BlackBerry DTEK60 could be launching as early as next week if reports are to be believed and this could finally put to rest all the rumours and reports that started erupting ever since the handset’s specifications appeared on BlackBerry’s site.
Best thing about the DTEK60 will be the fingerprint sensor in case the the leak does turn out to be true. This could be the one thing that could appeal to business users into buying the smartphone that claims to have greater security and privacy compared to all other non-BlackBerry Android smartphones. A 5.5-inch display, a 64-bit Snapdragon processor, Adreno 530, 624 MHz GPU, 4 GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 21-megapixel rear-camera, and 8-megapixel front camera are some of the features that DTEK60 may have – at least according to BlackBerry’s official listing that appeared on the web sometime back.
BlackBerry has always been about security and privacy and with DTEK60 it will continue to enhance those. The DTEK60 will be featuring all the security and privacy features from the software angle as well as a fingerprint sensor that will appeal to many security conscious users as well as business users who want to protect their data through means beyond the traditional PIN.
New reports have emerged that the Canadian company is likely to make an announcement in the first couple of days of next week and the announcement could be related to BlackBerry DTEK60. BlackBerry had inadvertently leaked specifications of its DTEK60 on its own site which was picked up by multiple publishers. BlackBerry DTEK50 is currently on sale and chances are that the DTEK60 will be an incrementally better version of the Android smartphone that was released in July earlier this year.
It turns out BlackBerry and some its retail partners also put up DTEK60 up on Pre-order during the first half of October, but the pages were taken down abruptly indicating that they have may gone live much before the actual schedule. When the pre-order pages were live, the prices indicated were $700 and this is much higher than the $429 which DTEK50 costs. A German retailer also released an advertisement that appears to confirm the DTEK60’s release next week.
BlackBerry may have called it quits from the smartphone hardware manufacturing business, but it still have a few smartphones up its sleeve that are to be released with one among them being BlackBerry DTEK60.
