BlackBerry DTEK60 could be the BlackBerry flagship we’ve all been waiting for


BlackBerry was rumored to be working on 2 smartphones for 2016, but to date we’ve only had the moderately-specced BlackBerry DTEK50. It’s not that it’s a bad phone, it just doesn’t wow on much of anything except for its promise of providing the best security in a smartphone.


But if you were looking for something more, then that other device we’ve heard about — codenamed Argon — might be more your taste. The device is being called DTEK60, which would give us the immediate assumption that this is a more powerful version of the DTEK50 made under the same premise.

Well, let’s take a look at a spec sheet leaked from BlackBerry’s own servers to see if it matches up with the lofty :

  • 5.5″ diagonal, 534 PPI, 2560 x 1440 Quad HD resolution
  • All-touch screen, with intuitive gesture based navigation
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 64-bit Quad-Core (MSM8996 with 64 bit Quad-Core 2+2 Kryo 2.15GHz / 1.6GHz), Adreno 530, 624MHz GPU
  • 4 GB RAM, 32 GB Flash
  • USB Type-C
  • 3000 mAh 4.4V non-removable Lithium-Ion battery QC3.0 Enabled
  • 21-megapixel auto-focus camera
  • 8-megapixel Fixed-Focus
  • Fingerprint sensor (DTEK60)
  • Convenience key

That sounding like something you were hoping for from the Waterloo company? Past rumors say to expect this beast at some point in October, so stay tuned.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
