BlackBerry Mercury benchmarks pop up with Android Nougat
Post-DTEK50 and DTEK60, BlackBerry is preparing for another mid-ranger and that we think is being called Mercury around Waterloo. And the Geekbench 3 results have started lighting up for this thing, also being called the “BBB100-1”.
BlackBerry codes its devices with a three-letter combination and three digits with a dash and another number, so there’s that bit of explanation done. But what makes us believe that this device, whatever it is, makes it three for three?
Well, initial rumors painted this phone to carry Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset and the processor on this BBB100-1 does indeed to be an octa-core unit with a maximum clock speed of about 2GHz. The speculated 3GB of RAM is also here. There’s also Android 7.0 Nougat in here.
Processing scores range just at 900 for single-core testing and 5,000 for multi-core testing.
What would help is some inidication of form factor and we don’t see the 4.5-inch full HD screen and static QWERTY keyboard in any picture anywhere. But we assume that film is developing somewhere.
