The company released a new mid-range handset called the DTEK50 not too long ago, it’s following that up with a high-end model called the DTEK60. BlackBerry has officially launched the DTEK60 today, those who are interested in buying one can do so from the company’s website unlocked and off-contract.
BlackBerry DTEK60 is based on a reference design from TCL and it actually looks quite similar to the Alcatel Idol 4S. BlackBerry’s new handset features a 5.5 inch Quad HD display in a metal frame with dual glass panels.
It’s powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor and features a 21 megapixel rear camera. The handset also features a 3,000mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0 support and it comes with a fingerprint scanner on the back as well as a USB Type-C port.
