BlackBerry DTEK50 and DTEK60, the new set of slim BlackBerry Android phones made in association with manufacturing partner Alcatel have officially arrived in India.

Both, the mid-range DTEK50 and the flagship grade DTEK60, are banking on the secure DTEK software and popular BlackBerry services laid on top of Android Marshmallow base.


Everything you store on the phone will be FIPS 140-2 encryption protected. The bootloader is locked and the pre-installed DTEK app monitors security violations.

Talking of hardware specifications, Blackberry DTEK60 features a 5.5-inch Quad HD display and is powered by Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset paired with 4GB RAM and expandable 32GB storage. There is a 21MP primary rear camera and an 8MP selfie shooter on the front.
