Dubbed ‘Mercury’, this device will be designed, overseen and built by TCL (Alcatel’s parent company). TCL president Steve Cistulli showed a teaser of their upcoming BlackBerry device prior to the start of CES.
Rumours indicate that the new smartphone will feature a 1620×1080 pixel resolution with about 420 ppi. That works out to a screen size of about 4.63 inches. Other rumoured specifications include a Snapdragon processor (Android Central believes it could be a 625 chip), 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
