The Blackberry Key2 has been officially revealed. And yes, it has a physical keyboard.

BlackBerry is not only still around, it's announcing its next phone, the BlackBerry Key2, on June 7.

The Key2 is the successor to 2017's BlackBerry KeyOne, a premium Android phone with BlackBerry's signature QWERTY keyboard.

The phone will be announced in New York at 10 a.m. ET. BlackBerry posted the following tweet with details:

A BlackBerry believed to be the Key2 appeared on Chinese regulatory site TENAA. TENAA's listing shows pictures of the rumored device. From the looks of it, it seems like the Key2 could come with dual cameras on the back, while keeping the physical keyboard of the KeyOne. See TENAA's pictures below:
