BlackBerry is not just working on that Neon that takes after the Alcatel Idol 4 that we saw yesterday. It also has one other mid-range Android smartphone it is working on and another whose reported specifications rival those of the PRIV.
According to Venturebeat, the two other devices are codenamed Argon and Mercury.
The devices will be released at a rate of one per quarter with the Neon likely to come out first.
The Neon is a lower mid-range device while the Argon is the smartphone out to steal the PRIV’s thunder packing a reported 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 3,000mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner, a 21-megapixel and 8-megapixel back and front camera arrangement and Quick Charge 3.0. Unlike the PRIV, however, the Argon won’t have a physical keyboard. That’s reserved for the Mercury. The Mercury’s physical, though, is permanent and not one you can slide out as is the case with the PRIV. It has a 4.5-inch full HD display, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 3,400mAh battery and two 18 and 8-megapixel cameras on the back and front of its all-aluminium body.
