BlackBerry to unveil KEY2 in New York on June 7
The Canadian Smartphone maker BlackBerry is likely to unveil its latest smartphone KEY2 in New York on June 7, 2018. TCL Communication, the Chinese multinational electronics that has the license to manufacture Blackberry smartphones, seems to take the wraps off the BlackBerry KEY2. The handset, as the name indicates, will come as the successor to last year’s BlackBerry KEYone. This news came directly from BlackBerry itself as the Canadian firm on May 11 tweeted that its KEY2 will see the light of the day on June 7 this year in an event in New York. If you haven’t noticed, what’s different this time is that the phone’s name includes the numeral ‘2’ instead of two. Earlier phone was named KEYone.

Powering the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor.
