The BlackBerry Key2 is formally showing up on June 7

We've heard rumors and conjecture of a new BlackBerry phone called the Key2 and today it's (more or less) formal – BlackBerry has sent invites to a special launch occasion in nyc on June 7, and mentions the Key2 by title.

The phone will be the follow-up to last year's BlackBerry KeyOne, which impressed united states using its keyboard-led design and software safety but that has been something of the letdown with regards to the performance in hood and all others material today’s phone is supposed to address today – like music and films.

If you've got a hankering for BlackBerry phones of yesteryear though, the Key2 launch should be worth taking care of. The tagline in the invitation is "an symbol reborn", to make certain that sure sounds like BlackBerry's classic approach updated for the world in 2018.

Vintage BlackBerry

In truth BlackBerry has been attempting to revive its traditional-looking, physical keyboard phones to compete with Samsung, Apple, Bing as well as the rest for a long time now – keep in mind the 2014 BlackBerry Classic? let's hope they may be able get it slightly bit more right these times.

Centered on exactly what we've heard thus far, we're expecting a dual-lens camera regarding the back of the device, and of course an effective keyboard to mash your digits into. We're hoping that there's sufficient oomph under the bonnet too, so that it can keep with demanding tasks.

We're now less than 30 days far from that launch date, so we have to start to hear more rumors and leakages drip through inside days ahead, but we'll also enable you to get all the formal news as it's announced from New York. In annually that's been dominated by top-quality phones, BlackBerry has its work cut fully out to keep up.
