Official, Blackberry Lunches DTEK50, it Runs on Android OS

There has been lots of rumors and leaks about BlackBerry's second Android-running device. At various points this was said that Blackberry would release either Hamburg, Neon, or DTEK50, with an official press backing the leak some hours back. Now, out of the three smartphone names that was leaked, BlackBerry chose DTEK50 to be the phone's official name. As rumored, the BlackBerry DTEK50 has the alcatel Idol 4s design like and it is a mid-range Android device that got announced at the beginning of this year. The difference between the Alcatel Idol 4s, obviously, is that the DTEK50 runs BlackBerry's interpretation of Android and its missing in the Alcatel smartphone.

The latest Blackberry DTEK50 comes with a preinstalled BlackBerry Hub, as well as the BlackBerry keyboard, while DTEK (the software) monitors your overall security rating and has suggestions for improving it. DTEK tracks your apps, it also has the ability to notifies you when someone uses your device to take pictures or videos without your notice, or even trying to accessing your contacts or location.

The same goes for when your microphone is turned on and when an SMS is sent. The phone also features a programmable BlackBerry Convenience Key, pop-up widgets, BlackBerry Device Search, Instant Actions, and Gesture Controls as part of the Canadian company's software enhancements to Android.
According to Blackberry, the DTEK50 is "the world's most secure Android smartphone"  but if you believe that then you also see how ironic the statement is, because it appears that the device is more secure than the expensive Priv (Blackberries first Android smartphone.).

In terms of the specification of the device, if you know that of the Alcatel 4 and 4s, then you know the BlackBerry DTEK50's too, because they seem alike and very identical. So, the newest BlackBerry comes with a display of 5.2-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 13 MP main camera with phase detection autofocus and LED flash, an awesome 8 MP front facing selfie shooter, powered by a Qualcomm's Snapdragon 617 SoC, boosted with a 3GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage with an expandable storage option, and a 2,610 mAh battery and runs on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

As for the price, the new device is priced at $299, €339, CAD 429, and £275, respectively and it's already up for pre-order from BlackBerry's own website in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. However, the device would be available on the 8th of August.
