This security update comes as a response to the recent flair of data leaks, phone malware and network disruptions users faced in the past.
While many are calling it a re-branded Android device, it boasts tons of security and feature updates. But before we jump on to the security part, let’s take a look at its features. Here are ten solid reasons to why the DTEK50 might just be the hottest smartphone release of the year:-
1.The DTEK50 is Blackberry’s first touchscreen-only Android phone. That being said, buyers no longer have to worry about repetitive stress injuries that plagued the QWERTY keypads from the first Blackberries.
2. Under the stylish 5.2-inch, 1920×1080 scratch-resistant screen sits a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor. It runs on a quad-core 1.5GHz speed and boasts an Adreno 405 GPU.
3.It runs on the superior Android 6.0 Marshmallow and has a storage capacity of 16 GB with a 3 GB RAM.
4. Enjoy a rear camera with a 13MP f/2.0; PDAF dual-tone LED flash that supports an HDR, 1080p/30 video capability.
5. Blackberry has learned from the mistakes of it’s previous Priv release. The DTEK50 has an expandable memory of 2 TB and strikingly matches the features of the Alcatel Idol 4.
6. The front camera is no small talk either. It has a jaw-dropping 8MP f/2.2 1.12-micron pixels with selfie flash and 1080p/30 video capability.
7.All this combined in a thin 147 x 72.5 x 7.4 mm design, weighing a light 135 g. Blackberry truly has learned from the past.
