BlackBerry DTEK70 is a new device from BlackBerry that has been leaked with Qwerty keypad. Earlier we have seen BlackBerry launching its BlackBerry DTEK50 and DTEK60 smartphones and this new device is expected to be launched early 2017. With the code name ‘Mercury’ the device might not come with top-end specs like the DTEK60 and with the rumored specification the device seems to be priced in between £275 to £475.
From the leaked image we can see that the device will be coming with a Qwerty keypad and can feature mid-range specifications. According to the rumors, it is expected that the handset will feature a Snapdragon 625 processor and come with a 4.5-inch HD display. There might be a Gorilla glass protection top to protect the device from minor falls.
There is also a possibility for the BlackBerry DTEK70 to have an 18MP camera sensor on the rear which will be accompanied with an 8MP camera on the front. To power the device there will be a 3,400 mAH battery. There will be the conventional sensors and connectivity option like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi that are needed for the automation of the handset.
The CEO, BlackBerry John Chen has said that A lot of enterprise customers have said to us: ‘I want to buy your phone, but $700 is a little too steep for me. I’m more interested in a $400 device. This indicates that the company will be trying to make this device below the $400 price mark to attract more customers.
Moreover, there is a fingerprint sensor integrated onto the spacebar to enhance the security levels on the device. For now, nothing is officially confirmed, so we have to take this news with a salt of grain.
