Blackberry is speedily launching new Android Smartphones. After releasing PRIV and DTEK50, the company is said to be working on DTEK60 though it is unofficial. This new smartphone is called Blackberry Mercury and it might be preinstalled with Android Nougat. Blackberry Mercury is powered with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB RAM,18-megapixel primary camera and 8-megapixel front camera. Rumors are that Blackberry Mercury could have a qwerty physical keyboard though it is not confirmed. Blackberry Mercury would be the third phone to run on Android Nougat after Pixel phones and LG V20.
As Blackberry had already made an official announcement that it will stop making hardware for its phones and will only provide software for the new devices. This Blackberry Mercury smartphone might launch under the collaboration of Blackberry and Alcatel company. After looking at the specifications it can be said that this handset might prove to be a hit in the market.
Not much has been revealed about Blackberry Mercury apart from it’s specifications. It is still unknown how far Blackberry Mercury had been developed. Blackberry PRIV and DTEK50 were not able to generate good response from the users and its sales were inadequate. Blackberry Mercury might be launched in the next year as DTEK60 is still to be launch and the launch date of Mercury will become clear after that. Let’s just hope that after the official launch of Blackberry Mercury the company will be able to bring back its lost reputation.
