TCL already let us get our hands on its upcoming BlackBerry device, dubbed BlackBerry Mercury. Now, the Chinese company has announced it plans to hold a moreÂ formal event for the handset, where we can expect to learn its final specs.
According to TCL, an event will be held on February 25, about a month from now. â€œDistinctly different,â€ the teaser reads. No other information is provided.
When we saw the device at CES earlier this month, the Mercury reminded us of BlackBerry devices from a bygone era. Not only does it sport a familiar BlackBerry form factor, but it comes with a full QWERTY keyboard, something thatâ€™s become exceedingly rare in the era of touch displays.
We still donâ€™t know the specs
Although the deviceâ€™s metal design felt great, we still donâ€™t have the full picture. For one, TCL didnâ€™t share specs, an important barometer in todayâ€™s market. We are pretty confident this will be a midrange smartphone, however.
Itâ€™s also worth noting that the handset we saw at CES was still a work in progress, so what we see next month should be better in quality. Weâ€™ll know more soon.
