    It's been confirmed 625. So I'll be betting on that.

    Wow! Here I was thinking that this was probably some garbage-recycled article from some no-name site and it turns out to be TechnoBuffalo... I hope they're right but...

    Another speculative article looking for hits. Why say it's almost certain to come with a 625 when you can say some people believe it might have an 821?

    I don't see any confirmed sources for either actually. What are you referring to?
    I actually see people referencing both but I find it interesting this website states multiple facts like the name, etc that are speculation based off Twitter until proven...

    I believe the 625 was found to fit with the Geekbench results.

    That Twitter account is essentially the only source w/r/t the Mercury that isn't some lame render.

    821 is old news. 835 or bust.

    Probably a typo. The 821 has never come up in any leaks and would push the price up quite significantly. I would be extremely surprised if it didn't come with the 625. I doubt BlackBerry would release a new Flagship so close to the DTEK60

    We will be lucky if it's 821.

    Hope for a 625 or otherwise it will be an over $500 device.

    Not a typo. Just a way for his updated article get a bit more attention.

    That would be perfect and solve all the price / performance debate.

    I wish BBRY would do that more often but they never have done it like that before.

    For a phone with limited appeal already? Too costly for that.

    Why it can't be two variants? Aka Q5 / Q10??? Z3/ Z30?? DTEK50/DTEK60?

    I think they will show two devices, one with 625 3gb ram and 821 4 gb ram...

    Maybe that's why we have been having two versions of the processor.

    Why does it need the 821? My hope would be 4 gigs of ram over 3. I can live with the 625.

    Because Android is slower then BB10 and to be able to multi-task the way you can on a Passport, you need a processor that's actually top-tier for competitive Android devices in 2017. This isn't 2015.

    Absolutely not. Even my DTEK50s (with a 617) fly circles around my Passport SE (running Android apps).

    Yes you need it, for multitasking you need a powerful processor and ram. The DTEK50 struggles when playing music and browsing at the same time... that's bad.

    If there is a market for a PKB phone..... then releasing two identical devices with just slight different specs might be a good move. I sort of doubt that TCL is that BOLD, as there is no evidence there is a market large enough to support one device, let alone two.

    Think price point is going to be a very key element in how well this phone does, 625 should be a good fit.

    I disagree completely. My DTEK50 users do this every day without a single complaint.
