BlackBerry sends out invites for the launch of KEY2

The Black Berry KeyOne launched in 2017.                  Josh Miller  CNET

The company's official Twitter handle posted the invite for the launch of the device, which will be held in NY on June 7. The branding of KEY2 is pretty interesting, with new Blackberry KEY2 logo with a numeral "2" rather than two spelled out, like the company did with KEYone. The KEY2 event starts at 10 AM ET (7:30 PM IST) on June 7th, Thursday. As of now, there is no clarity on what BlackBerry will pack in the KEYone successor, but there is no doubt that it will have a physical keyboard, which was a massive part of the company's success in its heydays.

The invitation apparently includes the tag "an icon reborn", so don't be entirely surprised if the Key 2 is somewhat nostalgic in design, at least compared to most modern smartphones. Last month, a mysterious BlackBerry handset, codenamed "Athena", appeared in a Chinese certification site.

BlackBerry Mobile revealed the BlackBerry Key2 launch date through its official Twitter account. This is contrary to the back panel on the BlackBerry KEYone that didn't have a textured design above the rear camera setup. Other expected features are a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top, and a USB type-C port at the bottom.

No further details have been revealed at this point in time but seeing as how it's a successor to the KeyOne, it's safe to say that the handset is going to have a full QWERTY keyboard.

Further, BlackBerry KEY2 is rumoured to come with dual cameras. Moreover, there are some rumors which suggest the handset will debut with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM.
