BlackBerry KEY2 to be officially announced on June 7th
Following the undeniable success of last year’s KEYone, it’s no surprise that a successor would be in the works. Rumours have been rife about a new codename BlackBerry Athena. Those rumours have now been confirmed as the BlackBerry KEY2 following an official tweet from @BBMobile:

Details are still very scarce about the full specifications, however, we don’t really expect much to change. The KEYone had a winning combination of mid-high range specs. The efficient Snapdragon 625 and smaller screen delivered excellent battery life.
We anticipate a similar specification this year, albeit with a bump in the processor to reflect a year’s advancement. There will also likely be a jump in the camera quality. The textured logo in BlackBerry’s image hints that KEY2 may have the rubber backing of the updated “Black Edition” of the KEYone.
Delivering a tweaked version of Android for a few years now, BlackBerry have managed to stay true to their security roots. We’ve talked in the past about the additional lengths they go to to ensure a secure environment. They also pledge to match Google’s security updates.
