The BlackBerry KEYone is the Android phone that comes with the iconic equipped with the company's physical keyboard is what it is in previous years.
Not much is known about the BlackBerry KEY2 at this point. It is not even clear if, like its predecessor, it will have a physical keyboard or not. However, the consensus is probably one. Simply with the name of the device, that makes a lot of sense.
The Big Announcement
BlackBerry took things to Twitter to make the big announcement that reborn the word with the slogan "an icon." 1
It does not reveal much apart from time, revealing the date and place of the event. The tweet was also posted only with emojis – a key, the number 2 and a pair of eyes.

The Chinese regulator TENAA may already have revealed what Blackberry is all about. According to the listing, the BlackBerry KEY2 will retain the physical keyboard and provide a dual-camera configuration on the back.
What's under the hood, it could be a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 1,080 x 1,620 and run on Android 8.1 Oreo right off the bat. A 3,360 mAh battery will keep the lights on. It also offers 6GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage, which can be expanded with a microSD card up to 128GB. There is not a word yet about the processor.
The Bottom Line
In February, Blackberry said it's "staying here" with the goal of getting between 3 and 5 percent market share of the premium smartphone scene over the coming years.
The sale of the BlackBerry KEYone was not very popular and the number of subscribers was less than one million. Nevertheless, the company called it a success, but not in terms of sales, but in the availability of the device to consumers.
Now with the upcoming BlackBerry KEY2, it looks as if the company has achieved its goals on the demographic physical keyboard fan. If things do not work, it will always have its security services to sit back on.
