Since the arrival of smartphones in the world of electronic gadgets, Blackberry has taken a backstage as it has failed to keep up with the latest trends. In the recent times, two new smartphones came out with much of a success. So to make a strong comeback, Blackberry has tied up with TCL and is aiming to the reach the position where it once belonged. And the process might get a real boost if the latest rumours of the release of the Blackberry DTEK70 in the CES 2017 turn out to be true.
Blackberry released a couple of smartphones DTEK50 and DTEK60 recently but without much success. Both the phones were brought out in collaboration with TCL. And the recent tweet from Steve Cistulla has brought into light the fact that they have a big release in the coming days. Cistulla is the President and the General Manager of TCL. The upcoming device is rumoured to be coming with the title DTEK70, and if we go by the rumours and the tweet, we might expect the release of the new smartphone to be taking place during the Consumer Electronics Show 2017.
Very exciting news. Can’t wait to share more at #CES2017 #TheNewBlackBerryhttps://t.co/vklgf2hY2T

The Bit Bag reports that the upcoming Blackberry DTEK 70 might not have the best configurations possible and that has to do a lot with the complaints from many of the users of Blackberry smartphones that the devices are too highly priced. Hence the specs are rumoured to be a bit less impressive than what the premier smartphones in the market have.
However, that does not mean that the Blackberry DTEK 70 is not going to be a highly rated smartphone. As the reports suggest, this upcoming device from Blackberry and TCL is going to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clocked at a rate of 2 GHz and an Android operating system out-of-the-box. Also, the upcoming smartphone is slated to be coming out with the Blackberry keyboard which has been a fan favourite for quite a long time.
Regarding the price it can be said that it is going to be available at a much cheaper price because of the above-cited reasons. And experts have predicted that it is going to be unveiled with a price tag of $400. Earlier smartphones from Blackberry used to be rated very highly as far as the price tags are concerned. So this reduction in the price might make the new smartphone affordable for the fans who have been waiting for one like this for a very long time.
Very few have been revealed regarding the probable specs of this upcoming smartphone. So you need to keep an eye on this in order to get further updates on the Blackberry DTEK 70 which is also known as the Mercury. The unveiling of the smartphone is expected to be happening during the CES 2017. Perhaps that will provide the tech enthusiasts across the world with the information regarding the features of the Blackberry DTEK70.
