The device could also be part of the Android Enterprise Program like its predecessor, but we will only know more about it once the company unveils the device next month. The unveiling will take place in NY at 10am on the aforementioned date. The company had launched the BlackBerry KEYone, a premium Android handset with BlackBerry's signature QWERTY keypad, last year.

We've heard rumors and speculation about a new BlackBerry phone called the Key2 and now it's (just about) official - BlackBerry has sent out invitations to a special launch event in NY on June 7, and mentions the Key2 by name. Now, the BlackBerry KEY2 appears ready to be its successor.

BlackBerry tweeted about the launch of the smartphone with a poster that mentions "An Icon Reborn". The Blackberry KEY2 stopped by TENAA and also received Bluetooth SIG and Wi-Fi Alliance certifications, which hinted at an announcement coming soon. This is contrary to the back panel on the BlackBerry KEYone that didn't have a textured design above the rear camera setup. On the top, there will be a 3.5mm audio jack, while at the bottom, there might be a USB Type-C port. Further information also revealed that the device supports 4G LTE and comes with dual-SIM slots. The phone sports 4.5-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, featuring a resolution of 1620 x 1080 pixels. Other reports suggest that it's going to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor with 6GB of RAM and possibly even a dual camera which would be the first for a BlackBerry-branded handset.
