BlackBerry KEYone successor (KEYtwo) appears on GeekBench with 6GB of RAM?
At the end of October, we told you about a potential sequel to the very popular BlackBerry KEYone. Appearing on a User Agent profile with the model number BBF100-1, the KEYone sequel (KEYtwo?) appears to be powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset. The display (with an unknown screen size) will have a 1080 x 1620 resolution for an aspect ratio of 3:2. The follow up device continues to offer an outstanding physical QWERTY keyboard and above average battery life.

Today, a benchmark test was discovered on the Geekbench website that mentions the sequel's model number. Called Qualcomm BBF100-1, the phone is powered by the aforementioned Snapdragon 660 chipset, which includes an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 512 GPU. According to the benchmark test, this would be the first 'Berry to carry 6GB of RAM inside. There is one major problem. There doesn't seem to be a legitimate Geekbench test result for model BBF100-1, which would seem to indicate that this benchmark test is a hoax. However, Dutch website TelefoonAbonnement says that the Geekbench test is legitimate, and that a bug affecting Geekbench is preventing the test result from appearing on the latter's site.

Whether the benchmark test with the single-core score of 1532 and the multi-core score of 4185 is legit, the popularity of the KEYone does seem to have owners of the device salivating at the mere thought of a sequel. We are hoping to discover a new BlackBerry smartphone ready, willing and able to hold the job as the sequel to the most popular BlackBerry handset to appear in ages.

Even though I have my doubts about the legitimacy of a 6 gig RAM sequel to the BlackBerry KEYᵒⁿᵉ, I do know that when a sequel to the KEYᵒⁿᵉ is released, I’m going to snatch it right up! The KEYᵒⁿᵉ is the best handset available on the market, IMO. Suits all of needs, and ticks all of the boxes for what’s important to me in a Smartphone.

I agree Keyone is the most unique smartphone out there in the market. I wish they would have at least updated their priv to nougat the phone was superb and could have easily handle the update pretty easily.

So? What's your point, if you have one?

And the KEYtwo will most assuredly crush the iPhone X where it counts most: battery life. Just like the KEYᵒⁿᵉ does. Enjoy being chained to a wall.

Did you make this blanket statement because you’re not a fan of the X since they don’t even compete with each other? Those in the mobile community would expect any phone with a SD 600 series processor to have an advantage in battery life since that’s its main strong point.

I made my “blanket statement” in response to this troll because it’s true. And where have I ever said that I’m not a fan of the iPhone X? Newsflash: I use Apple products, and have owned almost every iteration of the iPhone up to and including the 6s plus, and currently own an iPad Pro. Did you respond to me and not the troll who is trying to stir up trouble because he’s an iOS user like you?

If the KeyTwo is on it’s way, please update the design and make it more streamlined. Maybe the design of the Blackberry Motion but with a pkb. If they have ois on the camera, headphone jack on the bottom, glass back and a $499 price tag, then I may be tempted to go back to android. The way prices are going, I’m stepping away from flagships.

The KEYtwo will be less than other flagships are, just like the KEYᵒⁿᵉ. Personally, I love the design of the KEYᵒⁿᵉ. I like the heft and thickness, and prefer the soft-textured back, but to each his/her own.

Please bring the on screen nav keys and NO capacitive ones. If possible, reduce the bezels and give bigger screen about 5" in same footprint (on screen nav keys will again help here).
