TCL President Steve Cistulli tweeted a teaser of the device today as seen above. It is rumored to have a 4.63 inch display and a 1620×1080 resolution with a 420 ppi. It will also have a Snapdragon processor, 3GB of RAM as well as 32GB of internal storage and of course run Android.

Don’t expect this to be a high end processor though, given the 3GB of RAM it will probably be paired with a 652 or lower chipset. The new BlackBerry Mercury will get its official reveal at this years CES 2017.
