The launch event will begin at 19:30 IST. The metal frets between each row of keys have also been removed.
The new device, which includes a physical keyboard under a 4.5 inch screen and runs the Android operating system updates the first BlackBerry Key released a year ago. The 3:2 aspect ratio is mainly because the smartphone will have a physical keyboard making it a large device to hold. There are 52 customizable shortcuts and the fingerprint sensor is built into the spacebar. For business, then, it ticks all the boxes, but the Key2 is also the first BlackBerry blower to feature a dual rear camera setup.
The processor under the hood is the octa-core Snapdragon 660, which may not be as powerful as the Snapdragon 710, but it is still a very capable mid-range chipset. Both variants have expandable storage support up to 256GB.
If want know everything about the BlackBerry KEY2, don't forget to tune in tomorrow at 10 am EDT. The Key2 has one 12MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture, dual PDAF (Phase Detect Auto Focus) while the other 12MP sensor has f/2.6 aperture and PDAF.
The rear camera set-up consists of two 12MP lenses, coupled with a 8MP front-facing camera. It packs a 3360mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support. The KEY2 also runs Android 8.1 Oreo and comes with BlackBerry's DTEK security suite. Rather than the chunky, rounded frame of the KeyOne, the Key2 has a slimmer, more square appearance that gives it a much classier aesthetic.
