BlackBerry officially announced the new model DTEK60, the third business phone based on the Android operating system.
As in the case of DTEK50, the new model is made by the Chinese company TCL-Alcatel Idol 4S model chassis.
But this time, the company has opted for integrated hardware improvement to the model that is based DTEK60 integrating hardware brands, comparable to another high-end smartphone market, but this time, BlackBerry has the advantage of price, which is lower than the rumors suggested.
DTEK60 from BlackBerry, a smartphone with Android is quite common, being carried around a display of 5.5 “QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). The phone uses a glass building on both sides, joined on the sidelines of a metal frame.
While Alcatel Idol 4S comes with mid-range hardware, BlackBerry has chosen a number of components more efficient, while maintaining a competitive price.
Thus, we deal with a phone equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon from 820, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage and the ability to add microSD cards up to 256 GB. 21-megapixels camera can shoot in 4K resolution, while the front camera 8 megapixel shooting “only” in Full HD.
Of course, charging plug is now USB Type-C, and on the back was an integrated fingerprint sensor, a first for BlackBerry devices bearing the brand.
Of course, the Canadian company expects proprietary software to be a great attraction for potential customers, DTEK60 being delivered with BlackBerry application suite, a highly secure bootloader and promise faster delivery of security updates.
The phone will ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow but BlackBerry promised an upgrade to Nougat in the shortest time possible.
Given the technical specifications of top and design attractive, we have expected a price as high as other smartphones with similar capabilities, but Blackberry sells DTEK60 price of only $ 499 in the United States a price that other manufacturers sell premium mid-range devices.
