BlackBerry launches new Android phone, is “world’s most secure smartphone”

BlackBerry has just introduced its second Android handset — the DTEK50. It basically has the hardware specs and form factor of the Alcatel Idol 4 but comes packed with the company’s security that they’re known for.


BlackBerry DTEK50 specs:
5.2-inch Full HD LTPS IPS display @ 1080 x 1920, 424ppi
1.7GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617
Adreno 407
16GB internal storage
13 MP f/2.0 rear PDAF camera with dual-tone LED flash
8MP front camera with LED Flash
Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (dual-band)
Bluetooth 4.2LE
FM Radio
Android 6.0 Marshmallow
2610mAh Li-Ion battery


As for the security features that BlackBerry incorporated, it uses the aptly-named DTEK software that shields users from malware commonly found on Android smartphones. The company just made some tweaks to fuse elements from their BB10 platform to make the handset more safe from security threats.

The DTEK50 is priced at $299.99 (approx. Php14K) and will be available unlocked starting August 8.
