080p.

Its main specifications are also confirmed, such as the 4.5-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1,620 x 1,080 pixels, Gorilla Glass 3, and a 3:2 aspect ratio. The BlackBerry KEY2 is seen sporting a dual-rear camera setup with an LED flash.


Other expected specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 CPU backed by a heft 6GB of RAM.

BlackBerry KEY2 is equipped with a dual camera on the back, where there is a rubber cover.

That being said, the changes in design are not noticeable at the first glance. It will also feature a fingerprint scanner that will be embedded on the spacebar of the physical keyboard just like its predecessor. Lastly, those hoping for a 3.5mm headphone jack are in luck, with the connector present on the top of the smartphone. The Key2 should come running Android, like the KeyOne did, and be backed by plenty of super secure enterprise software. We do know that BlackBerry is attempting a previously-untried retail strategy, which has seen it open stores in both Shanghai and Nanjing.

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.
