Press images of Blackberry Key2 leak ahead of launch

Blackberry is all set to launch the KEY2 on June 7th at an event in NY.

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. BlackBerry also last month released a teaser video to give a glimpse of the upcoming handset.

The dimensions meanwhile are said to be 151.4 x 71.8 x 8.5mm, making it slimmer than, but otherwise a similar size to, the 149.1 x 72.4 x 9.4mm BlackBerry KeyOne.

Besides a problem with plastics, India is also home to some of the most polluted cities in the world. But elsewhere things haven't gone so well.

The physical keyboard now comes with a new key that resembles that of an old-style App Drawer, the one that was found in Android Lollipop and Marshmallow. That's an increase over the $549 / £499 / AU$729 starting price of the KeyOne, but then the specs are also seemingly a lot better, so it's believable.

The phone's back has a textured panel with what looks like rubberised finish. Unfortunately though, it doesn't reveal much about the phone itself, other than the fact that it'll ship with a dual-camera setup. Today, Evan Blass leaked the official press renders of the device that left nothing to the imagination.

In the leaked images, BlackBerry KEY2 is seen flaunting a dual rear camera with an LED flash. And the companies have been teasing the handset as an "icon reborn" leading up to that date. On the front, the BlackBerry KEY2 will feature an 8-megapixel camera for taking clearer selfies and an enhanced video calling experience. 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. Sensors on board, as per the leaked sheet, include an accelerometer, ambient light, gyroscope, magnetometer, and a proximity sensor. The fingerprint sensor is housed inside the space bar just like its predecessor.
