Blackberry has launched its third Android smartphone. The Blackberry DTEK60 comes with better specs than its DTEK50 predecessor released earlier this year, and takes design cues from TCL – an Alcatel Idol 4S precisely.
To fuel the device is a Snapdragon 820 SoC which can be found on other flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5, and HTC 10. This is paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage, along with support for microSD card up to 2TB.
On the camera side, the handset sports a 21MP rear snapper with PDAF and dual-tone LED flash, and an 8MP front-facing unit.
The Blackberry DTEK60 packs a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display, and is equipped with a 3000mAh battery. The device also comes with a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C, and boots Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Blackberry is big on security here – the DTEK60 includes a secure bootloader, Hardware Root of Trust, FIPS 140-2 encryption, and a DTEK app to monitor and fix privacy violations. The phone also includes a bunch of productivity apps by Blackberry, such as the Hub, Calendar, and a smart keyboard.
Price and Availability
The Blackberry DTEK60 carries a price tag of $499, and is currently available for purchase on BlackBerry’s online shop.
