Although its popularity has decreased severely, BlackBerry is still pushing forward to recover its old importance in the phone market, with some devices that promise to be outstanding products. Although in the past weeks it was informed about the Mercury model, the latest information reveals that the Canadian company would release another new smartphone called BlackBerry press, which would include the old-fashioned QWERTY keyboard.
The BlackBerry Press Would Be Made By TCL
According to Trusted Reviews, the BlackBerry Press would be the first mobile device made by a third-party, since the Canadian giant recently decided to outsource its phone manufacturing business. This other party will be TCL, and a tweet from its North American President Steve Cistulli revealed the new smartphone, which would be unveiled at the giant tech show CES 2017.
Although some of its specs and features remain unknown, what seems as a fact is that the BlackBerry Press will sport the physical QWERTY keyboard, which clearly represents the company´s intention of keep pushing in a feature that even when modern mobile devices use the touchscreen, still have plenty of users who prefers it. In fact, the BlackBerry Priv already had it, and the upcoming BlackBerry Mercury will sport it too.
The BlackBerry Press Could Be The Mercury
As reported by Tech Radar, Cistulli made some statements regarding his tweet, in which he explained that the company will unveil more information about the BlackBerry Press at the CES, and it would give a glimpse into what the new BlackBerry smartphones will offer to the customers around the world.
Apparently, the BlackBerry Press will still be running on Android, and many believe that this mobile device might be the BlackBerry Mercury, although this information hasn't been confirmed. Nevertheless, if this happens to be the truth, we will see a smartphone that would sport a 4.5-inch display, a 2.0GHz Qualcomm CPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Without any kind of doubt, BlackBerry is back to the game.
