BlackBerry’s two latest releases, the DTEK60 and lower tiered DTEK50, have been extremely security conscious thanks to the innovative DTEK application.

DTEK by BlackBerry works by encrypting all of the data on your device, whilst monitoring your Operating System and apps to notify you when your privacy could be at risk. Both devices will show you how you can take action to improve it, whilst notifying you when someone is:

  • Taking pictures or videos without your knowledge
  • Turning your microphone on
  • Sending a text message
  • Accessing your contacts, location or financial information

BlackBerry ‘Argon’ to be named BlackBerry Dtek60

Monday, October 3rd, 2016

Last week the internet was flooded with leaked images and Spec sheets for the BlackBerry Argon / DTEK60. Things are starting to look official now, with details landing on the FCC and WiFi Alliance websites.

The FCC showed registration of a device under the model number BBA1001, which matched to a handset on the WiFi alliance site under the name BBA1001 and DTEK60, suggesting that the ‘Argon’ moniker has been dropped. The WiFi alliance also shows the use of Android 6.0.1, not the expected Android Nougat, however we do expect this could change closer to release date.

Read the BlackBerry ‘Argon’ DTEK60 Leaked Specifications Here

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

BlackBerry teased us yesterday with a brief yet detailed leak on their US site of a yet-to-be announced BlackBerry, the DTEK60 (or Argon).

BlackBerry Dtek60 Argon

Whilst the published page was soon taken down by the tech giant, sites including CrackBerry were quick to screenshot and share the information on the BlackBerry DTEK50‘s successor. According to the leaks, the site reveals the DTEK60 will have a larger screen and a faster processor. However, the big news is the addition of a fingerprint sensor, a first for BlackBerry’s Android-powered smartphones and a feature that was sorely missed from the BlackBerry Priv.

The Dtek60 promises to be a high end handset, however it is looking as though there will be no physical keyboard to speak of.

Here’s the specs at a glance (taken from a screenshot of the now-deleted DTEK60 specs document on BlackBerry’s website):

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 64-bit Quad-Core SoC

  • 3000 mAh non-removable battery
  • QC3.0 (Quick Charge) Enabled

BlackBerry Priv VS BlackBerry Dtek50

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

The release of the BlackBerry Priv saw the security minded manufacturer move over to the Android OS, offering a secure and solid interface. The release of the BlackBerry DTEK50 has continued to developed BlackBerry’s relationship with Android and popularised the pairing of these tech giants.

BlackBerry Priv vs BlackBerry Dtek50

If you’re not sure which BlackBerry Android handset to choose, read on for a side by side comparison.

1. Size

The BlackBerry DTEK50 is the smaller of the pair, measuring 147 x 72.5 x 7.4mm and 135g, with the Priv coming in at a slightly larger 147 x 77.2 x 9.4mm and  192g.

2. Keyboard

The BlackBerry Priv offers SmartSlide technology with a QWERTY keyboard, while the DTEK50 is touchscreen only (no physical keyboard).


The Priv houses a slightly larger display to match its larger frame, with a 5.4 inch screen ( resolution at 2560 x 1440 pixels & 540ppi.)

The BlackBerry DTEK50 houses a 5.2-inch display that features a Full HD resolution resulting in a pixel density of 424ppi.

4. Hardware

BlackBerry’s Priv is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chip and is supported by 3GB of RAM. It offers double the internal memory than the DTEK50 at 32GB (expandable via micro SD). The DTEK50 runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 617 processor, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable flash memory.

5. Software

Running on Android Marshmallow with a number of pre-loaded apps (including the incredible DTEK security software, the BlackBerry DTEK50 offers a solid experience.  The BlackBerry Priv also runs on Android, also with a number of pre-loaded apps.

6. Cameras

Capture the moment with DTEK50′s 13-megapixel rear camera, with f/2.0 aperture, dual-tone LED flash, optical image stabilisation and phase detection auto focus. The handset is capable of recording 1080p video at 30fps and houses an 8 megapixel front-facing camera with an f/2.2 aperture and selfie flash.

The Priv does offer a slightly higher resolution rear camera at 18-megapixels with a dual LED flash, OIS, PDAF and a dual-LED flash on board. However the aperture is slightly narrower at f/2.2 and the front-facing is a mere 2-megapixel offering that only manages 720p and misses the wide-angle lens and selfie flash that is featured on the DTEK50.

Both handsets offer an incredibly secure and efficient user experience and are available sim free today. Purchase the BlackBerry Priv and BlackBerry DTEK50.
