The QWERTY keyboard of the KEY2 may also support gestures and it is likely to feature a multitouch-supported display. The phone will also have a 3.5mm audio jack and USB Type-C.

Meanwhile, other leaked images had suggested that the KEY2 will have a plastic build. There are speculations that KEY2 will support 4G LTE and dual-SIM support.
