How to watch the BlackBerry Key2 launch”

BlackBerry will also be hosting pop-up stores across cities like New York City, a la OnePlus, so potential buyers can come and experience the KEY2. It uses Series 7 aluminium for its frame and a soft touch back with a new diamond pattern. BlackBerry has also added in portrait mode so that you can add a blurry background to your photos if you'd like.

To most people, BlackBerry might seem like a part of ancient history given its status as one of the pioneers within the smartphone business but don't get it wrong: the brand is still alive.

For changes over last year's KeyOne, BlackBerry highlights an improved physical keyboard with Speed Key, which allows you to utilize shortcuts and gestures to open apps regardless of what screen you're on.

Golden State Warriors: 3 keys for Game 3 vs. Cavaliers
In Smith's 14-year career he has become a lot of things. "I'm hopeful he can play, if not tomorrow then in game four". Not to say that Smith is always right, but he does have people very close to the game whispering in his air.

TCL unveiled the BlackBerry KEY2, which runs on Alphabet Inc.'s widely used Android operating system, amid tensions between Washington and Beijing over the sale of Chinese telecommunications equipment in the United States. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor with 6GB RAM. If you need additional storage, you can pop a microSD card into the KEY2. There's also a new button called the Speed Key, which acts as a shortcut button to quickly switch between apps.

The gadget has a 4.5 inch IPS LCD display with a 1620*1080p resolution, 434ppi pixel density, an aspect ratio of 3:2 and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 level protection. Even the keyboard gets a new finish on top (which already looks like an improvement). Battery life is up to two days with a feature that follows your charging habits and learns to when to prompt you for a recharge to keep the phone running through a meeting or flight. The rear camera is capable of shooting 4K videos at 30fps and 1080p videos at 60fps. If the microphone is triggered by an app, the phone will give a warning - a clear appeal to consumers who may be anxious by stories about virtual assistants like Google's Alexa eavesdropping on them.

The KEY2 has dual 12MP rear cameras, better image stabilization and faster autofocus.
