TCL has been teasing a new device launch over the past week. In case you didn’t hear, it’s now going to be exclusively making and selling devices under the BlackBerry label. The Canadian company will no longer be making its own handsets. TCL’s first flagship BlackBerry since this deal is going to be unveiled at CES 2017 this week. An image of the device, known as BlackBerry Mercury right now, has been leaked online today.
TCL itself shared a teaser of the upcoming device recently. The teaser confirmed that it’s going to have a full QWERTY keyboard that BlackBerry handsets have always been famous for. It hasn’t confirmed anything about the device other than this.
As far as the handset’s specifications are concerned, rumor has it that the BlackBerry Mercury will feature a 4.6 inch full HD display with a 2 GHz Snapdragon 625 processor under the hood coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage.
It may also feature an 18 megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash and an 8 megapixel front camera. Aside from a 3,400mAh battery the handset may run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
Pricing and availability information for the BlackBerry Mercury will be confirmed later today when the BlackBerry and TCL announcement takes place at 11 AM PST.
