After quitting from smartphone production, BlackBerry seems to be more active outsourcing the job. While we are yet to witness an official launch of DTEK 60, another BlackBerry phone has popped up online. Rumored to be named BlackBerry Mercury, model number BBB100-1, has been found on Geekbench benchmark database.
According to the leaked benchmark, the BlackBerry Mercury will be a mid-range Moblie phone powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 625 running at 2.02GHz. The phone comes with 3GB RAM.

BlackBerry had stopped designing and manufacturing after its Priv smartphone launched previous year. The company had released DTEK 50 earlier this year, but it was a remodeled Alcatel Idol 4 smartphone. The other Alcatel-BlackBerry smartphone, DTEK 60, which is technically unannounced, has appeared online time and again. Some online retailers even set the BlackBerry DTEK 60 up for pre-orders, however, it is not available in India.
The BlackBerry DTEK 60 highlight a 5.5-inch AMOLED display Screen with 1440p resolution. The phone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 4GB RAM and 32GB ROM (internal storage), which is expandable up to 2TB using a microSD card.
