BlackBerry Mercury

BlackBerry is BackBerry! The last time the company put its research in motion toward an Android phone, the result was the mostly ignored Priv. But an Android phone with a keyboard is an idea worth pursuing. So here comes BlackBerry Mercury, the first collaboration between BlackBerry and its new masters at TCL, the folks behind Alcatel phones.

Along with its hardware keyboard, the BlackBerry Mercury will support all Android apps. It has a USB-C port and 3GB of RAM. Those are confirmed details. Rumors also say the phone will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 8MP and 18MP cameras, and a 3400mAh battery. We should know the whole truth pretty soon. Maybe the smartphone world will fall back in love with BlackBerry. How crazy would that be.
