BlackBerry DTEK60 all but confirmed for launch
We recently reviewed the BlackBerry‘s DTEK50 and we now have pretty solid evidence that a DTEK60 is on the way as a successor.
It first showed under our radar when a document leaked on the Internet showing three upcoming devices made in partnership with Alcatel. We know that the DTEK50 was a rebadged Alcatel Idol 4S and it looks like the same will be done with the DTEK60 and TCL 950 smartphone (from the company that owns Alcatel).
There also has been an instance when BlackBerry accidentally posted the device’s listing on their website confirming that it will be named DTEK60. Additionally, an FCC entry has just been certified which reaffirms the specifications first revealed back in July.
These specifications include:
5.5-inch WHD display @ 2560 x 1440 resolution
Snapdragon 820 processor
32GB internal storage
Expandable via microSD
21MP rear camera
8MP front camera
3000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
BlackBerry recently announced that it will no longer manufacture their own smartphones and instead, will shift its focus on teaming up with other brands.
Along with these data, a series of press images have also been available showing a fingerprint sensor, front-firing dual speakers, and USB Type-C port. It actually shows a huge resemblance to the just-announced TCL 950 which further supports previous claims.
As for the price, it is said to carry a $CAD700 (approx. Php26K).
The BlackBerry DTEK60 is arriving soon, no doubt. Does this spark an interest in you as a consumer?
