Specs for BlackBerry KEYone sequel (BBF100-1) discovered on manufacturer's documents?
The BlackBerry KEYone appears to be the most successful new BlackBerry model in some time. It certainly has everything that a BlackBerry user would hope for in a phone, including a well designed physical QWERTY keyboard featuring a fingerprint scanner embedded in the space bar. Thanks to a power sipping Snapdragon 625 chipset and a 3505mAh battery, the KEYone offers long-lasting battery life that will keep the phone running without requiring that mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

So how do you follow up on a handset that has caught the imagination of the public like the BlackBerry KEYone has? Simple. You create a sequel. And according to a User Agent profile found in a TCL document, a follow-up to the KEYone (perhaps the KEYtwo?) is being prepped. With a model number of BBF100-1, the BlackBerry KEYone sequel follows the original KEYone (BBB100-1) and the all touch BlackBerry Motion (BBD100-1).

The UAprof reveals that the KEYone sequel will be powered by the Snapdragon 660 chipset, which is equipped with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 512 GPU. While the size of the screen is unknown (the KEYone carries a 4.5-inch display) the resolution of the new model will match the original's 1080 x 1620. That works out to an aspect ratio of 3:2.

Like the original model, the KEYone sequel will be built by TCL. And if you want a clue that the BBF100-1 is getting closer to being unveiled, keep your eyes peeled for some special deals involving the KEYone. BlackBerry Mobile will no doubt be interested in clearing out as much inventory of the original device as it can before the sequel is put on sale.
