Check out the invitation for the BlackBerry KEY2's unveiling in China on June 8th
BlackBerry Mobile's verified Weibo account reveals images of the invitation sent out in China for the unveiling of the BlackBerry KEY2. The eagerly-awaited sequel to the BlackBerry KEYone will make its first appearance at an event in New York City on June 7th. The next morning in China, the phone will be unveiled again for that market. Even taking the time difference into account, it doesn't appear that the events will be held simultaneously.

The BlackBerry KEYone was known for its physical QWERTY keyboard, and its outstanding battery life. While the keyboard on the sequel appears to have slightly larger keys with a matte finish and a mystery key, the battery life might not be as good. That is due to the more powerful Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform expected to be under the hood, and the smaller capacity 3360mAh battery that supposedly will power the sequel.

The KEY2 will apparently be the first 'Berry to sport a dual camera setup, and it will reportedly carry 6GB of RAM. The display is believed to remain a 4.5-inch LCD panel with a 1080 x 1620 resolution. That works out to an aspect ratio of 3:2.
