Blackberry’s president and general manager Steve Cistulli has teased a short video of an upcoming QWERTY device on twitter. Which is probably the upcoming Blackberry Priv 2 and is all set to be released in the CES this time! 😀
(Do note that the company no more gets to design or manufacture their own products. Its all in the hands of TCL communications, which owns the branding rights of Blackberry and that’s where the new phone is really coming from)
Now there are rumors that it would be called “Mercury” but that could also be the code name and the actual device name might end up being the Blackberry Priv 2, but nothing is confirmed as of yet.
Here are the specifications:
- 4.5 Inch screen (possibly 1080p)
- Snapdragon 625
- 3GB RAM
- 35GB storage
- 3400 mAh battery
- Android 7.0
Let’s hope TCL doesnt overprice it like Blackberry did with the Priv. It probably wont work out for them.
So what do you think about QWERTY devices? are they antiquated? Are they more effective than on screen keyboards? Let us know in the comments below!
