BlackBerry Mercury surfaces on Geekbench with Snapdragon 625 CPU, 3GB RAM and Android Nougat 7.0
Back in July, a report suggested that BlackBerry is working on three Android smartphones codenamed Neo, Argon and Mercury. Out of the three, Neon (DTEK 50) is already on sale in select countries, while the flagship Snapdragon 820 powered Argon (DTEK 60) is expected to be officially announced soon.
The third phone Mercury will be a mid-ranger and is expected to release in Q1 2017. It will feature BlackBerry's traditional QWERTY keyboard below the display, just like BlackBerry Passport and Classic. The phone will reportedly come with 4.5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt storage, 18MP rear camera, 8MP front camera and 3400mAh battery.
Until now this was a rumor but a new evidence points out at the existence of Mercury. A BlackBerry smartphone carrying model number BBB100-1 was spotted on Geekbench benchmarks. As per the benchmarks BBB100-1 will feature Snapdragon 625 processor and 3GB RAM, hinting that the phone might be Mercury.
Interestingly Mercury will ship with Google's latest Android Nougat 7.0, which is currently running on few devices like Google's Pixel and Pixel XL, and LG V20.
As mentioned earlier, BlackBerry Mercury is expected to release early next year.
