BlackBerry has launched its second Android smartphone, the DTEK50, priced at US$299. The DTEK50 features a 5.2-inch display with a 1920 by 1080 resolution, Qualcomm 8-core Snapdragon 617 CPU, 13-megapixel main camera and 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and supports Quick Charge 2.0 fast charging technology.
Fully equipped with Android Marshmallow 6.0, the DTEK50 combines BlackBerry’s unique security, privacy and productivity with the full Android experience in an all-touch design, the company said.
DTEK50 encrypts all users’ information, including business critical data and personal data such as pictures, videos and contacts. Malware protection is also built-in along with back-up, wipe and restore capabilities.
The company plans to launch another Android smartphone equipped with a physical keyboard shortly.
BlackBerry will begin to ship the DTEK50 on the week of August 8, but will start taking pre-orders in a number of countries, including the US, Canada, the UK and some markets in Europe from July 26.
