BlackBerry Key2: Release Date, Price, Specs and Rumors
TLC announced that it will be unveiling its BlackBerry Key2 model on its upcoming NYC pop-up showroom event and will share further details soon. With that being said, what can we expect from it?
When Is The Smartphone Coming?
Last May 30, 2018, TLC made an announcement via Twitter regarding its upcoming NYC pop-up showroom which will be held from June 8-9th (10:00 AM – 7:00 PM). In their post they said:
“Be among the first in the world to experience the all-new Blackberry #K2 June 8-9 at our NYC pop-up showroom. We’ll share more details soon! #TeamBlackBerry”
How Much Will It Cost?
According to the Value Walk, BlackBerry needs to be careful in putting a price tag on its Key2 model. The article notes that in case the company does decide to put on an expensive price tag on its latest model, it must at the very least be able to compete with the latest upcoming Apple and Samsung smartphones or it will draw potential customers away. As for the expected price range, a sub price of around $500 might be acceptable.
What Are The Specs/Features?
In an article published at Pocket Now, it reports that the BlackBerry Key2 model will be similar to its predecessor on the outside but different on the inside. Based on various sources, it will have:
- A Snapdragon 660 processor
- 6 GB Ram
- 3360 mAh battery
- Two rear cameras
- An 8MP front camera
- A 4.5-inch display with a 1620 x 1080 screen resolution
Will There Be Other Products As Well?
Last May 18, 2018, there a benchmark sheet of a BlackBerry BBE100-2 model was spotted on the web along with the Key2. Based on its specs, it seems a bit underpowered compared to the latter and some say that this is probably the “cheaper” version.
