BlackBerry isn't giving up on producing new Android smartphones in 2017. The company's next QWERTY-equipped device, the BlackBerry Mercury. When it comes to being the biggest player in the game to almost exiting the market totally, BlackBerry knows all too well how high you can soar and how far you might fall.
The company's lineup of QWERTY smartphones, which ranged from the high-end BlackBerry Bold to the mid-range Curve and as well as Pearl series, got users hooked to the idea of having a physical QWERTY keyboard built into the phone experience.
BlackBerry Mercury Design
Well, unlike classic BlackBerry handsets the screen won't be square but feature a more regular touchscreen aspect, according to sources, most recent report on the new BlackBerry phones suggests it won't be the usual widescreen 16:9 ratio, but instead a 3:2 ratio display. As well as having a slightly shorter display, it's expected to measure just 4.5-inches diagonally but still pack in a panel with full HD resolution. With that 1080p looks great on full-size 5.5-inch screens, the smaller display on the DTEK70 should be really crisp.
