Last month, BlackBerry launched the BlackBerry KEY2 smartphone. This one is the successor smartphone of the BlackBerry KEYone. The Canadian manufacturer is focused on bringing resources to their users along with top-grade security enhancements. However, the BlackBerry KEYone is still running on Android Nougat version and the phone starts receiving first Android Oreo in North America on June 28 but that didn’t happen for all.
