Kevin Abstract - ARIZONA BABY Music Album Reviews

The BROCKHAMPTON star’s latest solo album is an often powerful document by a queer artist who has weathered life’s bruises.
In a move inspired by Shia LaBeouf’s bemusing catalog of durational work, Kevin Abstract recently endured 10 hours on a treadmill on a suburban street of his hometown, Corpus Christi, Tex. While running, the BROCKHAMPTON singer and rapper multi-tasked: He took selfies, signed sneakers, posed with a baby, and mumbled along to the chorus of his recent single, the yearning gay love song “Baby Boy.” Abstract vaguely told one fan that the performance was to teach empathy—indeed, you could interpret it as an allegory for the upstream battle to make it out of suburbia for so many kids—but that didn’t save it from feeling like a stunt.

BlackBerry Key2 Release Date, Price and Specs

BlackBerry Key2 Release Date, Price and Specs
There is a new BlackBerry on the way in 2018 and it's now confirmed it'll be called the Key2. The return of BlackBerry was a surprising one, but a welcome one to many. It turns out that the KeyOne was more than a nostalgia trip and actually a quite capable Android smartphone.


BlackBerry Mobile tweeted a teaser confirming the name of the phone and the time and place of the launch

If you want a physical keyboard on a slim, secure Android device, it is literally your only option. Until the sequel, of course. It’s been codenamed Athena for a while, but surely it’ll be the Key2.

Here is everything you want to know about the BlackBerry Key2.

When is the BlackBerry KeyTwo release date?
BlackBerry Mobile confirmed the name and launch date of Key2 in the below tweet:
The KeyOne launched in London in April 2017, so it'll be a full 14 month gap till the Key2 is unveiled in New York on 7 June.

'An icon reborn' is a ballsy tagline if it's referencing the KeyOne, which was a good but hardly iconic phone despite our good review. Presumably it's a reference to BlackBerry in general, as the leaks show the Key2 will look exactly like the KeyOne.
How much will the BlackBerry KeyTwo cost?
This is harder to call. The standard KeyOne retails for £499/$499, but with new hardware may come a higher price.

We expect the Key2 to cost at least £599/$599 given the probable hike in internal specs.

What are the rumoured specs of the BlackBerry KeyTwo?
Specific features and specifications have been hard to come by but what we do have are leaks of renders and also some real-world photos. Take a look:

Yep, it looks an awful lot like the KeyOne, particularly the later Black Edition.

There’s still a long display, keyboard, textured back, USB-C port, headphone jack and capacitive navigation keys.

But there are some changes too. The keys look slightly larger and this time they are matte, unlike the clear shiny keys on the KeyOne. There’s also far less silver trim, a BlackBerry logo on the spacebar which may well still be the fingerprint reader, although this is not on the photo leak, only on the render.

There are also dual cameras on the rear, with a slight bump. BlackBerry has never been a bastion of mobile photography, but any upgrade to the passable but not great KeyOne camera is welcome to us.

The picture of the AirPods is supposedly taken on the new device, hence the watermark reading 'BlackBerry Key2', a now confirmed accurate clue to the branding of the new phone.

On the photo you will also notice a grid on the button to the right of the spacebar and symbol key. On a BlackBerry this is usually a shift key, but this may be a shortcut key to the dial pad or even app drawer. Or it’s a fake! Leaks, eh.

Of course, this is all the work of TCL, a company licensing the BB name rather than BlackBerry itself. But BlackBerry does work on the software, and we are hoping for Android Oreo on the Key2, an upgrade that has not yet hit the KeyOne.

We’ll keep our eyes peeled for the latest Key2 updates and have a full review of the phone upon its release.

Should I buy the Nokia 7.1?
The Nokia 7.1 is a familiar mid-range phone for the end of 2018: a notch, big bottom chin and dual cameras. But these cameras are pretty good, and the display is lovely.Its build quality is above average though, and with Android One on board and decent performance it’s an excellent mid-range phone with the advantage of three years of guaranteed security updates.
