A few months ago, the once-top mobile company announced their major comeback. And since then, Blackberry spent a considerable amount of time teasing their new ‘Mercury’ model. Though no official statement was released by the phone maker to when it will be released and what exactly are the specifications included in it, many remained to be excited for its arrival. But just recently, its specs were leaked online by renowned mobile leaker, Ronald Quandt.
In a series of Tweets he posted on his Twitter account, Ronald revealed Mercury’s specs and its fairly resembles the camera quality that Google Pixel has. It means that the Mercury will have a 12mp Sony IMX378 resolution with 4k video support and an 8MP Samsung S5K4H8/Omnivision OV8856 front camera. Aside from that, he also backed up fellow leaker Evan Blass’s claim from several months ago and confirmed that the new Mercury handset will run on Snapdragon 625 chipset.
It is also rumored to have a 4.5 inch dual-curved display, which is still smaller than most smart phones available in the market. Mercury is also said to be packed with a 3GB worth of RAM and a 32GB Internal Memory. The Blackberry’s new phone is expected to run on the latest Android Nougat software.
The mobile company also announced recently that the Mercury will be formally introduced on the upcoming Mobile World Congress that will be held in Barcelona, Spain. And as a part of their promotion, the company decided to post a GIF of the new device and some very important details.
Blackberry also revealed not so long ago that they’ve acquired a partnership with famous Chinese tech company TCL to produce the units of their new handset. Ronald’s claims will be proven true or false once the February 29 MWC takes place.
