The Key2 is the successor to the touchscreen-keyboard hybrid Key that was launched past year.
Although the KEY2 will be available for buying in the West this month, in global markets (including in India), the phone will be available for buying in July.
No specific release date was given but expect to see the Key2 on shelves before the end of June.
In fact, the Key2 is the first BlackBerry with a dual rear camera.
BlackBerry boasts that the Key2 has also been approved under Google's business-focused Android Enterprise Recommended programme.
Storage is a choice between 64 and 128GB, while an SD card slot is also included.
The new Key2 will cost £579 and for that users get a device running the latest version of Android, as well as a 4.5-inch touchscreen and a keyboard BlackBerry says is "intelligent". The lens is assisted by dual-tone LED flash and features HDR, Scan, Private Capture, Dual Phase detection and Auto Focus.
"BlackBerry phones are the world's most secure Android smartphones". But there is a missed-logic here as the more display space is only needed if the device is primarily focused on the touch-based interface, and this is where BlackBerry Mobile has been smart as its interpretation of Android is not exclusively touch-based.
Compared to the KeyOne, the keys offered on the Key2 are 20 per cent bigger. This includes a more compact chassis and a re-positioned convenience key, that's now located on the right along with the power and volume rocker.
BlackBerry KEY2 is built around an aluminium alloy frame with a form factor of 151.4mm x 71.8mm x 8.5mm and a textured back for better grip.
- The USP of the KEY2, still remains to be, its full-scale physical QWERTY that lies in continuation with the touch screen. There's also a new Speed Key which lets you access any actions you've assigned to one of the 52 available keys from anywhere on the phone. At the bottom of the display are three capacitive menu buttons, and the fingerprint sensor rests on the space bar.
The KEY2 also introduced the new Speed Key - a shortcut key that gives users instant access to the apps, contact and functions they use the most. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
In a year when most Android phones are hard to distinguish from each other, the BlackBerry Key2 does at least offer something different - its keyboard, security protections and impressive battery life will certainly appeal to a certain niche of users, but how big that niche is remains to be seen.
