BlackBerry DTEK60 Leaked Press Photos on Twitter

Believe it or not, BlackBerry is still releasing smartphones, despite the reduced interest for its models. After introducing their first Android-powered model, Priv, back it 2015, the Canadian manufacturer seems to be sticking to Google’s operating system!

Today, a set of official press photos with the BlackBerry DTEK60, one of their upcoming models, was spotted online and, after taking a first look at them, we knew there was something familiar about it. Keeping it short, it looks exactly like the Alcatel IDOL 4S, the only thing changed being the logo on the back.

However, there’s a reason being this resemblance: the BlackBerry DTEK60 will be made by TCL, Alcatel’s parent company. And the interesting part is that the handset will be way better, in terms of processing power, than the IDOL 4S.

To be more specific, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 chip, alongside 4GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, expandable using a microSD card slot. On the back, it will come with a 21 MP camera, teaming up with an 8 MP front-facing snapper, while the display will measure 5.5 inches and feature a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.

Moving on, the BlackBerry DTEK60 is also expected to be built around a metallic frame and have a fingerprint scanner on the back. In terms of battery, a 3000 mAh power pack is mentioned, which should be enough for a full day of intensive use.

It’s still unknown if the phone will offer dual SIM support, as the Alcatel IDOL 4S, but considering that an FCC certification mentions two DTEK60 model numbers, it might as well be available with two SIM slots as well. On the other side, the model numbers could also hint at a GSM and a CDMA variant.

The BlackBerry DTEK60 should be unveiled on November 11 and it’s expected to have a price tag between $499 and $549.
