Blackberry is all set to launch the KEY2 on June 7th at an event in NY. The front-facing camera is 8MP with fixed focus - the LCD display lights up for better low-light selfies if needed.

Canadian firm BlackBerry had recently revealed that it will launch its new smartphone KEY2 on June 7 at NY city. While there do not seem to be major changes in terms of the design of the smartphone, though there are some minor upgrades.

Elsewhere, the BlackBerry Key2 is said to feature dual-lens (12MP+12MP) primary camera.

The combination of a Snapdragon 660 SoC processor with a large 3,500 mAh battery may result in longer operating time on a full charge.

Weeks after being certified at the FCC, the upcoming BlackBerry flagship is all set for an unveiling in NY followed by a launch event in China bringing us closer to the possibility of seeing the successor of BlackBerry KEYone in India soon. Along the edge of the new flagship are three buttons, one likely for the volume, another for power and the third could be The Convenience Key, as seen on the original model. In all likelihood, the unmarked button is customizable and can be assigned to features like camera. The Key2 will come with BlackBerry's signature QWERTY keyboard, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Android Oreo out of the box.

In the leaked images, BlackBerry KEY2 is seen flaunting a dual rear camera with an LED flash.

On the connectivity part, the phone will offer 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4 & 5 GHz), Bluetooth 4.2, GPS / GLONASS, NFC, USB 3.1 Type-C.

I'm not a little bit embarrassed to say I'm really excited about the upcoming BlackBerry Key2. It will be one of the few devices to do so this year, and that's what makes it interesting to most.

We still don't know what kind of specs the KEY2 will come equipped with or how much it'll cost, but those fine details will soon be set in stone later this week.
