BlackBerry KEY2 will be the next Android smartphone by the Canadian smartphone maker. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 and 6GB of RAM along with an option for either 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage along with microSD (up to 256GB) support. The front-facing camera is 8MP with fixed focus - the LCD display lights up for better low-light selfies if needed. The new phone which was supposed to be announced later this week look like a refined version of the KeyOne, with a subdued gray and black appearance, fewer conspicuous holes and sensors, and perhaps even a slightly more spacious keyboard layout.

The back of the BlackBerry KEY2 also seems to have distinct diamond pattern for added grip for holding the smartphone. We already knew that though, courtesy of the teaser trailer BlackBerry dropped recently. The company is bullish over the improvements carried with regards to the QWERTY keyboard.

Another difference - which those familiar with the KEYone will notice - is that the physical hardware buttons on the upcoming Key2, namely the power, volume rocker and convenience key, are now all located on the right side. It'll be a touchscreen, of course, but the handset is also going to launch with a physical keyboard that features a physical fingerprint sensor for verifying your identity. In all likelihood, the unmarked button is customizable and can be assigned to features like camera. Android Oreo is the software that the Blackberry key2 will come bundled with.
