Screenshot of Nougat-powered BlackBerry Mercury leaks

Himanshu, 30 December 2016

The BlackBerry Mercury smartphone has leaked again. Specifically, a screenshot of Android 7.0 on the device has been leaked, allegedly confirming a display of 1620x1080 pixel resolution (420 ppi density).

The leak came in the form of a tweet from popular tipster Roland Quandt.

A quick look at the comment section of the aforementioned tweet reveals Quandt as saying that the handset is "highly likely" coming to Indonesia, and is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 625 SoC.

Rumor so far had suggested Snapdragon 821 chipset for the device. Other rumored specs include a screen size of around 4.5-inch, and a large battery, enough to get the handset through two days of use.

The Mercury - which features a physical QWERTY keyboard, a la original BlackBerry phones - has been the subject of only a handful of rumors and leaks so far. A recent render leak revealed a slightly different design than what we had seen before. The phone is said to be coming to Verizon in the US.
