Blackberry Key2 Launch Date

BlackBerry KEY2 teased ahead of June 7 announcement

The unveiling will take place in NY at 10am on the aforementioned date. The BlackBerry Key2 is a successor to last year's BlackBerry KeyOne that boasts premium build, Android OS out-of-the-box, and the standard BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard. Online speculation has been swirling for months that a new BlackBerry, called the Key2, was set to be announced. Previous leaks of the upcoming BlackBerry phone had named the device the BlackBerry Athena, though it is most likely to be the Key2.

The next smartphone by BlackBerry will be called the Key2 and will be launched on 7 June in NY according to this new teaser by the brand on its official social media channel. The TENAA listing had revealed several specifications and other details of the alleged BlackBerry KEY2.

In January, BlackBerry Mobile President Alain Lejeune had confirmed that the company is working on at least two new smartphones for 2018. As per the images available on the TENAA site, the smartphone will have a complete rubberised, textured panel on the back.
