CANADIAN PHONE OUTFIT BlackBerry has confirmed that its next Android smartphone, the BlackBerry DTEK70, will be unveiled on 25 February.
BlackBerry and its manufacturing partner TCL gave us a brief look at the smartphone at CES earlier this month, and while it confirmed the device's full QWERTY keyboard and Android OS, the firms didn't cough on final specifications.
BlackBerry has confirmed on Twitter that the DTEK70, codenamed 'Mercury', will be shown off in full on 25 February, just before this year's MWC kicks off.
While we have another month to wait until BlackBerry reveals the device's full specifications, a handful of leaks has told us all we need to know about the mid-range smartphone.
As well as a full keyboard, the BlackBerry DTEK70 is expected to pack a 4.5in Full HD touchscreen, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor running at 2.02GHz. Speculation also points to 3GB RAM, 32GB of storage, an 18MP rear camera, an 8MP selfie camera, a 3,400mAh battery and a fingerprint scanner baked into the space bar.
You can also expect BlackBerry's custom software features to come installed, including its BlackBerry Hub app for managing notifications, the firm's DTEK mobile security management software and BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). Yay.
