BlackBerry KEY2 specs and prices leak online

BlackBerry Mobile will unveil the new BlackBerry KEY2 tomorrow at events in New York and Beijing. The specs and the prices of the device have now been leaked online, courtesy of Evan Blass.

BlackBerry KEY2 apparently has a dual-lens rear camera, comprising a 12MP f/1.8 lens and a 12MP f/2.6 one. That’s in place of just a single-lens camera on the KeyOne.

The cameras here can also apparently shoot 4K footage at 30 frames per second and have a dual-LED flash, while there’s an 8MP camera listed for the front.

Other spec highlights include a 4.5-inch 1080 x 1620 display with a pixel density of 434 pixels per inch, a physical backlit QWERTY keyboard with an integrated fingerprint scanner, 6GB of RAM (up from a maximum of 4GB on the KeyOne) and an octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset (replacing the Snapdragon 625 in its predecessor).

The BlackBerry KEY2 also apparently has a 3,500mAh battery, 64GB or 128GB of storage, a microSD card slot, a 3.5mm headphone port, fast charging, and runs Android 8.1 Oreo.

The dimensions meanwhile are said to be 151.4 x 71.8 x 8.5mm, making it slimmer than, but otherwise a similar size to, the 149.1 x 72.4 x 9.4mm BlackBerry KeyOne.

Blass claims that it will cost $649 / £579.
