The Blackberry DTEK50 Smartphone Difference

Blackberry has gone through quite a slide these past several years. Once the top provider of enterprise-grade mobile phones, they have since slid down the ladder. They have been facing challenges of late as their once dominant position have eroded as far as becoming seemingly an irrelevant player in the highly competitive smartphone market. But they are not waving the white flag yet as they try to take a new direction in crawling back up the ladder. They are taking a different route this time by introducing new phones like the Blackberry DTEK50 smartphone.

Blackberry DTEK50The Blackberry DTEK50 may be unlike any smartphone with that typical Blackberry design. Gone is the physical QWERTY keyboard many associate with Blackberry phones. This one also uses an Android-based OS given that Blackberry touch in terms of security. Another big departure that the company made here is outsourcing its design from another phone maker, TCL, which is behind the Alcatel brand of phones. That is the main reason why this Blackberry phone is different.

Inside, the Blackberry DTEK50 features an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor with an Adreno 405 GPU and 3GB of RAM. It comes with a 5.2-inch, 1080p IPS LCD touchscreen display.  It also comes with an 8MP front camera and a 13MP rear one with a two-tone LED flash. Although it comes with just 16GB of internal storage, the Blackberry DTEK50 comes with a microSD slot that can support up to 2TB of external storage.

The Blackberry DTEK50 is also considered as the thinnest Blackberry phone so far. One reason is by having a slimmer and fixed 2,610mAh battery, which can go up to 14 hours of mixed usage. What stands out on this phone is the security it offers. This makes it ideal for enterprise use, the main market that made Blackberry so popular during its heydays. And to even attract companies to use it as their enterprise phone, the Blackberry DTEK50 is priced as a mid-range phone at around $299. All in all, it may have its place among users who rely on using a secure phone. But for the greater number of consumers who do not look so much into security, it may just be like any other mid-range smartphone made more affordable.
