BlackBerry KEYone successor rumors ramp up thanks to GeekBench results

UPDATE - Since posting this, the folks at Telefoonabonnement, the original source of the news, have reached out to me and shared the actual GeekBench result link, which can be viewed here.

Since October, there have been rumors of a KEYone successor floating around. The basis of those rumors is a profile listing found on the TCL website which listed a device thus far known as BBF100-1 featuring a Snapdragon 660 with a 1620x1080 display and a physical keyboard. Based on that info, many folks have dubbed it a KEYone successor or 'KEYtwo'.

Now, a new image suggested to be from benchmark site GeekBench has appeared adding a few more additional details. Specifically that the BBF100-1, whatever it ends up being named, will feature Android 8.0 Oreo and come loaded with 6GB of RAM. I love rumors as much as the next person, but there are a few reasons to hold back excitement here.
