The yet-to-be-announced BlackBerry Mercury smartphone will be available from Verizon in the United States. This was revealed by well known tipster Roland Quandt in a tweet late last week.
There was, however, no word on the device’s pricing and launch time frame.
So far, it was being said that the Mercury – which features a physical QWERTY keyboard, a la original BlackBerry phones – will be the last device to be released by the Canadian company, but Quandt revealed that it is in fact being built by TCL – design is from BlackBerry though.
Specs-wise, the phone is said to be powered by a Snapdragon 821 chipset and sport a curved display with a screen size of around 4.5-inch. It is also rumored to pack in a large battery, enough to get the handset through two days of use.
