BlackBerry KEY2 Specifications

So, the BlackBerry KEY2 has been officially unveiled at an event held in New York. It’s safe to say that BlackBerry didn’t re-invent the wheel when developing a successor to the KeyOne handset from  2017, but did it need to do anything other than tweak the formula at this stage? The KEY2 has a more powerful processor, two times more RAM and storage, and double the cameras when compared to its predecessor. All the while retaining the same 4.5-inch display with 3:2 aspect ratio as well as the all-important physical keyboard, although there is a bump in price to $550/€649/£579. Join us after the break to check out the rest of the specifications for the new BlackBerry KEY2.
