BlackBerry KEYone Successor Reaches TENAA; Leaked Live Images Surface

BlackBerry KEYone Successor Reaches TENAA; Leaked Live Images Surface”

The BlackBerry KeyOne was released a year ago which means that assuming that BlackBerry and TCL are on a schedule that plans for annual releases, a successor to the KeyOne is overdue.

Information on the rumored follow-up to the BlackBerry KeyOne is starting to increase in volume, with the latest leaks seeing the keyboard-toting handset head through China's TENAA certification agency as well as appearing in some revealing spy shots.

BlackBerry Athena has surfaced on TENAA with model number BBF100-4, which signals the imminent arrival of the smartphone.

The images, that have appeared on both the Crackberry forums and Weibo, show a redesigned keyboard, which looks similar to that of the BlackBerry Passport. Besides, the smartphone offers hybrid dual sim, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a USB Type-C port.

The phone has an improved design and we can see from the image that the spacebar still doubles as a fingerprint scanner. BlackBerry is long overdue a 2018 smartphone and by the looks of it, it's nearly here. The rear will be manufactured using plastic material coupled with a rubberised pattern to provide adequate grip. It builds on the nostalgia of QWERTY devices that BlackBerry devices were known for.

BlackBerry Athena is expected to be fueled by a 3360mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging support.

According to recent rumors and leaks, the successor to the KeyOne will feature a 4.5-inch 1620×1080 pixels display and will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 which will be backed by 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. On the front, the smartphone houses an 8-megapixel front-facing selfie camera. The KeyOne was launched in India which also indicate that its successor won't skip the launch here. Now it has been found listed on the TENAA mobile phone benchmarking website.
