BlackBerry KEYone sequel "Athena" appears on Chinese regulator's site with dual cameras on back

Earlier this month, we showed you some renders allegedly revealing the look of the BlackBerry KEYone sequel codenamed “Athena.” At first glance, this phone appears to be very similar to the current model.

The Essential Phone was a unique device until Apple launched the iPhone X, as many consider the first smartphone to have introduced the notch. Unfortunately, Essential’s phone had one major problem: the camera.

The dual camera simply failed to deliver, while the camera app was a total disaster at launch.

The good news is Essential …
