BlackBerry will reportedly release its 2016 flagship phone in November. Dubbed as DTEK60, the company's new phone will come with powerful processor, bigger screen and support for quick charge technology.
By looking at the specs of DTEK60, also known as BlackBerry Neon 2, there are many interesting points to highlight. Let's start with its processing power: It will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4GB of RAM. Experts say these powerful internal components will definitely boost the phone's performance even under heavy use.
Buyers will also have plenty of storage space in DTEK60. The smartphone will offer 32GB of storage which is expandable for up to 256 GB via MicroSD card.
Blackberry's upcoming phone is said to arrive with pre-installed Android Marshmallow, which would be upgraded to Android Nougat next year.
In terms of design, rumors claim DTEK60 will feature a large 5.5-inch AMOLED display with Quad HD resolution. That means buyers will see a pixel density of around 534ppi (pixels per inch). At 153.9mm tall, 75.4mm wide and 7mm thin, the size and dimensions of the phone is reportedly the same with the Idol 4S from Alcatel.
Furthermore, DTEK60 is apparently an all-touch device. It will also have the BlackBerry Convenience key, which can be customized to open any apps or functions.
In the camera department, Blackberry is looking to improve the successor of DTEK50. The new device is listed to have a 21MP Sony IMX230 sensor with an f/2.2 aperture on its rear, and an 8MP snapper for selfies. Not only that, the phone will offer Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama and HDR mode.
All of these features will be fueled by 3000mAh battery with support for Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0.
Other specs of the DTEK60 include fingerprint sensor, stereo speakers, accelerometer, and compass.
The Verge says the device recently passed through the FCC certification process, meaning buyers will see it sooner rather than later. According a report from GSM Arena, Blackberry will announce DTEK60 in the next second week of November. Tech experts estimate the phone will be priced between $600-$700 USD.
However, as of now, nothing is confirmed. The DTEK60-related details mentioned above are only rumors and speculations, so readers are advised to take them with proverbial pinch of salt.
