Reading Time: 1 minute

 

BlackBerry is not ready to give up just yet. After switching to android with the introduction of BlackBerry Priv, BB is said to be working on three new BlackBerry phones set for end of 2016 and early in 2017. BlackBerry CEO John Chen believes the company still has its part to play in the market hence the need for these set of new BlackBerry phones despite Priv not doing so well sales-wise.

The new BlackBerry phones have been given the Codename – Neon, Argon and Mercury. If the reports are right, the Neon will be out this month or August, Argo should be out in October while Mercury should be in Q1 of 2017. This should be exciting. Let’s check the rumoured specs for each of the phones
