Just last month, BlackBerry made a huge announcement in which they stated that they will no longer be making their own phones. Instead the company plans to focus on software and will be looking to license its brand instead, kind of like what Nokia is doing. However the company’s CEO John Chen reassured fans that the QWERTY BlackBerry phones will live on.
Now there have been some rumblings that BlackBerry might still have a device or two up their sleeves and one of those devices is known as “Mercury”, and thanks to a recent sighting on Geekbench, some of the device’s specs have surfaced, although from what we can tell it doesn’t seem like a particularly high-end device.
According to the specs, the Mercury will come with 3GB of RAM and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset. It also appears to come with Android 7.0 Nougat preinstalled which we guess is a good thing. Other than that we’re not sure what we’re looking at in terms of design or the camera department.
In any case word has it that the phone is expected to be launched by the end of the year, and considering we’re already mid-October, we probably won’t have to wait much longer to see what BlackBerry might have for us.
