BlackBerry DTEK50 Launched, Touted as World's Most Secure Smartphone

Struggling smartphone manufacturer BlackBerry, once billed as a top brand years ago, recently announced its second Android-powered device, the BlackBerry DTEK50. A seemingly rebadged Alcatel Idol 4, the BlackBerry DTEK50, the company claims, is the world's most secure smartphone. They've done this by having their DTEK software run on the device, checking for potential risks that casual Android users may encounter, such as malware on tainted .apk files.

Previously identified as the BlackBerry Neon, the DTEK50 features a 5.2-inch FHD IPS display, a Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear + 8-megapixel front camera configurations, and a 2610mAh battery. It also runs on Android's latest Marshmallow software. The hardware it features are pretty decent for the price, though it doesn't have dual SIM support

The BlackBerry DTEK50 is now up for pre-order for $299 directly from BlackBerry, and will come out on August 8th.
