BlackBerry is getting ready to announce the successor of the KEYone smartphone which is dubbed as BlackBerry KEY2. Recently the BlackBerry KEY2 (aka BlackBerry Athena) was spotted on TENAA certification and now the device has received a couple of certifications. The BlackBerry KEY2 has got WiFi certification from the WiFi Alliance (WFA) and the Bluetooth certification from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG).
The Wi-Fi certification reveals that the BlackBerry KEY2 will support dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n (2.4GHz, 5GHz) capabilities. Sadly, the listing does not show any specifications except that the device will be powered by Android Oreo operating system. The listing carries the certification ID WFA76921 and the date of certification being 7th May 2018. The model listed at Wi-Fi Alliance bears the model number BBF100-6.
The Bluetooth listing also does not reveal anything about the hardware specifications of the smartphone. The listing only reveals that the phone has received Bluetooth certification with version 5.0. The listing reveals the multiple versions of the device exist. BlackBerry BBF100-1, BBF100-2 and BBF100-6 have been received Bluetooth certifications.
As per earlier leaks the phone would have a USB-C port for charging and a headphone jack on the top. Rumours also suggest that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 660 chipset with 6GB RAM and 64GB of onboard storage.
