The sliding QWERTY keyboard is hidden under the screen.
BlackBerry Torch 2 is compatible with 3G HSPA, a standard that allows speeds up to 14.4 Mbps for internet connection type mobiles. The internal memory totals eight GB and it may be expanded by adding a MicroSD memory card.

The camera retains the 5 megapixels from the previous model, but receives a 720p support for recording.
