Hashtag Trending – Facebook removes trending news, Apple’s upcoming WWDC18, BlackBerry’s new Key2 smartphone

There's nothing left to the imagination as images, price and specifications leak ahead of the BlackBerry KEY2 launch tomorrow.

And now we have some more solid information about the upcoming successor to the KEYone from Blackberry. I'm pretty awful at waiting until the last minute to do that, but it should go without saying, the blogs are about to light up with lots of BlackBerry KEY2 news and content and you'll undoubtedly want to stay tuned for all the latest! With only a few days to go before its official announcement on June 7, we are now getting more renders of the handset. Above the keyboard, there is a touchscreen display, along with capacitive buttons.

For shutterbugs, dual rear cameras with a combination of 12-megapixel primary sensor and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor are expected.

From the images, we can see that the handset will feature a square-ish screen design as opposed to the elongated screens that are prevalent on smartphones in the market everywhere. Yet another important change is that the fingerprint sensor is integrated into the spacebar of the Qwerty keyboard. Renders were also posted highlighting the touch and type form factor of the Blackberry KEY2, similar to its predecessor. The manufacturer of the phone, TCL, has upgraded the Key 2 to a Snapdragon 660 from the Snapdragon 625 processor. It has two storage options, 64GB and 128GB, expandable up to 256GB through an SD card.

In fact, we even know the likely price, as in a separate tweet Blass has claimed that it will cost $649 / £579 (around AU$1,015). The smartphone is said to be backed by a 3360mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and runs on Android 8.1 (Oreo). There's also a USB-C port on the bottom of the phone and a headphone jack up top.

All is set to be revealed on June 7 United States time so we won't have long to wait before we hear the official details, as well as how the new keyboard will function.
