As the battle between Apple, Google, Huawei, Samsung and more rages on, BlackBerry slips in and insists that their methodology is key — no pun intended — with its latest Twitter teaser.

The tech company, founded in 1999, recently went on the social media platform to announce its latest product offering will be unveiled on June 7 at 10 a.m. EST as “an icon reborn.” The image and tweet both cement its stand as the Key2 — this would coincide as the rumored followup to the KEYone that released last April.

No further information is available as of yet but speculation and renders, like the one seen above, have been circulating that solidify its QWERTY keyboard as a determined feature by the near-two-decade-old electronics company. A headphone jack is also reported as being a featured inclusion, again going against the grain with its omission from current smartphones lately.
