We got a small taste of the BlackBerry Mercury at CES earlier this month, and now it looks like the full meal will be served at MWC in February.
BlackBerry today confirmed that it’ll be holding an MWC 2017 event on February 25. The BlackBerry Mercury is prominent featured in the teaser, suggesting that we’ll learn all about the new device at this event.

As a refresher, the BlackBerry Mercury (that’s a codename, by the way) is a new Android 7.0 Nougat smartphone with a physical QWERTY keyboard that's being made by TCL, the company that also makes Alcatel phones. The Mercury's candy bar form factor makes it a bit different than the Priv, BlackBerry’s other QWERTY-clad Android smartphone, and the Mercury also offers a USB Type-C port. Most of the Mercury’s spec details are still a mystery, but that ought to change once February 25 rolls around.
While we wait for this BlackBerry Mercury event to roll around, you can check out our hands-on video of the device right here. Are you looking forward to the Mercury?
