Blackberry has revealed that it will make a comeback this year with a new smartphone.

The phone appears to have a physical QWERTY keyboard, allowing users to type out messages and emails like famous Blackberry models in the past.
It comes with a 4.2 inch touchscreen, which is slightly smaller than most iPhone and Android devices.
The Mercury will also run Android Nouget 7.0 and come complete with Blackberry favourites including Blackberry Messenger and Blackberry Hub.
There is currently no information on price or release date but the Blackberry Mercury is expected to go on sale for around £400 when it drops in the UK later this year.
