The upcoming BlackBerry Mercury with a physical QWERTY keyboard and Android on board is certainly getting one of the weirdest introductions we've seen in recent years. Following many months of leaks about it, TCL showcased the device at CES earlier this month. But here's the twist: even though we already went hands-on with it, its specs are still a mystery. Not to mention pricing or a release date.
So, despite the fact that we know what it looks like already, everything else about it still needs to be properly announced by TCL, the company now making BlackBerry-branded handsets. Thankfully though, that will finally happen later this month in Barcelona, at a pre-MWC event.
BlackBerry's press conference will take place on February 25. At CES TCL officials did tell us that they were aiming for an actual unveiling of the phone at MWC, and it's good to see that's going to pan out after all. The device may be called Mercury, or DTEK70, or even something else - we don't even know that for sure at this point.
According to past leaks and rumors, it should have a 4.5" or so display with 1,620x1,080 resolution, the Snapdragon 821 or 625 at the helm, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 13 MP main camera, and an 8 MP unit for selfies. It will run Android 7.0 Nougat.
