BlackBerry’s second Android smartphone, DTEK50, was designed with built-in hardware security to address the security and privacy needs of today’s uncompromising Android users. The DTEK50 weighs 135g and features a 5’2-inch scratch resistant display with a 1920x1080 resolution, capable of displaying 16 million colours. Plus it is embedded with an 8MP front camera with flash and 13MP auto-focus rear camera. The DTEK50’s performance relies on Qualcomm 8952 with 64 bit Quad-core 1.5 GHZ Cortex-A53 and Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53. Plus its memory is 3GB RAM, with an expandable memory of up to 2TB via hot swappable microSD memory card. The DTEK50 features the BlackBerry Intelligent keyboard which is designed to learn from users and increase typing accuracy and speed. It provides word suggestions as the user type and includes up to three languages, letting the user flick them into place for faster conversations. DTEK50 was designed to address the security and privacy needs of today’s uncompromising Android users. Fully equipped with Android Marshmallow 6.0, DTEK50 encrypts all users’ information, including business critical data and personal data such as pictures, videos and contacts. DTEK50 by BlackBerry app enables users to automatically monitor their OS and apps to know when their privacy could be at risk and to take action to improve it. The DTEK app also tracks applications and notifies the user when someone is taking pictures or videos without their knowledge, turning their microphone on, sending a text message, or accessing their contacts or location. DTEK50 is expected to be available in the UAE and KSA in the coming weeks from leading retail stores and will be available at a suggested retail price of AED 1199 and SAR 1199.
