Blackberry’s DTEK60 Now Available for Pre-Order in the US


While Blackberry has officially given up on hardware development, the Canadian tech company is still in the business of releasing smartphones under their brand. The earlier released DTEK50 is proof of that new direction, as the phone is essentially a rebadged Alcatel Idol 4S. Hurray for outsourcing.

The DTEK60 is a flagship tier offering from Blackberry, most likely a reconfigured device from TCL, Alcatel’s parent company. The recently unveiled TCL 950 shares a lot similarities with the DTEK60, so it’s probably safe to say that this one’s a rebadged phone too.

  1. I would say, this is priced lower than I expected. Specs are better than the more expensive Galaxy A9 pro. And it is a little better than the very expensive zenfone 3 deluxe (Asus is still in dreamland). A better buy than the galaxy A9 pro and ZF3. How about its performance? Hope unbox can give us a review on this unit.

      1. Bakit may ganyang tao? Ang tino ng comment tapos may magsasabi ng ganyan. Sobrang lala ng ugali walang pinagaralan.

      2. Know what, Mr. Ocampo? If you have nothing nice to say, better keep it to yourself. You’re only showing how rude your attitude is.
