BlackBerry DTEK60 Specifications
BlackBerry DTEK 60 – An All Round Winner
BlackBerry has made a stellar comeback with its latest phone – the BlackBerry DTEK 60. It’s a mid-range Android phone that delivers both on the security and productivity fronts. It’s one of the most impressive phones from BlackBerry of late, and is a perfect fit for the “Business User.” With the DTEK 60, BlackBerry has once again proved that it still reigns supreme in the world of “Work Phones.”
Let’s take a closer look at the various elements of this flagship phone from BlackBerry.
The famous Chinese firm TCL, which makes handsets for several other companies like Alcatel and Vodafone, assembles the DTEK 60 handsets. The DTEK 60 has a glass front and hardened plastic back, with the BlackBerry logo emblazoned on the back. The back panel is a potential fingerprint and scratch magnet, so it pays to add a protective cover.
The model flaunts a 5.5” AMOLED screen with a crystal sharp Quad-HD resolution of 1440 x 2560, with a pixel density of 534 PPI. Blacks appear as true blacks, and other colours are vivid, bright and punchy with a striking contrast ratio. It’s one of the best displays ever to grace a BlackBerry phone.
The BlackBerry DTEK 60 doesn’t come with any bloatware that usually plagues other Android phones. Instead, you get the clear, crisp interface of Android without any software lags.
BlackBerry takes security pretty seriously, and the DTEK 60 advertises itself as “The most secure Android Phone.” This is an excellent bonus for enterprise and business users.
The 3000mAH battery keeps the DTEK 60 powered for nearly 24 hours and better still the battery gets charged entirely within one hour.
The DTEK 60 flaunts a whopping 21MP primary camera and an 8MP selfie camera with LED flash. The front-facing camera has several features like HDR, slow-motion, panorama, manual controls, and Focus before capture to give you great images. You can also record 4K videos using the primary camera.
Features that Elevate the User Experience of a BlackBerry DTEK 60
• Fingerprint Scanner
The fingerprint scanner on the DTEK 60 is present on the back, just below the rear camera’s sensor. The scanner works quite fast and makes it easy to unlock your device in a jiffy. Additionally, you can also use it for making other in-app payments and NFC.
• Convenience Key
You can find the convenience key on the right-hand side of your phone, right in the middle. The convenience button is customizable, meaning you can set it to do any action you prefer. From opening specific applications to switching on the mute option, the choices are aplenty. While this may feel like a simple task, it’s really convenient, especially when you want to mute your phone, during a meeting quickly.
• BlackBerry Apps
BlackBerry has introduced several apps that improve the functionality. One such app is the WatchDox – a secure, file-sharing tool. You have complete control over the permissions granted and is encrypted meaning your docs are highly secure. Another app is the BlackBerry Hub – a unified inbox for all your emails, texts, calls, tweets, calendar appointments in one place.
