BlackBerry is back again with another phone with a physical keyboard. It will announce the Key2, the successor to the surprisingly decent KeyOne at a big launch event in New York.

Here’s how to watch and see if it’s a phone you’d consider buying.

When is the BlackBerry Key2 launch?

The BlackBerry Key2 launch is at 10am NYC time on 7 June 2018.

This means it’ll start at 3pm UK time on 7 June 2018.

How to watch the BlackBerry Key2 launch

We have embedded the official BlackBerry live stream for the Key2 event at the top of this very webpage, so you can watch it there. It’ll go live on the day.

If you’re having trouble, you can also watch it here.

What to expect from the BlackBerry Key2

We liked the KeyOne, but a phone with a physical keyboard is a niche product in 2018. The company TCL is actually the manufacturer of BlackBerry phones now, as it licenses the brand name – but for all intents and purposes, this is a proper BlackBerry.

The video also clearly shows dual cameras, so there will no doubt be portrait mode photography. This will probably put the price up, and we also hope for an improved processor and RAM combo.

We’ll have a full review of the Key2 very soon.
