BlackBerry KEY2 almost ready for prime time, gets all required certifications
It looks like a successor to the BlackBerry KEYone is a sure thing judging by the flow of leaks regarding a new BlackBerry-branded smartphone. Although the name of the device remains a mystery until it's officially revealed, rumor has it TCL has decided to call it BlackBerry KEY2.

Furthermore, a live picture of the KEY2 leaked online last month showing the same square-shaped design and the full QWERTY keyboard. Well, it appears that the phone has been given a model number – BBF100-6, and listed at Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG.

The two regulatory agencies provide new devices with the required certifications and it looks like the KEY2 received both of them, which puts it one step closer to launch.

BlackBerry KEY2 is likely to belong to the mid- to high tier and should be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal memory. Keep in mind that some of the rumored specs may have changed since the Bluetooth documents show the phone has gone through no less than 9 hardware revisions.
