It's no secret that BlackBerry isn't doing so well these days - the PRIV hasn't sold very well due to its high price point, and the DTEK50 is simply a more expensive, rebadged Alcatel Idol 4 with some BlackBerry software. Though the DTEK60 is also based on an (unreleased) Alcatel/TCL device, it seems like a pretty compelling offering.



The DTEK60, which had its specifications leaked a few weeks back, sports a 5.5-inch 1440p AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot, a 21MP rear camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, and a 3000mAh battery. It's also got a fingerprint sensor on the back, a USB Type-C port (only 2.0, sorry), front-facing speakers, and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. These aren't the most beastly specs out there anymore, but they're more than adequate.

B&H seems to be the only retailer that has the phone up for pre-order, and they're asking $499.99. That's not OnePlus 3 or ZTE Axon 7-levels of cheap, but it's certainly not overpriced like the PRIV was. For your five Benjamins, not only do you get the phone, but also a BlackBerry-branded Quick Charge 2.0 charging brick and black "Soft Shell" case thrown in. A pair of headphones are included in the box.

If you're interested in pre-ordering, you can do so from the source link. We don't know when the phone will begin shipping yet.
