"Although there are many different smartphones available for consumers today, most tend to offer very similar experiences without much distinction from one to the next", said Alain Lejeune, Senior Vice President, TCL Communication & President, BlackBerry Mobile.

BlackBerry says the keyboard is also 20 per cent larger than the keyboard on the KeyOne, and comes with larger, redesigned keys offering a more satisfying click.

The BlackBerry Key2 will retail in the United Kingdom for £579, with USA prices yet to be announced.

Coming to the display, it packs a 4.5-inch (1620 x 1080 pixels) 3:2 display with 433 PPI and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

Regarding how often that happens, Ricciardo said: "I wouldn't say a lot, but we have a pretty good off-track relationship". Mercedes were first out in Q3 and smashed the records, Bottas topping Hamilton in 1:10.857 before Vettel beat that.

- The KEY2 uses the same display panel as past year down to the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection up-top.

The Key2 is also the first BlackBerry to feature a dual-rear camera system, consisting of two 12 megapixel sensors. It has also has a portrait mode and optical superzoom, both features of other manufacturer's flagship phones. There is an 8MP front-facing camera.

In the camera department, BlackBerry Key2 will boast a 12MP + 12MP dual-camera setup at the back with 4K video recording at 30 frames per second and a dual-tone LED flash.

The keyboard has been slightly refined on the KEY2, which is good since that's literally the single defining feature of the phone. Although it looks nearly exactly like the keyboard from the KEYone at first glance, the keyboard on the KEY2 actually has some minor changes. 64GB of internal storage comes standard (128GB optional) and a microSD slot can expand that figure to 2TB. There's a fingerprint scanner that doubles up as the space key and like the KEYone, the device retains the trackpad functionality through its physical keyboard.

BlackBerry's share of the global smartphone market has fallen to virtually zero from a peak of more than half a decade ago. For power, a 3500mAh battery is on board which is rechargeable via the USB-C port equipped with Quick Charge 3.0. Based on supposed BlackBerry KEY2 photos leaked recently by notable reporters like Evan Blass, the upcoming device from TCL will sport a wide bodywork and a notch-less screen.

TCL and BlackBerry executive Alain Lejeune said the Key2 offered something different to the all-screen smartphones now dominating the market. There is also a Speed Key that enables users to generate custom functions and shortcuts to their favorite apps.
