BlackBerry’s third Android smartphone is on the way, and according to a document accidentally published on the company’s website, it’s a touchscreen phone with a high-resolution display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a USB Type-C port, among other things.
The document has been removed, but The Next Web has published most of the important details about the upcoming BlackBerry DTEK60.
While the name might suggests the new phone will be an upgraded version of the $299 DTEK50, the spec sheet suggests it will be much more powerful (and probably more expensive):
- 5.5 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display
- Snapdragon 820 processor
- 4GB RAM and 32GB storage
- 3,000 mAH battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support
- USB 2.0 Type-C
- 21MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus and 4K/30fps video recording
- 8MP front camera
- Fingerprint sensor
All told, the phone has a bigger, higher-resolution display than the DTEK50, a faster processor, more memory and storage, a bigger battery, and higher-resolution cameras.
Like the DTEK50, though, the new DTEK60 is a touchscreen-only phone that will likely ship with Android 6.0 and BlackBerry’s custom suite of Android apps including BlackBerry Keyboard, Hub, Contacts, and more.
