BlackBerry KEY2 unveiling to be live streamed on June 7th; here's when and where you can watch it
This coming Thursday June 7th, BlackBerry Mobile will unveil the BlackBerry KEY2. The device is the sequel to the lone BlackBerry phone that made our underrated list for 2017, and while it didn't sell in the millions, it was popular enough to gain a small but dedicated following. Among the changes we expect to see with the KEY2 is an enhanced physical keyboard with slightly larger keys and a matte finish. There is also a mystery key at the bottom right of the QWERTY keyboard. The biggest change however, is found on the back of the phone where BlackBerry's first dual-camera setup (12MP + 8MP) is mounted.

There are some other differences too, and you can take a look at a pair of KEY2 renders to see for yourself. In front, the 4.5-inch LCD panel (1080 x 1620 resolution, and a 3:2 aspect ratio) extends to the top of the phone, replacing the metal bezel seen on the top of the KEYone. Some changes you can't see, such as the more powerful Snapdragon 660 Mobile Platform under the hood, and the 6GB of RAM inside. That is twice the 3GB of RAM found on the OG model.

When Thursday rolls around, the BlackBerry KEY2 will be unveiled in New York City with the event kicking off at 10am EDT. You can watch it live streamed through BlackBerry Mobile's YouTube channel. All you need to do is click on the sourcelink below at the right time. And if you're busy working, or unable to sneak a peek, don't fret. Just visit us during the day, and we will be more than happy to tell you all about the brand spanking new BlackBerry KEY2.
