BlackBerry seems to be on a roll for releasing Android handsets, they recently unveiled the budget-friendly DTEK50 and now, according to their own website, we’ll be soon treated with yet another smartphone titled DTEK60. The reveal comes from BlackBerry’s product page where the details have been accidentally leaked on a page which has been surprising, named “donotpublish.html” by the developers. The device has been making appearances under the name “Argon”, however, it has now been confirmed to be a flagship sporting premium hardware.
In terms of specifications, DTEK60 will feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440 resolution) panel up front and is going to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 64-bit Quad-Core processor (MSM8996 with 64 bit Quad-Core 2+2 Kryo 2.15GHz / 1.6GHz), 4GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 2TB, and a Adreno 530, 624 MHz GPU. Additionally, it will run on a 3000 mAh non-removable battery with support for Quick Charging 3.0. DTEK60 will also come with a USB Type-C port, fingerprint scanner, and a convenience key of some sort. The camera arrangement includes a 21-megapixel rear camera with a 6-element f2.0 lens, Dual Tone LED Flash, 4x digital zoom, 4K video recording at 30fps and an 8-megapixel Fixed-Focus front shooter with an aperture of f/2.2 and 84˚ wide angle/field of view lens.
While the web page lacks an image, rumors are stated that Argon will resemble the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro smartphone. In retrospect, DTEK50’s design was completely based on Alcatel’s Idol 4. DTEK60 could be assumed for basically, a beefier and costlier variant of its younger sibling. Moreover, pricing and availability details are missing too as of now. It’s no wonder that BlackBerry is currently on the edge of extinction in the smartphone market. The Canadian company has been trying to make a profitable comeback through Android handsets, however, their attempts have been futile until now with the recently unveiled DTEK 50 or the flagship, Priv. Unless they come up a unique approach for enhancing their decline sales, DTEK60 will be yet another disappointment.
