Hashtag Trending – Facebook removes trending news, Apple’s upcoming WWDC18, BlackBerry’s new Key2 smartphone

BlackBerry's key phrase for its new smartphone is "An Icon Reborn", so it'll be interesting to hear the reasoning behind that.

BlackBerry KEY2 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC with 8 Kryo cores up to 2.2 GHz, backed up by 6 Gb of RAM, and 64 or 128 Gb of storage capacity expandable via microSD card. The selfie camera of the smartphone will have an 8MP sensor.

Going by the leaked specifications, it appears the BlacBerry Key2 will be an incremental upgrade over its predecessor, which was also announced around the same time past year.

White House says still pursuing China trade sanctions - Economy
The White House statement said the president had been "updated" on several steps following the March release by U.S. A United States negotiating team is in China, preparing for the next round of trade and investment talks.

As per an earlier leak, the BlackBerry Key2 also retains classic QWERTY keypad, and will have its the top bezel replaced by glass instead of metal found on the KeyOne. On the front, the BlackBerry KEY2 will feature an 8-megapixel camera for taking clearer selfies and an enhanced video calling experience. The KEY2 will also feature a dedicated keyboard button which we're eager to try how it works. Along with that, the right side of the frame looks like it'll be home to an extra button along with the volume rocker and power/wake button.

Leaked images of the phone show it with a subdued gray and black appearance with perhaps a slightly more spacious keyboard layout. As per the details revealed in the teaser, BlackBerry's new flagship device could come with a dual lens camera and a pre-installed Privacy Shade and a new app drawer shortcut. Also, while I have your attention, Russell Holly wrote up a fantastic article on Android Central covering why he is excited about the BlackBerry KEY2, be sure to give that a look! In terms of connectivity, the handset has FM radio, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, its price in India was steep and devices like the OnePlus 5T offered more value for money.

But thanks to serial leaker Evan Blass, we pretty much already know what to expect.
