We loved DTEK50 and its unique design and features, and newly software first firm has just announced a successor to it DTEK60. If news and rumors are to be believed DTEK60 is “worlds most secure” Android Smartphone.  Before going deep into the deep, here is a quick view on the specification of DTEK60

  • Design

Earlier nearly all high end devices of Blackberry, bet it PRIV, Passport and Porsche all had one thing in common, that was physical QWERTY keyboard. However a major change in the DTEK50 was it was all touch and this design has been used in DTEK60 as well, as it is all touch body just like its predecessor. However on a close look one can say it bear resemblance with Alcatel Idol 4S with a different design on back side.To ensure safety though Corning Gorilla Glass , a common feature is absent but, still it has scratch resistant and oleophobic coating.

  •  Display

DTEK60 boast of 5.5″ inch AMOLED display with HD resolution, similar to PRIV model.,which ensures a high density pixel display of around 534 pixel per inch(ppi). There were news and rumors about the display being in similar curve edges like PRIV , but that didn’t turned out to be true, instead, there are some slight curve toward the edges. However, the display aren’t anywhere near as pronounced  as Galaxy Edge-like curve on the PRIV.

  • Camera

As far as camera department is concerned , if you are expecting features like dual lens and high resolution front facing camera, than you might be a bit disappointed.Although, it doesn’t have have fancy features like dual lens, it has front facing 8MP which does a decent job and rear facing 21MP shooter, which captures good quality of images. In spite of lacking dual lens you can still capture 4K video through rear facing camera and with front HD recording is possible.

  • Hardware

There hasnt been much of a change in the Hardware specs. When you dig deep to detail you might it quite similar to all Flagship smartphone, with similar features like 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage expanding to 256GB with the help of micrsoSD  and so on. However,one change is quite shocking , and thats the processor. Although it uses high-end Snapdragon 820 processor, but if you look at the competition, Products like Pixel, which uses Snapdragon 821 chip, its nothing. In short inclusion of Snapdragon 820 means you wont be able to enjoy features like Daydream VR on your DTEK60 even if you upgrade from pre-installed Android v6.0 (Marshmallow) to Android 7.0 Nougat. There is a Port C on the bottom edge f the phone which supports full USB 2.0, which is more than what we are getting in the form of 1.0.
