How to watch the BlackBerry Key2 launch

For changes over last year's KeyOne, BlackBerry highlights an improved physical keyboard with Speed Key, which allows you to utilize shortcuts and gestures to open apps regardless of what screen you're on. It may not have the power of a Snapdragon 845, but it should make better use of the 3,500 mAh battery, which also supports Quick Charge 3.0. The display above it comes in at 4.5 inches, at 1620x1080 resolution.

It is also the first BlackBerry device to feature dual rear camera which is consisted of a 12MP f/1.8 dual PDAF camera and another 12MP f/2.6 PDAF camera.

Beneath it there's a reworked keyboard, with larger keys that are also 20-percent higher than on the BlackBerry KEYone. TCL is using them for portrait mode photography along with a lossless zoom - here it's called the "Optical Superzoom" - but the claim is also better auto white balance and faster autofocus, along with improvements in image stabilization. You still get in-keyboard fingerprint recognition.

BlackBerry has also added a new "Speed Key" to the Key2 which can be used for customizable functions. As for sound there's still a 3.5mm headphone jack, which will please many, or you can go wireless with Bluetooth 5.0.

Apparently " keeping up with the Kardashians " means more to Trump than being the tough-on-crime president he promised to be. Kardashian West is also responding to the decision, tweeting " BEST NEWS EVER! ".

The KEY2 offers two days of battery life and 6GB of memory in both the 64GB and 128GB versions of the device. If you need additional storage, you can pop a microSD card into the KEY2. There are about 15 BlackBerry apps preloaded in total. The keyboard-toting flagship brings a number of new features. A second application, Locker, creates private folders for documents that enable users to prevent them from being uploaded to the cloud.

Running on the Key2 out of the box there's Android 8.1 Oreo, and BlackBerry Mobile says that security updates will be delivered on a monthly basis. The model that would come to India, in July, will be made by Optiemus Infracom.

We do know the price for the BlackBerry KEY2, though, which will be set at $649. Although the KEY2 will be available for buying in the West this month, in global markets (including in India), the phone will be available for buying in July, BlackBerry has confirmed.
