Here is a new BlackBerry KEY2 LE teaser before its unveiling at IFA 2018
The next BlackBerry smartphone to make its debut on the market is the KEY2 LE, a mid-range phone that TCL plans to unveil later this month at IFA 2018 trade fair. The launch event has already been confirmed for August 30, so there's now less than a week until we get to learn more about the phone.

Until then, BlackBerry Mobile dropped a brand new video teaser for the KEY2 LE, which shows off almost the full back side of the smartphone, with the exception of the camera. There's not much that the teaser is showing us, but based on previous rumors, it appears that the KEY2 LE will include a 13-megapixel single camera on the back and a secondary 5-megapixel selfie snapper.

As far as the hardware goes, BlackBerry KEY2 LE is definitely a “lighter” version of the KEY2, as rumors claim the phone will pack a Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB storage.
 
 Also, the phone is said to sport a 4.5-inch display with 1080 x 1620 pixels, and a 3,000 mAh battery. We don't expect the KEY2 LE to ship with Android 9 Pie at launch, but there's a high chance the phone will receive it as an update later on.

"but there's a high chance the phone will receive it as an update later on." Unfortunately later on will more than likely be 6 months to maybe a year for Pie to get released. I don't understand why it would take so long for BlackBerry to get their devices updated when they aren't using a custom UI like Samsung and LG, who btw has done a decent job at keeping their phones updated. Just my thoughts on the matter.

WTF do you think DTEK is? Do you realize how much work is involved going over every line of code to make sure Android by BlackBerry is secure? Next time you have another one of your "thoughts", let it go.
