First Look - Blackberry "Mercury", a Ride in 2017

When it comes to mobile, Blackberry is nothing less than a Legend. the company matches their titans and now at CES 2017 BlackBerry is hoping to announce a new smartphone still with quality and enhanced security like its previous DTEK60 and DTEK50.

Though the company have not actually released the specs, price, features, launch date or even the official name like the DTEK series, many still recognize and believe this smartphone as the rumored BlackBerry "Mercury." So, that's what we're calling it. It's a solid metal phone that fits the overall size mold of a modern slab smartphone, and manages to fit in a full hardware keyboard on the bottom without the Priv-like slider.
One of the biggest thing that made the Mercury stand out is how BlackBerry decided the whole new design. After seeing somewhat simple repurposed hardware designs in the DTEK50 and DTEK60, it looks refreshing to see an altogether different design and yet still familiar to BlackBerry fans. It is a throwback to Blackberry classic design
It comes with a nice and well-defined 2.5D curvature near the sides to give it some extra visual style. Underneath that, is a trio of standard capacitive buttons. At first glance, it looks a kind of redundant, given the qwerty keyboard with an impressive Priv keyboard scrolling gestures.
Putting various bits and pieced together and like I said, Blackberry has not released he specs and the official name. But we might be looking at the device with a 1080p resolution on the panel, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 13MP, plus 8MP camera setup and perhaps the Snapdragon 821 SoC,
But, a certain rumor did also hint at a more mid-range Snapdragon 625 chip and an unconventional 1620 x 1080 panel resolution. The Mercury may also hold the distinction of being the first BlackBerry smartphone to be run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

With that been said - Thanks for Reading
