When it comes to the world of smartphone technology, while BlackBerry might not be the very first name that we think of in a modern day context, one must always remember that they were the ones who actually pioneered the art of smartphone making much before it was even called a ‘smartphone’. The company, which made business-grade devices back in the days when Nokia was dominating, was known for their multitasking and security efficient features, as well as the BBM back in the day. BlackBerry might have shut down their manufacturing division now, but they continue licensing devices. The latest BlackBerry smartphone to come out into the markets is that of the BlackBerry DTEK60.
The smartphone had been awaited for a long while, and there had been many speculations that surrounded the release of the device. The BlackBerry DTEK60 is actually the re-branded version of the unreleased TCL 950 smartphone. The device comes out into the markets with many modern-day features.
The BlackBerry DTEK60 releases with a 4GB RAM, and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. While the Google Pixel might have released with the Snapdragon 821, one must keep in mind that the 820 still powers some of the top devices in the markets such as the Samsung Galaxy S7, HTC 10, LG G5, LG V20 among many others.
The device offers the users with a 3000mAh battery that promises to last as many as 24 hours. It offers the users with 32GB of storage space, which can further be expanded with the help of a MicroSD card. The camera too, is quite impressive. The device comes equipped with a back camera of 21MP, and a front facing 8MP camera. The smartphone releases with a fingerprint scanner, as well as a USB Type-C port for easier, faster connectivity. The smartphone has been priced in at $499 and has gone for sale today.
