Blackberry KEY2 is the next smartphone from the company that we are all set to get later this week. The event is scheduled for June 7 and will take place in the New York City. And now images of the smartphone has been leaked by Evan Blass from VentureBeat. Blass tweeted the image of BlackBerry KEY2 on his handle that shows all the different angles of the BlackBerry KEY2.

The BlackBerry KEY2 is the successor of the KEYOne and the design matches the features that were noticed in the teaser that BlackBerry had posted a little while back. The BlackBerry KEY2 is seen sporting a dual-rear camera setup with an LED flash.

The back of the BlackBerry KEY2 also seems to have distinct diamond pattern for added grip for holding the smartphone. On the side, there is a power / sleep button, the volume rocker and a third button. This button could either be convenience key that we’ve seen on the KEYOne that lets you trigger a specific app or speed dial a contact, or it could be a dedicated camera shutter button.

The KEY2, just like KEYOne, will come with a touchscreen display and a physical QWERTY keyboard at the bottom. However, the images also shows off a mystery button on the bottom right, which is likely to be a dedicated app drawer button.

From what we have come across so far, the KEY2 will sport a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 1620×1080 pixels, and an aspect ratio of 3:2. Under the hood will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset, with 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage.

For shutterbugs, dual rear cameras with a combination of 12-megapixel primary sensor and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor are expected. But there is no word on whether the secondary camera will be a depth sensor or will come with a wide-angle lens or will be a monochrome sensor. We will have to wait till the official announcement to know more.
