One of the most secure android smartphones is finally out in the market.
BlackBerry has officially launched its high-end DTEK60. It is positioned between the mid-ranged DTEK50 and the higher-end Priv, as reported by The Verge.
It is the third Android phone launched this 2016. The Verge also noted that it follows the release of the DTEK50 from earlier this year and has better specs and features than the entry-level model.
According to Venture Beat, the DTEK60 is based on a TCL-reference design and has a very similar appearance to Alcatel's Idol 4S.
BlackBerry will not be trailed behind when it comes to the smartphones' specifications and features.
The 165g device phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and has 4GB RAM, 32GB of storage (expandable up to 2TB via microSD), as described by Venture Beat.
The Verge further reported the DTEK60's features stating that the smartphone includes 3000 mAh battery, a 21MP rear-facing camera, and an 8MP front-facing flash camera, a USB Type C port, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a customizable side button round out the DTEK60's spec sheet.
The latest phone runs with Android Marshmallow OS. This comes with BlackBerry's additional privacy, security, and productivity tools, as explained by Venture Beat.
The Venture Beat further reported that BlackBerry DTEK60 has been tagged as the one of the most secure android smartphones in view of its secure boot loader, Hardware Root of Trust, DTEK app, and rapid updates for security patching.
Since BlackBerry has been known for being the quickest to deliver security patches, it has set the bar in incident response and patch management to protect users' devices from malicious threats.
Another major security feature is DTEKTM by BlackBerry App which allows users to automatically check their OS and apps to identify when their privacy could be at risk, then subsequently take an action to improve it.
According to Venture Beat, the DTEK app also tracks applications and notify users when someone is: taking pictures or videos without their knowledge, it turns microphone on, sends a text message, or access contacts or location for their appropriate action.
