As rumors surrounding the much-anticipated iPhone 7 continue to swirl, BlackBerry is hoping it can regain some long lost traction with its new DTEK50. Referred to as the world’s most secure Android smartphone, the DTEK50 delivers BlackBerry’s unmatched security, privacy and productivity at an affordable price.
DTEK50 acts as BlackBerry’s second smartphone powered by Android, coming fully equipped with Android Marshmallow 6.0. The all-touch design then combines BlackBerry’s unique security, privacy and productivity with the full Android experience.
As smartphones are increasingly being targeted for cyberattacks, DTEK50 is designed to address the security and privacy needs of today’s Android users. Thus, DTEK50 encrypts all users’ information, including business critical data and personal data such as pictures, videos and contacts. Malware protection is built-in as well, in addition to back-up, wipe and restore capabilities. Additional software then provides users with visibility and control over which apps get access to personal information or device features.
DTEK50 also comes complete with BlackBerry’s enterprise management solutions, including Android for Work and Google Play for Work, as well as Full Enterprise Mobility Management Support.
From a design standpoint, the new Android smartphone boasts a BlackBerry Intelligent Keyboard, BlackBerry Hub, customizable BlackBerry Convenience Key, 5.2-inch full HD display, 8MP front facing camera and 13MP auto-focus rear camera.
DTEK50 also supports micro SD cards to provide users with additional memory.
Interested buyers can go ahead and pre-order BlackBerry’s DTEK50 Android smartphone for $299 USD.
