BlackBerry KEYone’s Successor with SD660 SoC & 6GB RAM Spotted Online
The Blackberry KEYone is one of the best Blackberry devices we have seen in the recent years. It is manufactured by the China-based TCL communications which might also unveil the Palm branded smartphones in 2018. Continuing the BlackBerry’s legacy, the KEYone sports a touchscreen along with a capacitive keyboard. While we are seeing leaks about the KEYone’s successor from the last couple of months, now the device is listed on Geekbench as Qualcomm BBF100-1.
The specifications revealed by the benchmark listing are same as mentioned by the earlier leaks. It will come powered by the Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor that uses in-house Kryo cores. The processor comes coupled with Adreno 512 GPU and supports the latest Bluetooth 5.0 and Quick Charge 4.0 technologies. As of now, the Snapdragon 660 SoC is only limited to the Chinese market.
While there is no source, the successor to the KEYone might also be limited to the Chinese market. Instead of the upgrading the specifications, the device might also be launched as a new Blackberry device with upgrades in other departments as well. If that comes out true, then the successor to the KEYone might be named as KEYtwo. While the original KEYone came with 3GB/4GB of RAM, this upcoming device will be featuring 6GB of RAM.
The listing also confirmed the device to run on latest Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. As seen on the KEYone, its successor also sports a Full HD (1620 x 1080 pixels) display with 3:2 aspect ratio. We will also be seeing the QWERTY keypad beneath the display and will most be touch sensitive. There is no information about the other details of the device. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
