BlackBerry Mercury teased again: a second snippet of an official presentation video shows us more
Wanting to stir some excitement, TCL has even teased us with a snippet from the official promo for the smartphone — a 4-second video that gave us just a tiny glimpse at its keyboard. Now, we get another one, and a bit of a better look at the device.
So, we can see a very clear metal design with rounded corners. It's cool to see how the keyboard is curved at the ends, seamlessly meeting the phone's frame. The data port at the bottom appears to be of the USB Type-C variety. We do see two speaker grilles, but that could be just for symmetry — no confirmation on stereo sound capabilities yet. Before the video fades to black, we are shown the volume rocker and power button, both residing on the phone's right side, and we see what appears to be capacitive buttons under the screen — the Android navigation controls.
The rumor mill says that the BlackBerry “Mercury” will have a 1080 x 1620 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, 3 GB of RAM, a fingerprint scanner embedded into the — get this — spacebar key, 32 GB of on-board storage, and a massive 3,400 mAh battery. The operating system on board is expected to be Android Nougat, with BlackBerry's own tools and apps pre-loaded on the device.
Well, it's just mere hours before we find out all the details, stay tuned!
