Blackberry was once the pioneer and leading brand in the smartphone market for years. However, since the rise of Apple’s iPhone and Google’s android, the company has shown serious decline in market sales. In a final attempt to win back its users, Blackberry has launched Mercury, the android-powered device manufactured by TCL.

During the recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, participants were given a sneak peak of the Blackberry Mercury where it gained mostly positive response. The sleek device showcases a radical new redesign making it unique with the combination of the classic QWERTY keyboard Blackberry is famous for.

It has a 4.2 inch touch screen with a fingerprint sensor built into the keyboard’s space bar.  It packs 32GB memory and would feature either a Qualcomm or Mediatek processor. It will also run on Android Nougat 7.0, the latest version of the Android OS.

The high-gloss polished keys and display glass give it a consistent polished look. Last but not the least; it boasts the trusted Blackberry security software that is updated real time to ensure maximum protection for corporate and personal information.

According to Blackberry CEO John Chen, the Mercury would be the last model the company engineered and designed themselves. Last September, the company revealed that it would leave the smartphone business for good. However, it would continue to look for partner companies to work with to build and distribute Blackberry devices around the globe. Apparently, the first firm had been TCL as it plans to release several Blackberry smartphones later this year.

The Blackberry Mercury will be initially available in North America and Europe in the first quarter of 2017 with a wider release pending. After which, the company would focus on software development and working with other local and international companies to manufacture and distribute their phones.
