The BlackBerry DTEK70 ‘Mercury’ Is Seen in Renderings before Its Official Announcement

Although BlackBerry OS has died, originating in Canada brand computers will still continue to talk about the hand of Android. As we already knew several weeks ago, BlackBerry has outsourced the manufacture of the hardware, which now will be borne by the company TLC, completely and your next device could be the rumored BlackBerry DTEK70 or Mercury.

Following the launch of the BlackBerry DTEK50 and DTEK60 with Android, it seemed that BlackBerry had not only finished with your operating system, if not with the element having their teams of the competition: the full physical keyboard. Everything indicates that the BlackBerry Mercury or DTEK70 shall be responsible for bringing back the QWERTY keyboard and we already have various renderings to take a look at its possible design.

The return of the QWERTY keyboard

As I said, the two models of BlackBerry bet on a design in which the absolute protagonist is the touch screen, but if we take a look back also we have the BlackBerry Priv, the first model of the brand with Android, where a touch panel fairly broad (5.4 inches) with a sliding QWERTY keyboard.

In this case it would be a slide, if not design that the front would be shared by the screen and the keyboard, Although the panel would occupy much more space as seen in the pictures. In particular, the diagonal of the panel would be in 4.6 inches and keyboard would be at the bottom. By the way, the fingerprint reader would be integrated into the space bar.

In images you can also see the back camera, with a fairly wide lens, and the BlackBerry logo in the Center. If previously filtered data are not wrong, the rear camera will feature 18 megapixel It would be in 8-megapixel resolution and sensor for selfies.

Other features include a Snapdragon 625 eight-core processor with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal capacity. The version of the operating system would be Android 7.0 Nougat.
