The brief 25-second teaser doesn’t reveal much about the phone, but it does give us a few key talking points. Firstly, there’s the new design which is clearly apparent through the video. There’s a new texture on the back of the device, a dark metal frame, and refreshed buttons. Even the keyboard gets a new finish on top (which already looks like an improvement).
Further, the video confirms that BlackBerry is hopping on the dual-camera bandwagon with the Key2, but it’s unclear what it intends to use the setup for.
Lastly, there’s a brief emphasis on a new key added to the device’s keyboard. It looks like it could be an app drawer shortcut, but the functionality is unknown right now. Clearly, though, it’s going to be a focus of this new smartphone.
Again, the Key2’s unveiling will take place at 7am PT / 10am ET. You can either watch it here or in the embedded video below.
