The handset spotted in the benchmark database carries the model name BBB100-1 and comes loaded with Android 7.0. Its specs confirm the previous rumors, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC and 3 GB of memory.

Now that BlackBerry has announced the complete stop of its hardware development, we will probably get just one or two additional handsets from the company once known as RIM. The last devices mentioned by various rumors for a while should be ready to hit the market anytime soon. For example, a device that appears to be the BlackBerry Mercury has recently surfaced on Geekbench.

The smartphone listed on the benchmarks website shows up as model BBB100-1. The device has been benchmarked more than once, and its specs include Android 7.0 Nougat, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, as well as 3 GB of memory. The benchmark results of this setup range between 903 and 913 single-core points and between 4971 and 5072 multi-core points.

BlackBerry Mercury/BBB100-1 still has to become official, so nothing is certain yet and all the above should be taken with a grain of salt. Earlier rumors and leaks also mentioned a 4.5-inch HD display, a 3400 mAh battery, and 8 MP/18 MP cameras.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
