BlackBerry KEY² to be unveiled on June 7

The BlackBerry KEY² will be officially unveiled on June 7 at 10am in New York, according to a new tweet on the brand’s official Twitter account. The tweet features the slogan “An Icon Reborn.”

The handset is expected to eventually be available on an international level, even though it’s unlikely to be treated to a global release initially.

There are a number of key, visible differences to its predecessor, the KEYOne. For starters, you can see a dual lens camera on the rear. Last year’s models only had a single lens unit. The side frames and rear panel are made of plastic and brushed metal combo it seems, which look premium in black.

It appears that the BlackBerry KEY² will stick with the 3.5mm headphone jack, but in a potentially slimmer build. The keyboard also seems a little more sleek than on the KeyOne.

Coming to the side, there is a dedicated capture button apart from the volume rockers and power button. The USB Type-C Port, Speaker and Microphone are located at the bottom, while the headphone jack is present at the top.

The device is rumoured to come with a Snapdragon 660 + 8GB RAM.
